A very pleasant surprise considering the awful cover art of this graphic novel. In a fantastical world where tradition and religion dominate every aspect of life, Henni goes out on her own to ask questions and find her own way. A strong social commentary on religion, culture, women's roles, and more. A sophisticated and interesting graphic novel good for young adults. The artwork is odd and the characters while fantastical are very human-like which is kind of disturbing. Very much worth a read for those interested in breaking away from popular belief and asking questions of why our world operates in the ways it does. ( )

A fable for the 21st century

This story is about oppressive corrupt societies that repress their people through various means. Henni escapes from one only to find herself in another which is no better.

Told in a simple and even child-like manner, the story is effective, the artwork simple black and white drawings.

A cat-like girl named Henni lives in a society where a false religion and old tradition dominate everyone. With Henni's curiosity, as she grows up, she tends to question everything around her whether if it is right or wrong. And aparrently finds herself looking for answers.

I easily find myself liking Henni, for she is a very bold and witty character who didn't let her surrounding controls her life. And has a great determination in seeking the truth. The Disruptor is also a lovable character who owns a true heart of an artist. Because he never stops doing what he loves despite the fact that both of his eyes are removed and the city that continuously ruins all his works.

Miss Lasko-Gross addresses many issues in this story: the old traditions, religion, gender inequality, and the caste system-like society. Where Miss still able to carry out the issues cleverly till the end of the story. A simple story yet holds a strong message.

Henni ends in an abrupt way but I'd love to see if there's going to be a next installation. The story obviously targets the younger audiences but teenagers alike will also find this good. Recommended! ( )
