Review: The Last Muskateer (2008)

I can't describe why this book works - it just does. There is whimsy, there's swashbuckling, aliens, robots... and romance. And it works. The illustrations are both sparse and telling - there is meaning behind every blank stare (of which there are many). The characters introduce themselves and quickly fight effortlessly for the spotlight of your attention... I dunno, having trouble here. But I highly recommend it.
