This graphic novel was highly recommended to me by a friend and I am so grateful to her.

The artwork in these comics was something else - just utterly spectacular. The saturated color took it to the next level and I really enjoyed the use of watercolors. 

I loved the premise of the series and how it was narrated in a very human, slice of life type way while still maintaining some fantasy elements. I also appreciated the emotional and thoughtful musings about mortality, living in the present, relationships (romantic, familial, and friendship), and grief.

The one criticism I have is that the main character felt a little flat at times. I found it difficult to fully connect with him.
