Review: Blue in Green

Written by Ram V
Art by Anand Rk
Colors by John Pearson
Letters by Aditya Bidikar
Design by Tom Mueller

The dark and haunting portrayal of a young musician’s pursuit of creative genius—the monstrous nature of which threatens to consume him as it did his predecessor half a century ago. From creators RAM V (Grafity’s Wall, These Savage Shores) and ANAND RK (Grafity’s Wall), BLUE IN GREEN is an exploration of ambitions, expectations, and the horrific depths of their spiraling pursuit.

I’m so glad I was able to read this story from start to finish as a trade, so I didn’t have to wait to see what would happen next.

Blue in Green is haunting, elegantly written, and an easy page turner. You’re compelled to see how much a man would give and how far he’d go to finally have the musical career he’d always longed for. But at what cost?

Exploring the past while trying to navigate his future, we witness not only the outcome of his own choices, but of others as well, and the implications it held for their lives.

Beyond how beautifully it’s written, the artwork itself is breathtaking. Anand Rk and John Pearson together give us gorgeous pages that you can’t help but admire. They’re stunning, and at times haunting and unsettling, but fit so beautifully with this story. The creativity in the lettering, by Aditya Bidikar, is also fantastic.

Grab the trade today, and read it as soon as you can. If you’re going to be inside and cozy on Halloween, make yourself a nice warm beverage, curl up in your favorite blanket, and enjoy.
