Review: Archival Quality by Ivy Noelle Weir and Steenz

Archival Quality is a story about a young woman's quest to find her place in the world after a job loss, mental health issues, and many bouts of strange visions of a disturbed ghost whose body was sold in pieces for profit.

WHO WOULD ENJOY READING IT?
Fans of supernatural tales won't mind this one. There is a tiny plot in there about lesbians, though. Keep away if that rankles your chain.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT
I was initially concerned about the illustration style (I believe it looks crude) but was shown the error of my ways few pages down the line. The story is solid and dialogue is natural. The art style grew on me after a while and I came to appreciate its uniqueness. More importantly, this is a story that explores the realities of mental health issues in a way that isn't wishy-washy, neither does it offer any quick fix for it.

MEMORABLE PASSAGE
