'Awake: Escape from Gremon' by Susan Beneville and Brian Hess is the second volume in the series and collects issues 5-8 of the series. I was not familiar with the series, but it's a pretty decent comic for younger readers.
In the previous stories, young Regin has healed the planet Gremon. The natural resources have healed, but not everyone is happy. The most unhappy is the ruler of the planet who was able to exploit the people due to the shortages of food and energy. Along for the ride are her brother, Picar, who seems to be a bit irresponsible. Initially, he is the target of the baron's wrath, but it's really Regin who wields the power.
There is good adventure, and some leassons to be learned along the way. The characters are humanoid and furry animal like creatures. I think middle grade readers would like this series. It was my introduction to the series and I can already think of a few young readers I would recommend it to.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Action Labs, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
