This graphic novel is gorgeous. The drawings are fantastic, especially in one sequence where they interrupt the text to outline a chase scene that sends your heart pounding as you flip the pages. The story's certainly a page-turner, though it has some rather weird flaws that take you out of the story a bit. But the drawings pull you in so much the rest of the time, it evens out.

Curl up with a hot drink and read it all in one go.
