A wild, action-packed mystery-thriller that blends our world with the supernatural - shamans, demons, Triad and dragons.
Scroll-reading through Shaman by Highest S. Wave naturally feels like viewing an animated film. Each and every panel sequentially flows with darkly vivid artwork. Mix of gorgeous psychedelic colors produces a surreal experience that is truly unforgettable. The overall art-style complements the mysterious tone of this fascinating story of Shamans. Jowi, the main protagonist, is immediately introduced as an abnormal character with regenerative healing powers. Since the strangled death of his sister 10 years ago, he struggles with visions that forces him to relive the horrific tragedy. Jowi discovers new evidence that she may still be alive, and he is faced with many complex obstacles on his path to uncovering the truth. One of those obstacles is "Odd-Eye," a popular hallucinogen that gives unworldly powers. This drug is a McGuffin that persists throughout the story.
The overarching theme to keep in mind is the meaning of perfection versus imperfection. Some desire to become gods while others desire to become humans.
