    This was an interesting way to present history and I hope the next issue focuses more on Echo herself....

    One of the most frustrating trends with graphic novels lately is how many of them, particularly those aimed at youth, are so short that they can't deliver a satisfying story.

(The Métis of Canada are of mixed First Nations and European ancestry.) Echo is in foster care as her mother is in au specified care f...

    The artwork is absolutely beautiful (especially the vibrant colours). I love seeing schools teaching Canadian history and acknowledging everything done to Metis but also looking at the loss of identity a lot of ppl have after Residential Schools, multigenerational trauma and The 60s Scoop....
