Comments: "Chapter One: Of Myth and Reality" On this Island there is a legend of Silkies. They are underwater creatures that you should be careful of according to the local legends.
A reporter is investigating the legend. The reporter ends up joining a hunt for the Silkie.
The story is accompanied by some well drawn scenes of the local and people. The story is filled with a lot of build up and suspense. The Silkie turns out to be more than just a legend.
"Chapter Two: Obsession" Barry the reporter is the main character. Heather a beautiful young woman plays a good part to as she helps Barry. The town is unsure what to do with the Silkie it has caught. Barry we see is thinking a lot about this Silkie.
Barry and Heather start working together and now they have a common goal.
The art really does bring this comic to life.
The Silkie this were-seal creature does not talk at first or do much. Having her do so creates a sense of mystery about her. Is she good or bad? Or just a creature of nature?
"Chapter Three: Storm Warning" Barry heads out on his own to find the Silkie. The water is choppy, a storm in brewing. Barry`s friendship towards the Silkie pays off for him. When she finds him at sea.
The Silkie is a thing of beauty. Her curves are well drawn. Plus she is fully nude but her long hair hides her sexual areas.
Barry while in the home of the Silkie learns of her nature. It is wonderful to see the story unfold. As you read more you are drawn more into the story.
"Chapter Four: Revelations" This chapter has Heather shown a lot more sexy in the art. Her concern for Barry is more noticable as well.
Barry continues to learn more about the Silkie. She seems so kind and sweet and caring.
"Chapter Five: Passions"The search for the Silkie goes on. Meanwhile Barry and the Silkie become very close.
Also Heather meets a man who washed up on shore with no memory. Whats his story?
Evans a vengeful hate filled man finds Barry and the Silkie. His reaction is not calm or nice. The Silkie is so peaceful she deserves to be left in peace.
"Chapter Six: What Price Vengeance?" Mr. Evans still wants revenge for the death of his son which he blames on the Silkie.
The artwork continues to be very detailed.
Things are building and moving faster. All the players are gathering. Things play out as they most often do when humans are involved, with violence.
Things do turn out ending as most endings do not entirely happy but not entirely sad.
The story keeps you focused on it and the art is a visual delight.
