Comic Book Review: The Tiger’s Tongue #1
By Nolan P. Smith
Mad Cave Studios once again brings the world a comic of wonderment and action with The Tiger’s Tongue. A story of mysticism and destiny, the book takes you deep into a world you want to keep diving into.
From Olivia Stephens, Diansakhu Banton-Perry, Bex Glendining, and Joamette Gil, The Tiger’s Tongue is about a young warrior who saved a wounded tiger, with the tiger granting her and her village The Tiger’s Tongue- a way to communicate with the tiger. The warrior gave birth to twin girls, setting a prophecy in motion- the sisters are to go against each other in trials once they turn 18 to see who shall be the ruler of The Tiger’s People.
The story is vibrant and fresh, just what the comic book world needs. Kelindi and Aridani are very different, yet both have powers and strengths all their own. This is a tale of what we make of our destiny and how we handle what life throws our way. It is an enthralling tale told with outstanding artwork and dialogue. The colors pop off the pages, giving a very animated feel to the book.
Mad Cave has an interesting story on its hands with The Tiger’s Tongue. It’s smart, refreshing, and a great addition to the already great library Mad Cave has amassed.
