Eugenie Markham never asked for any of this. Until now, she's been content with her job as a freelance shaman, battling and banishing Otherworldly creatures. When a prophecy suddenly makes her the Otherworld's most popular bachelorette, Eugenie finds herself fighting off unwanted supernatural suitors, as well as the evils that begin emerging from her past...

I was asked to review this comic by the publisher. Having only just gotten into graphic novels I thought I would give it a go. And I really enjoyed it. For such short installment its full of actions and thrills. 

I have never read Richelle Meads Dark Swan series. So I can't really judge on how the comic and novels compare. However, you don't need to read the novels to enjoy the comic. I was glued to it. The first installment follows Eugenie fight supernatural creatures, makes tough descisions on a mission that could be very dangerous and it sees her letting loose and having some fun sexy times.

Eugenie is kickass!! Seriously she is awesome, strong and funny I really like characters that have a lighter side and Eugenie does. Richelle Mead really knows how to create some kick ass female characters. Eugenie kind of reminds of a little of Rose from VA Series just because they are both strong females you can kick you arse without breaking into a sweat lol.

Apart from an action pack story line the comic itself is very attractive. I like that it was full of colour and that artwork is well just freaking amazing. You can see the emotions on the characters faces everything just flows wonderfully between the pictures and the text.

As mentioned at the start for a comic with only 36 pages its packed with action and gives you a great taster of whats to come. I now can't wait to read the next installement. If you like urban fantasy with an awesome story or if you just like Richelle Mead then pick this up. Right now there is three installements out fourth coming soon. And there is also the hardback that has all four in one book. So check it out. You won't be disappointed!!

  1. I haven't read her Dark Swan series either. Not going to lie I hadn't even heard of it. Sounds interesting though. This gives me hope for the graphic novel I purchased recently.

  2. I have read the first in the Dark Swan series and it is really good. She is an awesome character. I will have to read the graphic novels.

  3. I have only gotten into comics/graphic novels but I'm really enjoy them. Especially the comics as they are really quick fun reads.

  4. I have the novel for this but I haven't read it yet since I love Richelle Mead and have all 3 series. I need to try a graphic novel one day!!
