my thoughts: I loved the concept of it. I liked the female empowerment, however I have the exact same problem with it as the wonderwoman movie. that the heroin doesnt look like the part they are standing for. here we have a woman who is a bought slave who turns on her master and kills her while she wants to get revenge on all the man because some of them are pigs and treated her poorly. she is a really rough patch and her slim body doenst look like the one who goes into the gladiator arena everyday to fight for her survival. also we only ever got to see our main guy be wounded and patched up and vulnerable and not her which is a bit disconnecting in my opinion. the end of the volume had a very confusing ending cut from one page of bliss to another of utter helplessness. its just weird and more so because theres no dialogue for that.
I gave it 3 out of 5 stars because the plot and the art was good.
