    it has been a while since i read a graphic novel that i just fell in love with. i really hope there are more issues of this soon court intrigue + assassination plots + tender romance between the king's illegitimate daughter and her bodyguard + adorable pet fox ...

    (Read as single issues.) 4.5 stars, happily rounded up. I think this is one of my favorite new titles, and am bummed that I have to wait until SEPTEMBER for more. For my money, this title should be getting readership that reaches "Saga" levels. This is a low-key, charming fan...

    WHAT THE FUCK ...

    Slightly slow but intriguing start to a gorgeous new fantasy series. I loved the character work, and the worldbuilding is really well-handled, deft, assured, and free of infodumps. Eager to see where it goes. ...

    Anfang der Woche habe ich an mehreren Abenden diese Graphic Novel gelesen. Und ich weiß immer noch nicht so recht, was ich davon halten soll. Wenn ich zu einer Entscheidung gekommen bin, gebe ich eine Bewertung ab und schreibe ein paar Sätze dazu. ...

    4.5 stars. A promising first volume with gorgeous art, complex political maneuvering, and well-realized characters. I can't wait to read the next chapters in this story. ...

    I?m swooning right now, kids. I?m having a hard time expressing myself beyond sighs, and I?m not sure how one spells a sigh. Is it just a bunch of h?s? Like Hhhhhhhhh? That doesn?t look right. I also don?t know how to spell the sound of falling over (I know you think I co...

    I NEED THE NEXT VOLUME. I NEED MORE POPPY AND CYRENIC IN MY LIFE. ...

    This just hit the spot for me. I loved the setting, the court intrigue, the fantastic elements, the effortless diversity, and especially the gorgeous art. ...

    I can't recommend these comics highly enough - I've followed them since last December. The art looks like something out of an Art Nouveau Tarot deck only more organic and kinetic, and I?m already completely in love with and rooting for the main characters of Poppy and Cyrenic. It?s...

    Great art but a cliche ridden story made for an aight read. World: The art is fantastic, it?s stylish and the characters are expressive and full of emotion. The link between the script and the art is done incredibly well with a lot of the unspoken words and emotions coming through...

    2 1/2 stars I need to preface this by saying I am quite new to the world of graphic novels, and as of yet, have only read a few. I really enjoyed Saga, and read this after it was recommended by the author of that. I love both romance and political intrigue, so I was pretty excited ...

    Sleepless was my kind of graphic novel - great characters, subtle storytelling, and a budding romance. Poppy is the illegitimate daughter of a recently deceased king and her position in the new king's court is fraught with tension. Protecting Poppy is her faithful, sleepless knight...

    AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH ...

    Oh, this was excellent. The best court intrigue fantasy I've read since the Goblin Emperor. Great characters, great art. ...

    Renaissance fantasy. Interesting world-building. Great and diverse characters (representation matters - and I look forward to learning more about them). Complicated court-politics. Magic. Danger. Love. This is fun! And that ending? How dare you?! Can't wait to read so much more! Sep...

    3.5 Stars Review: *I received an ecopy of this book via Edelweiss. This has not influenced my review.* This was a subdued, slow-paced, high fantasy graphic novel about a princess, her knight, and lots of royal court intrigue. Poppy is the illegitimate daughter of the king, but n...

    I am LOVING this. Magic, mystery, murder, a poc princess protagonist, a magical knight, forbidden romance, a possible true friendship between two women marginalised by their status and court politicking, and why, oh, why do I have to wait until SEPTEMBER for another issue. Sad face ...

    A royal daughter who can never quite be a princess, much less a queen, must manoeuvre through the arrival of a new regime at court. Someone wants her dead, but at her side - as well as an utterly adorable fennec fox-type creature - is her loyal bodyguard, one of the eponymous Sleepless...

    Ok but I don't get why he does not get sleep at all? How is he surviving? How is he still alert? Is it even humane? Does he take some kind of potion? Does he have some sort of powers? Why not have two knights and take turns sleeping while guarding the princess? Stick around to find ...

    I thought for sure this book would be for adolescent girls. Well maybe it was. But I?m a guy and I still thought it was excellent. Well done all around. 4 stars. I hope this book sticks around for a while! This is exactly the kind of book that doesn?t ever get its due and ends up...

    This starts to become more interesting than your standard courtly intrigue plot in the final quarter, but it's slow to pick up speed. I knew it was going to be next to impossible for a monthly title to live up to the stunning cover art. The line art in this is decent, but the color...

