Review: Aquicorn Cove by Katie O'Neill

When Lana and her father return to their seaside hometown to help clear the debris of a storm, the last thing she expects is to discover a colony of Aquicorns—magical seahorse-like residents of the coral reef. As she explores the damaged town and the fabled undersea palace, Lana learns that while she cannot always count on adults to be the guardians she needs, she herself is capable of finding the strength to protect both the ocean, and her own happiness.

First of all, I want to thank Netgalley and the publishers for providing me with an e-arc of this comic in exchange for an honest review.

Aquicorn Cove is a fun comic about a little girl and magical sea horse-like creatures. I mainly picked this up because of the art and the ecological plot points.

I absolutely love the artwork and the colours, it's very cute and vibrant, and just for this reason alone I recommend this comic.

I did have a couple of issues with the plot of Aquicorn Cove. Although there are certain ecological elements explored, I was hoping that the comic would discuss more. For example, a point is made about the villagers and the damage of using plastic nets to fish and I thought the author could have expanded more on this as plastic in the ocean is a big problem. I really missed that here.

All in all, I really enjoyed Aquicorn Cove. It's a lot of fun and tries to address real ecological problems in a fantasy story. The art is stunning and cute but the plot itself is quite basic. I could have used a more developed story but this is probably difficult in this format. 4 stars!
