'Motro Vol. 1' by Ulises Farinas, Erick Freitas and Ryan Hill is the kind of book I finish and wonder what I just read. In this case, I enjoyed the strange journey.
This volume has three stories in the life of a strange man with superhuman strength named Motro. In the first, he is a young boy looking for his father. He is mocked and bullied to the point where he uses his strength to gruesome effect. Then he fights a prince and becomes a favorite son of a ruler.
It's a world of strange inventions. A mirror that shows the future, ice dragons, and tanks that seem to speak with emojis. The art is worth the journey. This is a world filled with strange characters that have a roundness to them. The lettering is even different. I liked what I read.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Oni Press, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
