Better outing this time around Story was cohesive and gave some character back ground and development.
Edwin and Charles might be dead, but that doesn t stop them from being great detectives Branching out from Sandman Volume 4, the Dead Boy Detectives solve the mysteries of their past and the supernatural netherworld of the Netherlands.In Volume 2, Crystal Palace convinces Charles to seek out his half sister Clementine, a monk living in a windmill with her scientifically oriented daughter Miranda Charles learns that his father may have murdered his mother, a ballerina who fell to her death from t [...]
While not quite as disjointed as the first volume, this book does still suffer from a large number of story threads which are not juggled well it always feel like a lurch between the different character groups, and it makes the overall story feel a lot weaker than it actually is The concept of the Ghost snow is interesting, if not really explored, and the world of the Neitherlands shows a lot of promise, although it s barely explored here The story of Charles sister and the death of their mother [...]
There are those who would prefer Firefly to have lasted than one season I m not in that camp Sometimes, what makes a story great, is that it isn t contintually drawn out Toby Litt was hired to write a Sandman spinoff that was on going Instead, it was cancelled after 12 issues The result is amazing artwork geared toward grabbing in all the readers and storytelling that opens a lot of loose ends Thankfully, Litt is either a master at plotting or was given enough notice to tie up his loose threads [...]
I really enjoyed this installment even than the first volume The characters of the boys are endearing, as usual, and Crystal Palace returns to bring a solid female presence to the series This installment focuses on Charles, and his meeting his half sister, and learning about his family s past Crystal s history with Rosa and Hana is also further developed from volume one My favourite new characters in the series have to be the black and white naughty kittens The artwork is consistent and enjoya [...]
I found early parts of this book a bit befuddling, but I suspect that s because I don t remember enough about volume 1 Despite that, I increasingly came to love the mythology that Litt was spinning here, and all of his many many characters I also loved the personal importance of the mysteries here This was a fun book, peopled by interesting characters, and I m sorry to see it now gone.
I really enjoyed this series, too bad it didn t last Basically it s a fun, quirky yet macabre little book like you d expect out of Mark Buckingham Fans of Books of Magic, The Unwritten, and Fables will enjoy.
Looks OK, but is completely impenetrable if like me you ve not read the first book in the series Jumps around too much, never so much as tries to introduce the characters, and leaves one with too much unknown.
Engaging both in visuals and storyline, this graphic novel is an excellent escape from the normal Interspersed with humor and deeper meaning, it succeeds at many levels Highly recommended Buy it if you can borrow it if you can t.
More fun adventures being dead, with a story that takes us to one of the lands of the dead and to a windmill where a Buddhist Monk relative of one of the boys lives Like the first collection, this was decent with some silly over reaches in character creation.
A Netgalley advance A marked improvement over the first volume, as the repercussions of what happened at the private school follow Crystal home and as Charles learns about his family history.
With a personal mystery about Charles father, this title continues to be a solid mix of the Hardy Boys and a Stephen King novel Fun, low key, ghost silliness.
Still strong Now the series is set up and I m looking forward to seeing what happens next.
That was fun.
