About BIRDKING Volume 2:
Bianca and Birdking continue their quest to reach Atlas, entering the domain of Hinnom, an insurmountable mountain range that is the birthplace of a dead dark empire and the battlefield in the war between the kingdoms of the North and South. Old friends, new allies, and scores of enemies await them there. No one has ever crossed Hinnom alive. But Bianca and Birdking might just make it. …Then again, maybe they won’t.

Onomatopoetic sound effects and rushing anime backgrounds make the battle
scenes sing, while the use of monochromatic backgrounds and vivid facial expressions make the quiet moments incredibly powerful. About as carefully paced and deftly balanced as a story can get.” —Booklist, starred review

CROM’s character designs are memorable, and he balances cartoony and artsy details with dramatic battle scene.” —Publisher’s Weekly
