I received a email forwarded from a friend of a friend of a friend who published a graphic novel. Now i was a little hesitant to purchase since it was not main stream but after reading a little bit of the novel thru a online sneak peak and a way cool animation the guy created I decided to buy it. Now i have to say the art was different...it was not your standard marvel and dc but it worked, i really dug the art. It was kinda cartoony but i kind of got why he went for that look, it kinda buffered the impact of all the crazy things that happened in the book. The story was about this family that for the most part has been reborn thru out time to same mankind from this secret race that is bent on killing us. The way he weaves the story it really makes you empathize with the main characters and the fact that every time they are reborn they have no memory of there past but these creatures know about them and they are always gunning for them....its really sad but with that said he kinda throws this sick plot twist into the end of the book that leaves you wanting more.
I think more people should check out indie work...alot of good reads get passed up. the site is http://www.thechildrenofthephoenix.com
