DRC Review: The Blue Road: A Fable of Migration by Wayde Compton and April dela Noche Milne

Welcome to my first ever Edelweiss review!! Lmao, I cannot believe I finally got approved. And for 5 books at that!! My boyfriend is honestly my good luck charm because whenever we talk I happen to get approved lmao.

I am always so here for whimsical beautiful artwork and a story made up of prose so delicate and gentle, the pages literally come to life.

The Blue Road is the story of Lacuna, a lonely girl without family or history. She was born from a swamp and seeks life, people, and hope. She must travel a road that is dangerous and full of trials that she alone must endure.

This comic was beautiful! Right away I was in awe of the artwork. April dela Noche Milne did a fantastic job and Wayde Compton has a fairy way with words and prose. The story was riveting like a song.

This story echoes so much of the current state of the USA and you felt that honestly and truly. My only complaint if any was that this was way too short, but it hit its mark and left me happy and sad so I guess it really did accomplish its goal.

Thank you very much to Edelweiss and the publisher for this DRC. All opinions are my own.
