Recommends it for: people who enjoy reading graphic novels
This is the fifth book in The Elsewhere Chronicles series of graphic novels by Nykko and Bannister. I discovered the first couple of books at our local library and our oldest liked them so much, I put the next few on hold right away. Now we realize that we are coming to the end of the published stories and we hope more are published soon.

This book starts up the story again after the dramatic ending to The Calling; will Max be able to save his friends? And will they ever get back home? The illust

Creepy, funny, sad and hopeful are the words I would use to describe this series of books. I picked them up at the library when I was waiting for Emma the other day thinking she would like them, but the cover for The Parting was slightly creepy so I decided to read them first. Good thing I did!

I've seen the books recommended for ages 7+ and also 9+ and I think the 9+ is more accurate. The books deal with some heavy issues, like death, child abuse and terminal illness. Nothing too graphic, but he

I read the first 5 volumes of the Elsewhere Chronicles in about two hours. It is a really well put together series, thoroughly enjoyable. I kind of think it would work better in a single collection (or at least, 1-3 in one big volume and 4-6 in a second volume) but splitting the books up with very mild cliff-hangers kept me interested. 3 stars for individual volumes but 4 stars across the board - this is not a particularly game-changing series but I did really enjoy it and I'm waiting ...more

I downgraded book four's rating because it seemed too transitional to me, so this one gets a stellar rating for being the payoff transitioned to. We get to know Rebecca's legendary grandpa, get our first look at a character who must surely be the Master of Shadows, and begin seeing hints of the story behind the Shadow World. This entire episode takes place in the Shadow World, with plenty of action, horror, drama, and character. And, as always, I love the art and never get tired of staring at it ...more
Although I am enjoying the art and the characters of this series, the books are coming waaaayyy too far apart. I think I've completely lost the thread. And there just isn't enough written into the story to help me pick it back up. It's a little frustrating. But there is enough promise here to keep me trying.

This fifth installment felt a little too short to me. The plot seems to be picking up speed a bit, so the brevity of the issue left things hanging a little more than normal, even.
