did not like it

One Soul is an ambitious failure. If you are unaware, it is 18 concurrent stories told one panel per page. So rather than having a story per chapter (for example) all 18 stories are told every page.

When faced with a gimmick, I ask the obvious question "Would it be interesting if you remove the gimmick?" and the answer is almost always (and is in this case) "no". In fact, I doubt if you re-ordered these into 18 separate stories this graphic novel ever gets published. There just isn't anything beyond the format to sell this book and I found the format to be incredibly annoying.

Ray is a talented artist and I heartily enjoy the Possessions series but this book is not one I'd ever recommend.
