5 Star ARC Graphic Novel Review: Forged in Flame (Four Eyes, Vol. 1)

Author| Joe Kelly  Author| Max Fiumara  Rating| 5 Stars
Edition| eGalley courtesy of Netgalley  Release Date| July 21st, 2015

I received a copy of Four Eyes from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Four Eyes follows Enrico, an Italian boy growing up amidst America's Great Depression.  He loses his father in a tragic and mysterious accident which causes him to discover the underground world of Dragon fighting.  Thus begins his adventure.

I loved this story so much.  I wasn't really sure what it was going to be about when I started reading, though I had a feeling it was about dragons or dragon-like creatures.  The setting was a welcome surprise, and the way Enrico found his way around the city and into the Dragon fighting pits was fun to watch.  While I felt that the side characters could use a bit more fleshing out, I thought Enrico himself was rather well done and dynamic.  

The art was fantastic as well.  It helped enhance the story and was just beautiful in general.

I really recommend picking those up- you won't want to put it down.  To add it on goodreads click here.