    I NEED THE NEXT VOLUME. I NEED MORE POPPY AND CYRENIC IN MY LIFE. ...

    This just hit the spot for me. I loved the setting, the court intrigue, the fantastic elements, the effortless diversity, and especially the gorgeous art. ...

    I can't recommend these comics highly enough - I've followed them since last December. The art looks like something out of an Art Nouveau Tarot deck only more organic and kinetic, and I?m already completely in love with and rooting for the main characters of Poppy and Cyrenic. It?s...

    Great art but a cliche ridden story made for an aight read. World: The art is fantastic, it?s stylish and the characters are expressive and full of emotion. The link between the script and the art is done incredibly well with a lot of the unspoken words and emotions coming through...

    2 1/2 stars I need to preface this by saying I am quite new to the world of graphic novels, and as of yet, have only read a few. I really enjoyed Saga, and read this after it was recommended by the author of that. I love both romance and political intrigue, so I was pretty excited ...

    Sleepless was my kind of graphic novel - great characters, subtle storytelling, and a budding romance. Poppy is the illegitimate daughter of a recently deceased king and her position in the new king's court is fraught with tension. Protecting Poppy is her faithful, sleepless knight...

    AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH ...

    Oh, this was excellent. The best court intrigue fantasy I've read since the Goblin Emperor. Great characters, great art. ...

    Wonderful art and interesting story. That cliffhanger at the end made me so angry and I can't wait till September ...

    Yeah, okay, this comic is perfect. I am absolutely not a medieval fantasy person (or so I keep telling myself) but this had me hooked from the get-go-- lush worldbuilding, gorgeous characters, actual casual diversity... and none of that is even getting started on the fantastic art. I g...

    Renaissance fantasy. Interesting world-building. Great and diverse characters (representation matters - and I look forward to learning more about them). Complicated court-politics. Magic. Danger. Love. This is fun! And that ending? How dare you?! Can't wait to read so much more! Sep...

    3.5 Stars Review: *I received an ecopy of this book via Edelweiss. This has not influenced my review.* This was a subdued, slow-paced, high fantasy graphic novel about a princess, her knight, and lots of royal court intrigue. Poppy is the illegitimate daughter of the king, but n...

    I am LOVING this. Magic, mystery, murder, a poc princess protagonist, a magical knight, forbidden romance, a possible true friendship between two women marginalised by their status and court politicking, and why, oh, why do I have to wait until SEPTEMBER for another issue. Sad face ...

    A royal daughter who can never quite be a princess, much less a queen, must manoeuvre through the arrival of a new regime at court. Someone wants her dead, but at her side - as well as an utterly adorable fennec fox-type creature - is her loyal bodyguard, one of the eponymous Sleepless...

    Ok but I don't get why he does not get sleep at all? How is he surviving? How is he still alert? Is it even humane? Does he take some kind of potion? Does he have some sort of powers? Why not have two knights and take turns sleeping while guarding the princess? Stick around to find ...

    I thought for sure this book would be for adolescent girls. Well maybe it was. But I?m a guy and I still thought it was excellent. Well done all around. 4 stars. I hope this book sticks around for a while! This is exactly the kind of book that doesn?t ever get its due and ends up...

    This starts to become more interesting than your standard courtly intrigue plot in the final quarter, but it's slow to pick up speed. I knew it was going to be next to impossible for a monthly title to live up to the stunning cover art. The line art in this is decent, but the color...

    THAT ENDING!!! thank god the next issue comes out next month and thank god i found out about this comic because it literally has everything i love. a fantasy comic with beautiful artwork and characters, plus the bodyguard/personal guard and princess romance trope. ...

    I?m so excited for more of this story. Way to leave us on a cliffhanger ending! The setting is LUSH and all the details are complex and diverse. Poppy is SO beautiful and really intriguing. I need more Poppy and Cyrenic already. ...

    I?m loved EVERY SECND of this. The art, the story?it?s all quite magical. Can?t wait for the next issue! And this is going to singlehandedly get me back into comics. ...

    I need moreeeeee. ...

    WHAT THE FUCK ...

    Slightly slow but intriguing start to a gorgeous new fantasy series. I loved the character work, and the worldbuilding is really well-handled, deft, assured, and free of infodumps. Eager to see where it goes. ...

