Aquicorn Cove by Katie O’Neill

Release Date: October 16th

4/5 Stars

Aquicorn Cove is a whimsical fantasy short graphic novel with a great and relevant message about the sea and protecting the environment and it also deals with grief from losing a loved one and finding the strength to move on.

One of the main messages this story focuses on is protecting our seas and environment and really looking at ourselves and how we often harm those things even if we can’t see or completely understand it.

The main character, Lana having recently lost her mother and doesn’t love her new home in the city and misses her hometown on the island with her Aunt Mae. The portrayal of grief and depression is very subtle and nuanced here and I appreciated seeing that.

There’s a F/F romance between two characters here and its so heartwarming to see. There’s some conflict but they eventually solve their problems together and love prevails!

Overall, I highly recommend this, for the whimsical art and the important messages that this story gives. I also recommend this for fans of Ponyo, because I got so many Ponyo vibes from this story!!

Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a digital review copy in exchange for an honest review
