It brings us into this part of the world through the point of view of dynamic believable central characters (most are locals, one is a foreigner). And then all heck breaks loose! Aliens and genies battling it out with humans caught in the crossfire, it’s awesome. And the art is vibrant, captivating, and full of noise; it practically jumps off the page.
