This candy-colored, visual feast of a book is an exploration of prophetic dreams, personal and cultural mythology, and blind ambition in relation to individualistic and communal philosophies. Ultimately, these polarized mindsets manifest their flaws when brought to their extremes, and the major characters in the book are dragged and pulled about by their stubborn ideologies. Along the way, the story finds function in youth as a clumsy challenge to authority and a naive catalyst of change, while cryptic angels silently steer the fate of all below.
