A story of tragedy and beauty, Will I See illuminates the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women. 

I am a really big fan of comic books so when I saw this one on Netgalley I requested it since it looked interesting enough.

But unfortunately I did not like it at all. There did not seem to be a story line at all in this comic. It was just about a girl who found random stuff on the ground and collects it and that has a grandmother who always warns her that girls should be afraid when they are outside alone. I really did not see the point of this whole comic. There was hardly any conversation and the scenes seemed to jump from one point to another. So this whole comic just did not make much sense to me.

Conclusion, this comic really was not my thing and it was only because it was so short that I even finished it.
