After volume 1, this was quite a let down. Too much narration was used to keep the story moving, and not enough dialogue. I think they just tried to cram too much into one volume.

I did not rate this higher because, for a graphic novel, it can get a bit verbose at times. This slowed down the pace for me as a reader at times.

Good ending to the entire first part of this two part book. I only hope CLive Barker allows permission for the final half to come out as his art was intended for.

If you liked the novel you should seriously check this out. The artwork alone is pretty crazy.
