Okko: The Cycle of Air #3

by Hub with Emmanuel Michalak

I never understand how books that have been published before in another country can run so late, but I am always happy to see a new issue of Okko, the French comic set in Medieval Japan.

This issue deals with the consequences of the last, which had Okko apparently slain by a Medieval cyborg monster-killer, who had been searching for his Okko's friend.  Now Okko's companions are in a state of disarray, and the drunken monk's attempt to exact revenge is ill-conceived.

The story in this series can get a little convoluted, but the appeal of the title is the wonderfully detailed art of Hub.  His depictions of the Valley of the Winds are gorgeous, and the book is lushly coloured by him and Li.

I hope that the conclusion to the cycle comes quickly.
