This would be a great example of why I adore :01. Wish I could say I had a hand in any of the design or progress of this book. Pedrosa's lines are so fluid and dynamic. This is a perfect example of a book that was meant to be b&w. Rather than the eye focusing on color instead it focuses on the movement and the flow of the panels. The story itself is incredible, both heart-breaking and I found myself laughing at parts as well (hic-uping angel of death, anyone, anyone?) Even the most minor of characters, a good example being the slave girl on the ship, are fully formed. You can see her train of thought in her eyes, she isn't merely there to be a victim or to be a symbol, her actions are guided by the complexity of a real person, not just a literary device. Cannot wait to see what Pedrosa does next.