    Anfang der Woche habe ich an mehreren Abenden diese Graphic Novel gelesen. Und ich weiß immer noch nicht so recht, was ich davon halten soll. Wenn ich zu einer Entscheidung gekommen bin, gebe ich eine Bewertung ab und schreibe ein paar Sätze dazu. ...

    4.5 stars. A promising first volume with gorgeous art, complex political maneuvering, and well-realized characters. I can't wait to read the next chapters in this story. ...

    I?m swooning right now, kids. I?m having a hard time expressing myself beyond sighs, and I?m not sure how one spells a sigh. Is it just a bunch of h?s? Like Hhhhhhhhh? That doesn?t look right. I also don?t know how to spell the sound of falling over (I know you think I co...

    I NEED THE NEXT VOLUME. I NEED MORE POPPY AND CYRENIC IN MY LIFE. ...

    This just hit the spot for me. I loved the setting, the court intrigue, the fantastic elements, the effortless diversity, and especially the gorgeous art. ...

    I can't recommend these comics highly enough - I've followed them since last December. The art looks like something out of an Art Nouveau Tarot deck only more organic and kinetic, and I?m already completely in love with and rooting for the main characters of Poppy and Cyrenic. It?s...

    Great art but a cliche ridden story made for an aight read. World: The art is fantastic, it?s stylish and the characters are expressive and full of emotion. The link between the script and the art is done incredibly well with a lot of the unspoken words and emotions coming through...

    2 1/2 stars I need to preface this by saying I am quite new to the world of graphic novels, and as of yet, have only read a few. I really enjoyed Saga, and read this after it was recommended by the author of that. I love both romance and political intrigue, so I was pretty excited ...

    Sleepless was my kind of graphic novel - great characters, subtle storytelling, and a budding romance. Poppy is the illegitimate daughter of a recently deceased king and her position in the new king's court is fraught with tension. Protecting Poppy is her faithful, sleepless knight...

    AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH ...

    Oh, this was excellent. The best court intrigue fantasy I've read since the Goblin Emperor. Great characters, great art. ...

    Wonderful art and interesting story. That cliffhanger at the end made me so angry and I can't wait till September ...

    Yeah, okay, this comic is perfect. I am absolutely not a medieval fantasy person (or so I keep telling myself) but this had me hooked from the get-go-- lush worldbuilding, gorgeous characters, actual casual diversity... and none of that is even getting started on the fantastic art. I g...

    Renaissance fantasy. Interesting world-building. Great and diverse characters (representation matters - and I look forward to learning more about them). Complicated court-politics. Magic. Danger. Love. This is fun! And that ending? How dare you?! Can't wait to read so much more! Sep...

    3.5 Stars Review: *I received an ecopy of this book via Edelweiss. This has not influenced my review.* This was a subdued, slow-paced, high fantasy graphic novel about a princess, her knight, and lots of royal court intrigue. Poppy is the illegitimate daughter of the king, but n...

    I am LOVING this. Magic, mystery, murder, a poc princess protagonist, a magical knight, forbidden romance, a possible true friendship between two women marginalised by their status and court politicking, and why, oh, why do I have to wait until SEPTEMBER for another issue. Sad face ...

    A royal daughter who can never quite be a princess, much less a queen, must manoeuvre through the arrival of a new regime at court. Someone wants her dead, but at her side - as well as an utterly adorable fennec fox-type creature - is her loyal bodyguard, one of the eponymous Sleepless...

    Ok but I don't get why he does not get sleep at all? How is he surviving? How is he still alert? Is it even humane? Does he take some kind of potion? Does he have some sort of powers? Why not have two knights and take turns sleeping while guarding the princess? Stick around to find ...

    I thought for sure this book would be for adolescent girls. Well maybe it was. But I?m a guy and I still thought it was excellent. Well done all around. 4 stars. I hope this book sticks around for a while! This is exactly the kind of book that doesn?t ever get its due and ends up...

    This starts to become more interesting than your standard courtly intrigue plot in the final quarter, but it's slow to pick up speed. I knew it was going to be next to impossible for a monthly title to live up to the stunning cover art. The line art in this is decent, but the color...

    THAT ENDING!!! thank god the next issue comes out next month and thank god i found out about this comic because it literally has everything i love. a fantasy comic with beautiful artwork and characters, plus the bodyguard/personal guard and princess romance trope. ...

