Lupina Book One: Wax by James Wright – Book Review

Thank you to Legendary Comics for the copy of this book in return for an honest review

Lupa witnesses her mother death during a brutal attack on their home town. Lupa is left alone until she is found by the she-wolf, Coras, and sets off on a journey.

There really isn’t a lot to say about this comic. The art style is very nice and the use of colour is beautiful. Beyond that there really isn’t much. It’s very short, just over 100 pages in this volume and it took me less than ten minutes to read it cover to cover. It didn’t grip me really at all, and I found myself reaching the end and thinking, is this it?

Other than the artwork there isn’t anything in this comic for me. It just wasn’t that interesting. I was invested up to Coras arriving and then nothing really seemed to happen between then and the end of the book, which makes up most of it. The first section of this book seemed interesting and then the pace was so quick I never really got a sense of what the story was actually about and it then it was over.

I won’t be reading book two of this series. The first one has nice artwork but little else. I didn’t care about any of it once I’d finished and I’ll probably forget all about before the end of the day.
