    Amazing Mystery/Noir with Fantastic Artwork

    Review by Chris for Book Sake
    This is amazing. If you love mystery or noir, this is the book for you. Both the art and the writing are spot on. The art pulls you in and then the story just won’t let you go. I felt like I was watching a movie. This has to be one of the most impressive graphic novels I’ve read. If you don’t like this book, then you will never like any comics.

    Don’t let the art fool you. Yes, I know it looks like a Disney movie. Maybe bringing memories of Disney’s Robin Hood to mind, but this book is not for kids. Yes, the characters are talking animals but they aren’t singing and dancing. This is a straight up, gritty, noir, detective story. There is murder, hate crimes, sex, knife fights, shootouts and anything else you’d want from the genre. So incase I wasn’t clear, yes read this book, then show it to your friends. Just keep it away from the little eyes.

    Review by Jessica for Book Sake
    This is the kind of graphic novel story I like. I'm not big into superheroes and I love a good story. This was a little weird, pretty dark and mysterious, and filled with conflicting emotions. While it does have some sex and violence to it, it isn't misplaced or gratuitous. It's still not for kids though.

    The art was awesome, and I agree with Chris about the Robin Hood look as well - but even darker. Animals with human-like qualities are the main characters and racism is written into the book in a pretty clever way. I'll be reading the next one to continue adoring the story and the artwork.
