This charming light fantasy from Kymera Press is just what you need to read right now in these stressful times. It has enough cuteness and sincerity to make anyone smile. There is some inconsistent artwork which confused me a bit. (The bracelet Kalsaru wears is broken in one scene, but then she has it on for the rest of the issue, but that’s a small quibble.) I enjoyed Anna’s character of a young woman who sees nothing bad in the world and seeks to bring joy to those around her. Mae and Robert are delightful foils and the kind of friends we all wished we had. The coloring and the art were spot on for this type of story and characters. Life is bright and filled with color in this world.
I hope at some point Kymera Press puts this together in a trade and continues on with the series. It is suitable for all ages.
