In this wildly entertaining fantasy debut we meet Broxo, the only surviving member of a tribe of barbarians who once occupied a now-desolate mountain. All alone in the world, Broxo spends his time on the mountain hunting and avoiding the man-eating walking dead that periodically drag themselves out of a fetid lake.
Everything changes when Zora, a foreign princess, arrives on the mountain seeking Broxo’s lost tribe. Can the two young warriors together defeat the living dead?
With accessible and beautiful art, killer fight scenes, and a story that mixes humor, romance, and classic high fantasy, Broxo is a tale you’re sure to enjoy.
By the end, both characters and readers have had a workout; the latter will hope for more.
Giallongo keeps getting better at both the writing and the art, and I’m looking forward to seeing what he does next.
Broxo lives with Migo, some kind of wild animal companion. Migo is my favorite! He’s like a very aggressive and scary Winnie the Pooh.
