The human race didn’t get a happily ever after.
After 300,000 years at the top of the food chain, it took only seven months for humanity to become an endangered species.
The Blight killed nearly everyone, and changed everything. As skyscrapers sprouted forests and wild animals took over the deserted streets, the planet’s new rulers emerged from their age-old hiding places: elves and trolls, faeries and fauns, centaurs and satyrs–all the forgotten races behind countless myths and legends returned to reclaim the world they had lost to mankind.
Now, in a tiny village tucked away in what was once Manhattan’s Central Park, two rebellious teenagers are about to discover the true nature of the world beyond their small island home–as well as the unseen menace that threatens both human and Hinterkind alike.
I originally picked this one up from the library for #ComicsFebruary but never to around to reading it, I didn’t want to return it without giving it a go however, and now we are in the midst of OuaT IX I had the perfect excuse to give it a go.
While I did enjoy this first volume, I do think it’s a case of the concept being stronger than the execution, the ideas are all there, but it never quite grabs it like you want it to. That said if I can pick up the second volume from the library, I will give it ago, because I would like to follow these characters for a little but more and I have heard, that it does get stronger in the second volume, which can only be a good thing, but I don’t think I’ll be investing money in to getting a copy :/
