We’re always on the lookout for new graphic novels in this household as Book Boy is a big fan. He also loves a good mystery adventure so ‘The Inkberg Enigma’ was perfect for him.
Miro and Zia both live in the same tiny fishing village nestled at the foot of an ancient castle. When the pair meet, they uncover a secret linked to an ill-fated 1930s expedition to the Antarctic. Naturally, the pair decide to investigate further despite being warned off by various members of the Aurora fishing community.
Strange tentacles wrapped around a fisherman, a suspicious mayor and a mysterious order add up a gripping adventure packed with intrigue.
I was in love with Miro after the first few pages where we found him selling artefacts from his father’s attic to find his rather serious book habit! His slightly cautious nature paired with Zia’s more adventurous streak balanced perfectly.
The slightly retro vibe reminded me a lot of Tintin’s fabulous adventures and is sure to appeal to fans old and new.
A perfect introduction to graphic novels for readers who enjoy stories about inquisitive tweens, local folklore and fantastical beasts! 9+
