Comic Book Review: Ursa Minor

Oh, Ursa Minor, how much you surprised me. Seriously, when I first heard of you, I didn't think you would begin to capture my attention or my imagination. I never thought I'd love you. I agreed to look at you because of Ian's talent. Imagine my surprise when you hit my inbox and I got lost in your colors and your lines and your story.

Your story of a world where werewolves kill the president and vampires step in to help humanity was one I sighed at. I, like so many others, am tired of the vampires. You, however, are not about vampires. You are about one girl who tries to save us all from them.

Your pages are filled with the amazing artwork of Ian Snyder, the lines inked in by Merbitt and amazing colors and textures that were added by Luis Guerrero. They are a team to be reckoned with and without them, this book wouldn't come close to being what it is.

This says nothing for your story. The story being told by Tom Hutchinson. The man knows how to tell a story. He knows how to pull me in with just the right words placed on a page. With barely an effort, he has drawn me in and I eagerly flip the pages to find out what words he will whisper my way next. When I reach the end, I whimper, wanting more, eager for the next time that his words will caress their way across my brain.

Sadly, I must wait for the time hasn't come for more to be revealed to me. While you must also wait, you can pre-order this book today. Use order code MAR120822 and reserve your copy of what is going to be one hell of a ride.
I received a smashing pdf copy of this book from the publisher, Big Dog Ink. They didn't tell me what to write. In fact, Ian attempted to tell me not to write about him at all. He's such a silly goose. All comments, thoughts and sexy words belong to me because I wrote them. Yep, me. Little 'ol comic book reviewer and wanna be writer, me. mwaahahahahaha. PS Nobody paid me to write this review or this really weird disclaimer. I do wish they would though. That would be heroically awesome. Thank you. PPS Don't forget to have your pets spayed or neutered.  PPSS Also, don't forget to tip your waiter..unless they don't deserve it, then don't. I think that's it...until next time....
