Она стоит перед зеркалом. Долго смотрит на свое отражение, потом ядовито скалится и бьет его кулаком наотмашь. Стекла звонко осыпаются на пол, а она без какого-либо выражения смотрит на то, как кровь медленно проступает через многочисленные порезы.

I thought this comic was going in one direction and I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but by the end I was happy with what happened.

I like the way the story unfolded, with it going backward to go forward, and I think the art was extremely well done. It also had a great mystical element that was worked in smoothly, and developed strongly.
