This volume finishes the story that started with the first volume, and leaves room for the next. Plot is a bit more interesting, and we get to understand Simons world a bit more in this one, but ultimately it lacks plot and character development like the previous volume.
The art also looks exactly the same as in the previous volume which is good for the continuity of the series.
Overall, another ok, and really quick, read.

Weird, oddly lovely, awkward, but somehow still intriguing enough to want to keep reading even for the larger flaws. I am so confused and fascinated by my interest in this book.

This book is so weird and quirky, I honestly can't tell you why I like it, but I do; however, it's not quite as good as the one that came before it.
Still hard to follow, but I like the character of Simon Dark.
