The cover art of this story is well done, it shows the main character over looking something and appears ready to act, and while in the story the main character “Oh” doesn’t want to be called a hero, the cover clearly shows him looking like one. Ready to strike!
The interior art is just as well done as the cover. The details from panel to panel are well done, with the use of lighting, shadows and gradients becoming a big part of the imagery. The emotions on the faces of the characters, as well as their mannerisms are evident as the story goes on. Bring the story that is being told to life visually.
The story itself is a good story, a kid who has been on the wrong side of the law, trying to turn himself around gets caught in some trouble, only to find out that the trouble was following him.
There are some other issues that the main character is dealing with, which I can relate to a little bit of. But over all the story is solid as the pain of teenage youth is the main focus. Which makes the story relatable to anyone who reads it. The twist in this story is that the main character “OH” has abilities.
I do like how the main character struggles just to keep his head above water and get back to life after being in Juvenile Detention.
It shows the possibility of growth and includes subject matter that is completely relatable. I think that if the story continues, it will gain an age appropriate audience that will definitely feel for the main character and the struggles that he is dealing with!
