'The Little Red Fish #3' by James Moffitt and with art by Bizhan Khodabandeh is a series I've enjoyed from the beginning. I recommend it to anyone who likes a well told story done in an unusual way.
When I first started this series, I was told it was an allegory. That was less apparent early on, but it's very apparent now. The events of the last issue have left a power vacuum, and the fish need to act before the eels and herons press their advantage. When a new ruler rises, it will be interesting to see what happens next.
The art is just as stunning as it has been all along. The story feels a little blunter three issues in, but I think it needs to be to tell the tale it is telling. I am reading this issue by issue, and they are packing a lot into each page. I recommend this series to those interested in Middle Eastern history. It's got an interesting way of telling a story.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Rosarium Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
