This is my first graphic novel and I wasn't sure about it but I really enjoyed it. The artwork is beautiful. This is a library book and I might wait to return it just so I can look at it again. Looking forward to getting the next volume. ( )

Gorgeous art. Seriously, the art is absolutely stunning. The story, though a bit strange, was compelling. I'm looking forward to the second volume. ( )

I'd heard good things but found this overly busy and hard to navigate. Chock full of bonkers with a complicated world that is steampunky with ghosts and gods and magic and a whole mess of talking cats. I found it difficult to like. ( )

The artwork is beautiful; however, the story is just not for me. ( )

I don't have words to describe how much I love this series. So rich in detail, art, and story. The world-building is incredible. The cast is dense and diverse. The plots are so meticulously woven together. There's a lot of exposition, but it's very much worth it. ( )
