Orphan Blade by M. Nicholas Almand, Jake Myler (Illustrations)

This is a short, quick read. The art is very good, it's really impressive, however, the story left something to be desired.

The story follows an orphan boy that get's some of his fingers eaten off by a Kaiju [which is Japanese for strange monster], after that he is depressed. Eventually he finds a super-powered blade and all the troubles that go along with it.

The final conflict at the end of the story was so blah, maybe that's why it scored so low with me. We know nothing of the characters other than the right now; the only character we get some background on is Dr.Africa and he isn't really even present in the right now. If you enjoy nice art, check this one out.
