    I want to talk more about how much I love this book but I don’t want to water down this review with a bunch of hollow adjectives and not seem authentic. Bottom line: Scurry is a must-read.

    The story was originally a web comic and on sale from the creator, but that was only a limited edition and has now sold out. Hopefully the re-release will mean more people will be able to experience the story.

    This is an epic achievement even for a major comics studio and to have it be the work of just the one person is something else. The creator said it was nearly five years work and it seems to be as big a journey that the characters in his own story go through themselves.

    The story itself does remind me of a fantasy epic crossed with something like Watership Down or Milo and Otis. Make no mistake there is animal death depicted in this story but it makes sense in relation to the world and the story that is being told. The characters themselves know it is a dangerous world they are living in and their lives are hard and short.

    The character designs are excellent and the animals each have their own personality but still look realistic enough. Having them look totally true to life would not really fit in with the story, it does help artistically that some things are stylised or they have their own characteristics that you can tell each of the animals apart. Even the “bad” characters of the cats and the wolves all have their own names although not referred to as such in the story.

    For me the highest compliment that I can give this is that I would consider buying the trade paperback myself after reading it. The only other title I have done that with so far is the Strange Dogs comic so far.
