Ahoy Captain Cats here and today I’m going to review a comic that went under the radar for many people myself included and that book is Sky doll: Sudra.
Sky doll series is an Italian comic book series that was created back in 2000 by Alessandro Barbucci and Barbara Canepa, and they have worked together on W.I.T.C.H and Monster Allergy. Unlike the other two works, Sky doll has a more adult style and sci-fi worlds, throw in religion and mass media into the mix you a fascinating series with themes that play a role to the series.
Sudra is like a stand-alone story where the main character, an android monster-girl named Noa who escape a fate worse than death on the planet Sudra. The art style and story have a 1970’s vibe to it and the how the way Noa, the supporting cast of characters, the world environment and it’s the theme is entirely different, fresh and I’m astonished how a lot of people, including myself missed out on this series over the years. I would recommend this for people who have read other series such as 2000 A.D, Heavy Metal, Appleseed or a massive fan of Katsuhiro Otomo artwork.
You can find Sky Doll: Sudar on Amazon for under $30 for the Deluxe Edition or the standard for under $15.
