Prevedibile, normale, noiosa. La vita di Abel a Farmington è così, ma lui ci è abituato. Fino al giorno in cui un tornado rade al suolo la tranquilla cittadina e se ne va, veloce come è arrivato. Ma quel tornado sta cercando Abel, e sa il suo nome. Scappare, il più lontano possibile, sembra la sola cosa sensata da fare, per il ragazzo. Lo sceneggiatore Skottie Young e il disegnatore Jorge Corona mandano Abel - e il suo impertinente amico, la Volpe - in un epico viaggio attraverso un mondo insolito e magico, per aiutarlo a sgombrare il futuro dal passato della sua famiglia.

He lives with Leggi tutto
A beautifully realised YA-ish story with fantasy elements about a kid who runs away from home and his abusive father. Normally a story like this wouldn't really be my thing, but Skottie Young's rock-solid writing and Jorge Corona's sublime artwork made all the difference.

It's modern urban fantasy (but not very fantasy). It's the YA story of a boy going on a journey (and perhaps too Y and not A enough).
