Although ‘daddy-issues’ might seem a very used concept, but trust me, the way ideas and emotions flow in this issue is something very fresh and unique. The focus however remains on Xavi and his inner demons but simultaneously, the surrounding events directly or indirectly related to him is also shown really well!
The pace is constant throughout the issue. There are no jumps. The plot unravels in a very smooth fashion. Little glimpses of past is shown in between the present without disturbing the flow of the story.
You will be hooked on to this issue until you are done with the very last page. The story is extremely gripping and will leave you wanting for more. The story does not get boring at any point of time whatsoever.
You will be left with content. And because the protagonist is a young adult with lots of issues, so many of the readers can very well relate to Xavi, which makes this issue even more enjoyable. The story is unforgettable, but the only disappointment is that it is far from over.

Although the overall design of the book is undoubtedly pretty good, but alas, that’s not the case with the lettering. The misalignment of the speech bubbles will often throw you off a bit. Because of this misplaced lettering, you’ll often find yourself confused deciding which speech bubble to read after which one. Apart from that repeated mistake, there’s nothing much to complain about.

Summary - Xavi Origins
Xavi Origins #1: The Struggle is a very underrated comic book. Dhaansu productions gave us a gem but unfortunately, it has failed to get much attention until now. The story was a very fresh and unique one, with a smooth pace and really good visuals. It definitely deserves more love and support.
