I'm fan of Richelle Mead. I love her Vampire Academy books. I've read the Dark Swan series, and I wasn't a fan of it. Still I wanted to try the comic, because I've grown up with them my entire life. I hoped that the comic could bring me to like the Dark Swan series.
Unfortunately that didn't happen. One of the worst things about the comic to me was the artwork. The artwork was to me poorly drawn, and not in a style I liked. To me if the artwork doesn't click with me I won't like the comic. It doesn't matter how good the story is if the artwork doesn't do it for me. It ruins the whole thing.
The story is extremely slow even for a comic. It did set up a lot of back story which is necessary. So hopefully when it's time for the next volume the pace will pick up. The characters in the comic are somewhat interesting, but we only get to spend a short amount of time with them. All in all on its own its a poor comic, but we'll have to see how the series itself measures up as it continues.
