This was an interesting way to present history and I hope the next issue focuses more on Echo herself.

This graphic novel exceeded my expectations. I thought the story was unique and very well done as the beginning of a series - it was not nearly long enough and I can't wait to read the next one!

So far this looks to be an excellent story with wonderful artistry that captures the struggle with Indigenous identity and history that many Indigenous people feel. The biggest complaint I have is that this first volume is too short since the story pulls you right in and leaves you wanting more....

The dialog was sparse but the story was well conveyed and Echo's struggle easy to see. An interesting way to present the Metis history of the Pemmican wars. It will be interesting to see how the story progresses in the next volume.
