Fun and kind of puzzling little read from the masterminds: Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean. These two together are almost always absolute magic. Unfortunately, I found this piece a little hard to swallow, or maybe it just slipped down my throat too fast... This is truly a children's book, and as opposed to Gaiman's Coraline, which was at least a more complete novel, this one is truly more akin to a picture book. There are few words, and those are mostly simplistic and poetic, often repetitive. McKean's art is intriguing as usual, though here is perhaps a bit more "traditional" (if you can ever call his art traditional) and less exploratory. Still a rather chilling tale, told at face-value, with no explanations. Hmm, I'm still making up my mind about this one.
