Graphic Novel Review: The Avalon Chronicles Vol.1

When Aeslin Finn was a little girl, her parents read to her from a magical book called The Avalon Chronicles. But that was a long time ago. Now a teenager, Aeslin is about to discover just how magical she and that book really are. Transported to the world of Avalon, she discovers a kingdom in need of a Dragon Knight - and the last dragon, Blue Moon, is waiting for her

This is easily one of the most enjoyable graphic novels i've ever read (not that i have read that many but still...).

A combination of magic, dragons, realm traveling, adventure, romance,humor, fights, prophecies and really good sketches make the novel unique.  If i'm right, Once in a Blue Moon has been published before as a graphic novel but little differently. As far as i've seen, i like way more Emma Vieceli's art. Even though the galley was all black and white (i have no idea if the printed version is like it), the novel felt simply full of everything. It was actually like reading in color. Like when you read books, and the images in your head are better than any movie out there. It's exactly like that with Avalon Chronicles.

On the story the idea of traveling back and forth in the Avalon and in our world. Loved each one of the characters. The knights, the commander, the writer, the magician, Aeslin and her friend. They all feel so special and different. Like each one has a special part in this story, big or small.

The story can be at the same time serious and funny. I giggled a lot through it, that's for sure. And even though at times can be silly and too girly, i think that even the boys will like it. At the same time is original and something we've seen before and worked out good.

P.S: Awesome dragon is awesome!
