I really enjoyed this story! The plot took a slow and meandering path setting up the story's foundations so that most of the action is in the last third of the book, but the next volume carries quite a bit of promise from where things left off.

The story runs something like this: After the death of their father/husband, a mom and her two kids move into their great-grandfather's house. While exploring the house, the mom is sucked into a dimension with nightmares and curious dreams around every bend. It's up to the children to follow her and figure out how to not only rescue her but return with everyone alive.

The colors: amazing. I read so many black & white graphic novels that sometimes I forget just how beautiful colors can be in a comic, especially what they add to the reader's experience.
