Krugo (All reviews)
This is the tale of a boy scorned by nearly every living creature imaginable.

Story, 6: A grim start that permeates the rest of the title. While there are glimpses of hope, the story is generally bleak and not for the faint of heart.

Art, 7: There are some grotesque body horror pieces, particularly using insect imagery, so those are worthy of note. The gore pages were sufficient.

Characters, 5: A one-note cast with few redeemable qualities; even the protagonist doesn't seem to have much depth outside of the early pages.

Enjoyment, 5: It was a short, one volume read but I don't feel like it was particularly read more
