SPOILER FREE REVIEW
Thank you Papercutz for the copy via NetGalley.
This Graphic Novel is fun, easy to read, and has a good sense of humor.
It starts with the murder of Maud’s father, a past revealed to her and thus she travels to live in Paris. Her huge crush on a bandit calling himself “The Fox” has lead her to a conclusion of becoming a bandit herself – Scarlet Rose.
Guilhem is quite cute but I can’t really tell of his age based on the drawings. Their facial expressions are right and I love how they change to impossible human faces to exaggerate an emotion.
I believe the english translations have just begun and I can’t wait to read the next installment. This is my first Graphic Novel series so I’m not very familiar with the slang. Is it called an ‘installment’, an ‘issue’?
