The art is beyond phenomenal. Colored with what (from my amateur eyes) appears to be acryllic, the pages are absolutely stunning. The art is warm, and visually stimulating. Strutz does away with the concept of the “hard border” that is present in today’s comics. Instead, he opts for rough outlines with complimentary colors that blend the scenes together. Each character is so perfectly unique that, despite the lack of the hard border, even the most fantastical of creatures stand out from one another.
This concept excites me, and the book did not fail to live up to it. I can’t wait to see where this goes.
TL;DR: A unique concept from Firetower Studios, The Order of Dagonet does not fail to excite. Look out for it.
The Order of Dagonet is a collected edition, collecting issues 1-4 of* The Order of Dagonet. *It is written by Jeremy Whitley and drawn by Jason Strutz. Check it out online at Firetower Studios, or order it from Amazon.
