Review by Hope.Sloper
The story shows promise, and there is serious opportunity for character development. There were moments of brilliancy that I enjoyed, but those were brief. The art in some panels is clear, while in others you can't make out what is really going on which is very off putting from the story. In the end, I didn’t feel like I needed or even had a strong desire to read volume 2.
Review by eenerd
I really liked the writing and the story here, but...the art was of the T&A variety that annoys me; plus it had this kind of hazy, incomplete quality that kind of drove me and my eyes nuts. I kept feeling like I was missing something in the action or the image, all in all a weird, annoying effect. The color work was fantastic.
Review by wyvernfriend
Many years in the future humanity has retreated under the water to shelter from the sun's radiation. Now the cities under the sea have lost their hope, but one of the probes they sent has returned and someone should go to see if it has answers or hope. Stel Caine goes, still mourning her lost husband and children, with her son, hoping that this will make a future she can be proud of.It's an interesting, bleak read, very french in styling and art-work. Not bad but not something that I'd look for again.
