The Fall of Anterra by L.A. Franco is the other world story about the Anterrians--a world of bird people, who are the protectors of the Star Bands. These Star Bands are weapons used by the Paladins--chosen ones who are destined to save the universe. When the Bands begin to glow, the Anterrians know it is time to find the Paladins again so that they can receive the Bands and fight those threatening all living creatures. However, one Anterrian wants a Star Band for himself and will do anything to get one, even betray his entire world and people.

I have a long love of comics, especially when both the artwork and story are of equal quality. L.A. Franco's Fall of Anterra has beautiful artwork and the story is one that kept me wanting to find out more. The character design is fantastic (though heavy on the male side) and the colours are vibrant. As far as the story goes, it is filled with action and mystery. Both the artwork and story flow well from panel to panel and page to page. There is also consistency in design and colour palette. The script could use some minor punctuation help, but other than that, the dialogue is natural to the characters. If you like comics that are rich in design and filled with adventure, then I highly recommend checking out The Fall of Anterra. It is definitely a comic done with care and talent. I look forward to reading more.
