Park your steel horse, grab a beer, and delve into a special preview issue of the BLACK DOG AND REBEL ROSE SERIES by international bestselling comics creator Dani Smith.
This comic contains adult themes including foul language, nudity, gore/violence, and sexual situations. Mature readers only.
Although this is a reasonably short book (159 kindle pages), I didn’t get into it as quickly as I expected to. Once I was able to put myself in the story, it was an easy enough read, but I felt that the story really struggled due to a lack of character development. This, in turn, led to a lack of connection between the characters and the story and me as a reader.
That, coupled with a lack of a real sense of threat meant that, for me at least, this was more of a surface read than an immersive reading experience.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
