For John Wharton discovering the island Mayda was to be his greatest triumph, but when he finds himself on its shores, not as explorer but as castaway, his greatest triumph may be just surviving the night. Wharton soon realizes, though, that surviving is easier said than done, as the island and its inhabitants are unlike anything he has ever seen. If he has any chance of returning home, he must unlock the secrets of Maydaâ€”secrets it doesn’t seem all that willing to give up. The key to its mysteries and to his own survival may lie in the hands of the only other â€œhumanâ€ on the island, a girl who seems to have a few secrets of her own.
I really enjoyed this comic – the art is of a pulp fiction feel, and the writing moves from one scene to the next quickly and with action. The dialog is brief, but gives us all we need to know. I’ve added this to my favourites, in the hope of seeing a resolution to the cliffhanger!
