Acheron was not like any of the other Da’kor. He was shy, quiet and rather childish but when he meets a young girl that he likes, he wants to do anything for her. To bad she is an elf and can never see him as anything more then a Da’kor. Even though he isn’t seen that highly, he goes on the quest to find the elf girl’s old friend and soon finds himself in more then he bargained for.
My Thoughts: First off, this is not a normal comic. It’s a webcomic that has been made into a really awesome comic book. As such, the link for this really good comic is http://inverloch.seraph-inn.com/index.html. Thank you.
This was one of those comics that seemed to grab me a bit, making me want to read more as the fantasy based story got deeper and deeper. I won’t lie, the story was pretty stiff at first with how it tried to give us information about the characters, introduce them and give them a little bit more of a soul but as the story went on, she did a rather good job in fixing that feeling so it was a bit more fluid. We follow a young Da’kor (like a mix of a devil and a wolf in looks) named Acheron. Unlike other Da’kor, he is a bit more tempered, a soft spoken character who is considered a slight outcast in his own home. After he meets a very special elf girl, he seems to fall for her and wants to do anything in his power to help her. It’s like a Romeo and Juliet tale as the Da’kor and the Elf race don’t see on the same level. I was surprised when they had us follow a Da’kor instead of an elf. It would have been a normal thing for her to just set it as an elf and fall in the same aspect as most other manga. To have her own creatures (at least I think own creatures) as a main character, that feels like a risk.
Not to spoil anything but it feels like the manga has a lot that involves hair. Somewhat slightly obsessed I guess in that little detail but that’s only a little bit of it. They also don’t really end the series exactly, sort of keeping it open for a sequel. It’s a sequel I have not yet seen her make.
The artwork may be simple and sometimes the characters are slightly off in some panels but the coloring and beauty she put into the manga is amazing. She also grows with her story, getting better and better as the story goes on. I think this was one of her first comics she made and so she had a lot to improve on her already nice design. Things that seem a little cliche aren’t that bad too in both how they talk and how the artwork is designed. I love how the Da’kor are designed with them being close to fawns I think. The two legged goat men in Greek myths.
