An all-new ongoing series from fan-favorite writer SAM HUMPHRIES (Harley Quinn, Nightwing) and red-hot artist JEN BARTEL! In this neo-noir fantasy, Nina Rodriguez is positive that a secret magic world ruled by ruthless cabals is hiding just beneath the veneer of Los Angeles. The problem: everyone thinks shes crazy. The bigger problem: she's not crazy she's right. Can she unravel the mystery before the Great Beast catches up with her?

2.5/5
Absolutely gorgeous artwork and an interesting plot, but I did not enjoy the writing. It felt elementary and all over the place, which made the story feel rushed and the MC super irritating. I‘m going to give the next volume a try and hope that the writing improves.

This was a superb graphic novel. The illustrations were amazing! Basically our young blackbird is raised where people are telling her magic isn't real, but she knows otherwise. She meets a lot of strange characters including finding out secrets about her family. All in all a great story and the ending left wide open for more volumes to come.
4 stars

I loved this! A hidden, magical Los Angeles, deep dark family secrets, magical turf wars...

Anyone know when the second volume is out!?

Meh. That's how I feel about the storyline and the characters. So underwhelming. Did I miss something?

But the artwork is gorgeous. That was my favorite piece. Stunning art.

This #graphicnovel went back and forth for me. At times I was like I don‘t want to continue, but in the end it got to be more interesting and I think I‘ll continue on with the series when there are more volumes out. Highlight of the whole thing though was the cat. I love a good cat in a book.

This was the first in a brand new series by Sam Humphries and Jen Bartel and it was absolutely BRILLIANT. first issues are hard because they involve a lot of set up--who are the characters? Where are we? Do we want to read more? This issue was haunting and beautiful and Bartel's art and the colors in these pages enhanced the story and the magical tone . I want more. Waiting is going to be tough. #comics
