Pros

-Cover 

 I have to say, the cover is pretty amazing, with an oil paint feel to it. It has a lot of ambience to it and really draws you in.

-Story

The story is about a magical forest inhabited by monsters, a boy and his tree, and a shapeshifter, a truley unique story! The narration adds a nice fairy tale feeling to it too. 

-Layout

A simple and clean verticle layout that makes reading easy and enjoyable.

-Characters

The characters are amazingly unique and full of personality. There's a nameless boy who lives with a tree named Poe and a shapeshifter named Tomo. The beginning also includes a french soldier who barely speaks english who becomes more important later on. The designs are also wonderful too. Tomo looks like a masquerade dancer and Poe appears nymph like.

-Humor

Tomo adds in humor nicely with his naive personality and the quirkiness of the whole story adds a sense of humor and lightheartedness. 

-Limited Coloring

Limited colors are used to make certain things pop, like the nameless boy's eyes and important scenes.

 

Cons

-Slight Sketchiness

 Sketchiness is part of the style, but sometimes it can feel like a panel has been rushed. This is very rare though and barely noticable.

-A few typos

 Actually, only one as I can recall. Pacient should be patient.

 

Overall rating A, an amazingly unique story with wonderful characters that's easy to follow and read.
