Fire Messenger is the story of children who have magical powers, and the adults who wish to exploit them for their own purposes! Aiden can manipulate fire, Nik can cause people to freeze with the playing of his flute, Clara can levitate objects with her mind. But what are the true motives of their intimidating “teacher,” Mr. Zachariah?
In Fire Messenger, many mysteries present themselves, but so do the kids’ strong personalities. Penina’s storytelling weaves effortlessly between playful, pensive, and heart-racing moments. The comic is also drawn with a very simple playful line, that is embellished with subtle and beautiful watercolor throughout.
