An armored giant and a helpless child. Together they cross an astonishing world brimming with beasts, bandits, and—deadliest by far—civilizations… If they stop walking, the earth itself forces them onwards. WHY? The child can’t ask. She and her guardian have no language, no memory, nothing—except each other.

Multiple-Eisner nominees SI SPURRIER (X-Men), MATÍAS BERGARA (Coda), and MATHEUS LOPES (Supergirl) present a watershed moment in modern comics: four double-length chapters of a bittersweet fantasy opus, completely text free.

Let’s take a walk.


How does a book work without any text I hear you ask? By the strength of the storyline, that’s how! I mean, it shouldn’t really work but it just does. Si Spurrier has brought us a fantasy tale that just captures the imagination and you feel yourself drawn to the characters of the giant and the child. This is a book that certainly made me sit up and take notice.


Given that there is no text in the book, you would think that the artwork would have to be amazing to carry the story forward. Well it is and it does. Matias Bergara really does excel with this work. You may find yourself like I did just marvelling at each panel. The level of detail is just sublime. Whether it be something as simple as a snow storm or an action sequence, Bergara’s artwork just leaves you in awe.


How can a book work without any text? By having a fascinating storyline and being visually captivating. It shouldn’t work but it does and it does it really well! Si Spurrier should be commended for the storytelling in this book and the artwork from Matias Bergara is simply stunning. I urge you to pick this book up if you get the chance. Image Comics really have another winner this series.
