Held captive by the leaders of a dangerous new movement, Neitya is forced to face a darker side of her abilities that threaten to tear her away from Fife, her only true friend.

“Verse is the sort of book you spend hours pouring over, even after the first read. Every single page is a visual delight – I lingered on every panel and relished every page-turn. Sam expertly crafts a sprawling world full of gripping characters and thrilling stakes that transported me to another dimension– it’s the kind of book I would have devoured as a teenager, and certainly still love now.” — Hannah Templer ― Artist – “Cosmoknights”

Guest Post:

List your favorite graphic novels or comics from when you were a child and talk about how you see them as an adult.

There are three mangas I always list when asked this because I think they all had a really big impact on the kind of stories I like to read and write (or at least aspire to). I read Full Metal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa and Trigun by Yasuhiro Nightow as a teen and the way characters were written really stuck with me. They are complex and their relationships with each other are complex as well. It felt like something I hadn’t seen in other novels I was reading at the time. GoGo Monster by Taiyō Matsumoto is the other graphic novel that I read a bit later on. It opened up the world of graphic novels to me and made me interested in them as an art form.
