Zetari – Integral by Martin Lodewuk and John M. Burns (graphic novel review).

November 28, 2020 | By | Reply More

Remember when I reviewed The Book Palace’s special on the art of John M. Burns last month. Well, ‘Zetari’ is one of the books I found and picked up, knowing it would all be in German so unreadable. For once, though, all I can focus on is the art.

What I can determine is it was originally released as two 40 page books, with Zetari as the female protagonist, who amongst her fighting skills can’t keep her top fully on some of the time. It looks like its set amongst the Greek legends time period, more so as there is an encounter with Medusa in the second story.

Burns art is superb as ever, often detailed and story propelling, combining emotional pauses with battles. Probably all the right ingredients for a fantasy story. It beggars the question as to why it hasn’t been reprinted in English but the problems with finding the publishers might explain that.