    Slightly slow but intriguing start to a gorgeous new fantasy series. I loved the character work, and the worldbuilding is really well-handled, deft, assured, and free of infodumps. Eager to see where it goes. ...

    Anfang der Woche habe ich an mehreren Abenden diese Graphic Novel gelesen. Und ich weiß immer noch nicht so recht, was ich davon halten soll. Wenn ich zu einer Entscheidung gekommen bin, gebe ich eine Bewertung ab und schreibe ein paar Sätze dazu. ...

    4.5 stars. A promising first volume with gorgeous art, complex political maneuvering, and well-realized characters. I can't wait to read the next chapters in this story. ...

    I?m swooning right now, kids. I?m having a hard time expressing myself beyond sighs, and I?m not sure how one spells a sigh. Is it just a bunch of h?s? Like Hhhhhhhhh? That doesn?t look right. I also don?t know how to spell the sound of falling over (I know you think I co...

    I NEED THE NEXT VOLUME. I NEED MORE POPPY AND CYRENIC IN MY LIFE. ...

    This just hit the spot for me. I loved the setting, the court intrigue, the fantastic elements, the effortless diversity, and especially the gorgeous art. ...

    I can't recommend these comics highly enough - I've followed them since last December. The art looks like something out of an Art Nouveau Tarot deck only more organic and kinetic, and I?m already completely in love with and rooting for the main characters of Poppy and Cyrenic. It?s...

    Great art but a cliche ridden story made for an aight read. World: The art is fantastic, it?s stylish and the characters are expressive and full of emotion. The link between the script and the art is done incredibly well with a lot of the unspoken words and emotions coming through...

    2 1/2 stars I need to preface this by saying I am quite new to the world of graphic novels, and as of yet, have only read a few. I really enjoyed Saga, and read this after it was recommended by the author of that. I love both romance and political intrigue, so I was pretty excited ...

    Sleepless was my kind of graphic novel - great characters, subtle storytelling, and a budding romance. Poppy is the illegitimate daughter of a recently deceased king and her position in the new king's court is fraught with tension. Protecting Poppy is her faithful, sleepless knight...

    AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH ...

    Oh, this was excellent. The best court intrigue fantasy I've read since the Goblin Emperor. Great characters, great art. ...

    Wonderful art and interesting story. That cliffhanger at the end made me so angry and I can't wait till September ...

    Yeah, okay, this comic is perfect. I am absolutely not a medieval fantasy person (or so I keep telling myself) but this had me hooked from the get-go-- lush worldbuilding, gorgeous characters, actual casual diversity... and none of that is even getting started on the fantastic art. I g...

    Renaissance fantasy. Interesting world-building. Great and diverse characters (representation matters - and I look forward to learning more about them). Complicated court-politics. Magic. Danger. Love. This is fun! And that ending? How dare you?! Can't wait to read so much more! Sep...

    My reaction when I first saw the cover of the graphic novel on my recommendation list. I was already clicking on it without even bother to look at genre type or reading the synopsis. LOL First let's just address the beauty of the art design here shall we. I love Poppy's ou...

    3.5 Stars Review: *I received an ecopy of this book via Edelweiss. This has not influenced my review.* This was a subdued, slow-paced, high fantasy graphic novel about a princess, her knight, and lots of royal court intrigue. Poppy is the illegitimate daughter of the king, but n...

    I am LOVING this. Magic, mystery, murder, a poc princess protagonist, a magical knight, forbidden romance, a possible true friendship between two women marginalised by their status and court politicking, and why, oh, why do I have to wait until SEPTEMBER for another issue. Sad face ...

    A royal daughter who can never quite be a princess, much less a queen, must manoeuvre through the arrival of a new regime at court. Someone wants her dead, but at her side - as well as an utterly adorable fennec fox-type creature - is her loyal bodyguard, one of the eponymous Sleepless...

    Ok but I don't get why he does not get sleep at all? How is he surviving? How is he still alert? Is it even humane? Does he take some kind of potion? Does he have some sort of powers? Why not have two knights and take turns sleeping while guarding the princess? Stick around to find ...

    I thought for sure this book would be for adolescent girls. Well maybe it was. But I?m a guy and I still thought it was excellent. Well done all around. 4 stars. I hope this book sticks around for a while! This is exactly the kind of book that doesn?t ever get its due and ends up...
