Reviewed by Weird – Buttercup: Remembrance
Back in May, my little town finally had a nerdy convention called Idaho Falls Retro X. It was the very first one of its kind for this area, and it was so great. As I made my way around the convention floor, I found all sorts of incredible things! They had toys from my childhood, games of all kinds, cosplayers, and comic books! One comic table, in particular, caught my attention, and that was the table for Kirin Comics.
Kirin Comics is a small indie publisher of comics, manga, and webtoons. And at this particular con, they had issues of their comic Buttercup: Remembrance. Here’s a brief summary:
“Earth has been destroyed. Humanity is no more. Relics of the destroyed world are all that’s left in the wake of humanity’s extinction. These relics are held at a high value, especially by those who worshiped and revered humanity.
Buttercup of the Plague has been sent by her kind to find and retrieve these holy relics wherever they can be found. Her journey to find Earth relics changes drastically when she discovers a hidden secret. This hidden secret may not only redeem Buttercup’s people for their failure to protect the humans but may also redeem Buttercup herself.”
McKay Wadsworth, writer for Kirin Comics is an incredible salesman, but that’s easy to do with such an incredible book! This first issue not only did a good job of grabbing you and bringing you in, but it also keeps you there until the very end! The art is breathtaking, and the story is so full of emotion. I’m very much looking forward to seeing how the rest of this story plays out!
