The art in this manga is very simple and sparse, reflecting nicely the harsh, desert way of life these characters lead. It isn't particularly beautiful and is awkwardly drawn at times. This manga's strength isn't it's art, but it's fascinating and gripping story. The plot sucks you in and doesn't let go. It is fast moving and a definite page-turner. The panel layout isn't fancy looking but pushes the reader onwards smoothly and simply, meaning you don't ever stop and struggle to figure out what panel comes next.
