This is the story of a shy man named Jonathan York who got lost in a creepy swamp. Here he is tested in different ways until he becomes stronger. I really liked the way the story is written and the art seems made for children, but that doesn’t mean adults can’t enjoy it as well.
Mr. York is firstly asked to tell a story by his landlort, but he can’t speak in front of an audience and doesn’t feel he has a worthy story to tell. Because he can’t narrate anything he needs to return into the devilish swamp once again.
His bad luck takes him to meet the band of thieves everyone is afraid of (the West Bleekport Gang) . They invite him to join to hunt for a treasure and force him to be swallowed by a monster to retrieve a lost key, then to enter a cave (where a giant reptile lives) and steal a chest.and finally he is sold to a hideous necromancer.
This was quite the adventure. I hope I find another one soon. 🙂
