This story has a nice, simple fairy tale feel to it. The art is simple, often beautiful, yet sometimes feels woefully unpolished. This is unfortunate, as the art should be the main driving force behind a graphic novel; yet here the narrative reigns supreme but, although it is a great one, cannot quite make up for the uneven art.

Dragons have been extinct for two hundred years until one hatchling awakens to wreak havoc with the innocence of a predating animal. The healer’s daughter and her town of Meddlesome must work together to save themselves, but the hero brought from across the sea may be over his head. This is a morally complex tale – neither the dragon nor the townspeople are portrayed as evil. The art is sublime, especially in its colouring. As compelling as the story was, I lingered adoringly at every page. Appreciators of art and fairytales that subvert expectations should definitely pick this title up. (submitted by NE)

Nice art, but dull characters and a boring story.

Good illustrations although it seems more like a book for young elementary age children then a regular graphic novel.
