Review: Artifact One #0
The first thing I would like to state about this prequel to the upcoming series, Artifact One, is that the artwork is phenomenal, character designs, city scapes and the fashion of this world is all off to a grand start. It takes you somewhere new but with enough familiarity to not alienate the reader. The usage of lightening & shadow to show the different outlook our protagonist Remi has compared to the people of her village is an act of artistic genius.
Introducing Remi, a young and energetic explorer and relic hunter, whose boundless curiosity leads to a startling discovery beyond anything she could have imagined!
Along with her alchemist father, Remi works in secret, away from the prying eyes of the ruling clerics who lord over the realms of her world with their ancient decrees and strict devotion. Remi has her own sense of dedication – Her heart to adventure and her mind to the truth. But, what happens when that truth could change the fate of her entire planet, and destroy the very fabric of her civilization?
The story (though only a slight inclination of what will eventually happen in this series) seems to be the heroes journey in a land of religious oppression Vs those looking for more scientific (with perhaps magic properties) answers to the world they live in. Alchemy against the Inquisition.
I am quite excited to see where this story will go.
