Daomu by Ken Chou

The story concept had a lot of potential and even the art was semi-good. What really killed this book for me was that the color scheme, I get that it takes place in a lot of caves / underground location, but you can't have a dark page and a fog shaded text box. The color scheme made reading the text very difficult to read, which detracted from the appeal of the story.

Now, I may be wrong and on print this looks a lot better, but on the digital ARC that was provided, I say needs improvement.

But as I said before the story concept if good, you get the supernatural action, with tomb robbing and because in all action anything, a rich white guy sitting in his tower office in New York. The ? ending was good, because it lets us know we can expect more and maybe have some questions answered; like say, who Knight.
