The comic also boasts wonderful, engaging artwork, and the character designs and art are bold, colorful, and striking. This was purposely described by the creators as Native steampunk, and I appreciated how both Native and steampunk imagery wasn’t stereotyped. The layouts aren’t spilling over with a thousand gears and brass bits; there is a steampunk train that runs on water vapor (green and steamy!) and really interesting arrows they use. Additionally, the characters are dressed in understated but distinctive clothing that both emphasizes their heritage without succumbing to an overload of the “buckskin, beads, and feathers” trap.
"Sparsely told" sounds about right. Unfortunately, I don't consider that a compliment.
