Reviews

Fior is an incredible craftsman, and the handsome art in this volume makes it worthy of attention.
Sometimes, shorter works by such creators of accomplished longer pieces like are not as satisfying, but Fior does a beautiful, haunting job at allowing the same richness to lurk within these stories that are slight only in page count.
Blackbird Days is at the very least a showcase for Fior's incredible artistic and authorial versatility, but at its best is something altogether more.
