Illustrated by Eduardo Ferigato
In this story, we follow Amala, a warrior of the Kingdom of Arcadia. She joins forces with hero Brycemere to take out the big bad. But, Amala has a mind of her own and that's NOT a good thing. As it turns out, he's a player, and she's an NPC, and she fights against the player character no matter how many times he reloads from the save point. Amala's creator, Rebecca, tries to fix Amala, but for better or worse, Rebecca put too much of her own self into the character, and thus accidentally created A.I. Amala transcends to different levels of existence in a sort of Steven Spielberg's A. I. type-feel.
There are some major plot jumps in this story, like where Amala found her Portuguese friend and what the heck he's doing. He's a plot device to get her to the next level of existence for which I would have liked more explanation. The overall pace of the volume was super fast, but that might be owed to limit of 6 volumes to tell the entire story. The ending is a slight cliff-hanger, but could also be shrugged off as a glimpse for readers. The art is absolutely beautiful throughout and the coloring is perfect for the sci-fi world Groom created.
Image rates this Mature, but this might be overselling it. There is some cussing with a few F-bombs, and violence.
