“Blue is having a hard time moving on. He’s in love with his best friend. He’s also dead. Luckily, Hamal can see ghosts, leaving Blue free to haunt him to his heart’s content. But something eerie is happening in town, leaving the local afterlife unsettled, and when Blue realizes Hamal’s strange ability may be putting him in danger, Blue has to find a way to protect him, even if it means… leaving him.”
I got this book through the Amazon Vine program to review. This was a well done GLBT fantasy graphic novel about a young man, Hamal, who can speak to ghosts. Hamal finds out that his ability to speak to ghosts is more than just a quirk, it makes him special and it’s up to him to keep things in balance.
This is a sweet little graphic novel. The relationship between Blue and Hamal is tender and endearing (even if Blue is a ghost). I also loved the paranormal tone of the story; there are ghosts, Death, and necromancy in here and it is well done.
The illustration is well done and I enjoyed the bright pastel colors throughout.
Overall I was impressed with this graphic novel and hope we get to see more adventure involving Blue and Hamal. This is a sweet little story that has some neat fantasy elements to it and is very well drawn; I enjoyed it alot.
