HINGES is a fantasy webcomic, turned graphic novel, about a doll named Orio and her troubling companion Bauble. New to the city of Cobble, Orio must depend on help where ever she can find it, but her assigned familiar Bauble has other interests. And as the two explore the walls of their city, they find that they are not the only new arrivals. In a place that runs like clockwork, it only takes a little disruption to upend a city.

I really enjoyed Hinges!! The artwork was simple yet absolutely beautiful! Very similar neutral tones are used all throughout Hinges that I felt just worked perfectly with the plot and lack of dialogue. Some might complain that there wasn’t enough actual dialogue but I feel like that added to the overall story.

Orio is so shy and timid and overwhelmed by her surroundings and the world she’s been thrown into. Now, Bauble…opposites attract, right? I feel like because Bauble is so different from Orio, they’ll develop a strong bond, or at least I hope they will!

I don’t want to think the worst of him…it is a him right? Anyways, but I have a feeling he’s up to no good. I mean look at that face!

Dear Meredith McClaren, when can we expect book2?! I just can’t wait to get my hands on it!! I hope as readers we get to learn more about the necklace, I’m also really curious to know what Bauble is up to. I can’t even imagine what’s next in store for Orion and Bauble in Cobble City :).
