I Ching Dead Moon review by Benebell Wen
I love the I Ching Dead Moon Oracle deck by Luis Royo... As a collector's item, that is.
Royo's artwork in Dead Moon is what I'll describe as East Asian post-punk gothic rock that borrows imagery from Japanese samurai culture and imperial China, altogether with lots of blood, wild black hair, and intricate tattoos. And the consistent depiction of inclement weather in the backdrop.
In other words, awesome.
Sure, there's some hypersexualization and exotification of Asian women in there, but let's just agree that post-colonial social politics will be beyond the scope of this deck review.
