James Robinson – Grand Passion | Review

grandpassion01-cov-a-cassaday-600x900Grand Passion by James Robinson is an action, romance graphic novel following the love-at-the-first-sight of Mabel and Mac. They were polar opposites at the beginning of the graphic novel – he a well-behaved cop and she a half of a thieving duet.

I was not impressed with this graphic novel. I find it quite shallow and not well performed. The illustrations are average at most, nothing special or breathtaking about those. The characters are quite one-sided and not at all branched out. We know nothing about the main characters besides their undying love for one another before they even meet each other and how tough they both are. Yuck. I want to know what drives them, what they think about in the shower when the most bizarre thoughts hit them. I want to know what made them as tough as they claim to be and what could break their facades.

We follow a story of Alana and Marko, who ought to have been enemies because of their races, but were pulled together by love. Together they have a daughter, Hazel, whom they will always fight to keep safe.
