Reviews

Michael Eh?

Qwan deals with Chinese mythology and demons and more particularly demon eaters. This is where Qwan, a seemly young boy who has pet flying pint-size pig with no head and 6 legs. He ends up with a human traveller, Chikei, who manages to get into and out of trouble after meeting this strange child.
Artwork is above grade with fair bit of plot and side story of political and religious intrigue. The scroll with the key to balancing power tips the balance of power itself and it becomes main plot as Qwan and others seek to use it to change existance itself.
Nice bit of storytelling with some truly bizarre creatures, demons and characters.
