When you’re a kid, all you want to do is fit in. You want to enjoy life for all it is and all it can offer you. As older generations have called it, “smelling the flowers.” This is what usually steadies most children, it offers them structure.
When children realize what makes them unique is just as important it can be life-altering. As adults, we harness that energy to stand out. Where children can find it intimidating. In the debut issue of Endigo Society, one young girl finds her unique abilities to be the keys to the rest of her life.
We meet Odyssey Na’Dika, a young 16-year-old living in Decam City, and has a fairly normal existence at school with her friends, Fleur and Risan, outside of her abilities to hear and see supernatural aberrations. As some mysterious agency has caught wind of her presence and skills, leading them to send one of their best operatives to track Odyssey. We also meet Zarabi, her grandfather and Zabali, her little brother who runs a unique antiquities shop. By the issue’s end, the police are at their home, needing answers.
Overall, an intriguing debut issue that introduces a new of characters whose love for each other trumps everything. The story by Norwick Robinson is exciting. The art by Mikhail Sebastian is stunning. Altogether, a gripping story that is both relatable and moving.
