Damn. Many people say they cried when they read this, which makes sense, its extremely tragic. I didnt cry, but I did enjoy the story. It has no words and is extremely detailed and beautiful in its art despite the lack of mid-tones. Its a good story to look at if you are in the mood for a quick slap in the face tradgedy.
The art definitely got across what was going on. But I will say that at times it felt cluttered and overly artistic in its presentation, which made me have to pull away from my reading of the story and stare at the page a bit to try to make sure I was getting all the information it was trying to evoke. I got the impression that the author was more concerned with playing around with techniques and stuff than making sure the readers would be able to easily follow the action. I don't know what fairy tale this is based on, but it certainly does have that sort of moral lesson and karma feeling to it alongside the tragedy that quite a few fairy tales have.
