Review: Wolfsmund V 1 by Mitsuhisa Kuji

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I picked up Wolfsmund because I am having so much fun reading Vinland Saga and I thought I’d try another historical graphic novel series.  This one is set during the Middle Ages, at St. Gotthard Pass, which is located in the Swiss Alps.  Baliff Wolfram brutally exposes and executes those desperate enough to try to sneak into Italy through his barrier station.  He’s a sick SOB, too, taking pleasure in taunting his victims while savagely punishing them for their transgressions.  A rebellion is afoot, and the Austrians are ruthlessly responding to the unrest by killing entire clans if a rebel is discovered in their midst.  Ugh.

Even though Sebastian is star-struck by Abigail at first sight, he’s quite sure she’s never going to give him the time of day. But Abigail doesn’t see him as everyone else does; Sebastian treats her like a real person instead of a nouveau riche social climber, and he intrigues her. Unfortunately, her parents have other plans for her…
