Realm of the Blue Mist: A Graphic Novel (The Rema Chronicles #1) (Hardcover)
This graphic novel has some serious Ghibli vibes, and in all the best ways. A young, truth-seeking girl trying to get back home, an honest and no-nonsense hero with a heart of gold, and ferocious but virtuous friends that would abandon their way of life to stand up to wickedness and corruption.
This is a beautifully drawn story, the colored panels paint the world in such soft shining beauty! Over all a very wonderful read!
