There's something disconcerting about the Luna Brothers that I just can't put my finger on. Some misanthropic strain in their writing that makes me feel distinctly unpleasant even when I like the art and the plot. This appears to have carried over into Joshua Luna's solo work, as Whispers has the same sort of energy.

It's all fine until the first scene that really requires conversation. The way characters talk to each other in that first scene has an uncomfortable, almost stuttering quality that

This is a strange book; the lead has OCD and broken relationships. And then he starts astral projecting at night. And things just get stranger from there. As Sam explores his abilities, he gets drawn into a web of demons and consequences. The story goes in very different directions than expected, and honestly it's a little hard to take, but it is definitely unique. The art is spare, effective but not impressive (aside from one overlay image at the end of the second issue, which really struck me ...more

Okey first things first, the fact that this comic was done by one man is pretty awesome. I mean he did everything (Art, coloring, inking, story, writing) this is quite a unique thing as far as I know.

The premise of the comic is pretty interesting but the characters, while good, don't hold up to established character characteristics. I will clarify.

The premise and story:
The main character start to experience something weird while dreaming. He experience himself as a ghost that can Listen to other

The idea behind Whispers is very intriguing. Who doesn't secretly dream of being able to bend another's will to your own? However all that the idea promises is pushed by the way side in favor of some rather needless scenes of violence and lackluster artwork. Had any of these scenes paid off in the bigger picture I might have been willing to forgive but I found myself checking more than once to see how close I was to the end so I could move on to something else. There is a moment at the end that ...more

This is not your average comic/graphic novel. It is a dark psychological/supernatural tale about a guy who develops an ability to go places in his sleep as a ghost, see what is happening, and sometimes manipulate other minds. There is a twist toward the end that throws this plot in a different direction. A lot of reviews don't like the ending. It's not my favorite direction, but I don't hate it, and I am curious where it will go in future volumes. Whispers has definitely caught my attention as s ...more

I went into this blind, and I am glad I did!
I enjoyed this a lot.. the other reviews don't seem to like it as much as I did though, which is odd!
The art was really good, the story was a weird roller coaster. I didn't mind the ending at all, I would have liked it to go another direction but this was just fine as well, it seemed to be something unexpected from the start, so the unexpected end was okay with me.
I might just read more Joshua Luna stuff now..

Started off one way and ended a VERY different way. Wish the art had stayed at the same level at the end of the book like it did at the start but I understand how hard that is to do when one isn't used to drawing at that pace.

If the ending was different I think I would have rated this higher.

Bought this is Chicago. It was an interesting GN. I started reading the comics when it first came out and it was an interesting take on the subject matter. I think the downfall was the two-month wait between comics. If anyone wants to borrow it, let me know.

Been meaning to read this one for awhile. It's fine, although nothing special. I like the Luna brothers' comics, and currently I'm very much enjoying Alex + Ada. But although I liked Joshua Luna's solo effort, it didn't hit me as the other works he's collaborated on with his brother.

This was much darker than I anticipated and I did not fully understand the climax or purpose of the story.

3.5 stars interesting comic, not sure I get the ending but I sped through it so it kept my attention and hooked me.

It was beautiful visually but the potential was wasted. Plot was a hot mess that wrapped up super weird. Nothing was answered. *raises fists of anger skyward*
