A solid second volume.

This volume was split like the first; half of it being about the boys, the other half a short story about the Unknown. The first story was just a continuation from the first volume, Wirt and Greg are still out looking for the hero frog! Only this time the brothers are separated and trying to find each other again. I really liked the way the art changed when it was just Wirt and I feel like it reflects his character. Unfortunately, it wasn't as funny as the first half was.

More of the same - adventures with Greg and Wirt, where Greg comes out no worse for the wear due to his positive way of seeing things and Wirt kind of getting the short stick of things. I liked the reintroduction of previous characters and the slight continuation of the overall mystery.

El segundo volumen de las novelas gráficas de Over the Garden Wall me ha gustado más que el primero. Las ilustraciones son más otoñales y me gusta que hay escenas mucho más oscuras y "halloweenescas" que en el primer tomo.

4/5 I love the continuation of the story in the first half, but the second half is a side story about the school they visit in the second (or third?) episode and it just seems meh to me.

Even though I didn't love the first volume of this collection, I still decided to give Over the Garden Wall Vol. 2 a shot since I had already checked it out from the library.

My thoughts about this one are pretty similar to the first...

Hunt for Hero Frog- Greg/Wirt
This book picks up with the two boys in a tavern. Wirt says they had a rough night but Greg is all excited about it! We then see the story of the night told by Greg first, and it’s very bright and colorful. Then we see Wirt’s version w

Oh, wow. I'm a little torn here. On one hand, the first half of this volume was so good (and frightening!), but on the other, I wasn't a huge fan of the second half, which was took a break from the main plot of finding the Hero Frog to just have fun with two short stories about Ms. Langtree's schoolhouse.

Book content warnings:
a really horrific scene (view spoiler)

So here we have a bedraggled Wirt and Greg sho

Following the continued adventures of the wayward brothers questing for the "Hero Frog". Both recount meeting apparitions in totally different moods. We really see how Wirt is very melodramatic and overthinks himself, while Greg takes everything in a bright friendly way as a child. They become separated and find their own adventures on the way. The second half oddly returns to Miss Langtree's School of animal students and their lives. They gain a new elephantine exchange student and must rescue ...more

This volume of Over the Garden Wall contains three stories: the continuation of Greg's search for Hero Frog, and the last two are about the potatoes and molasses schoolhouse from the TV show.

Greg's story is very funny because it shows how he sees the world, versus how Wirt sees it.

The last two stories with the schoolhouse are so vintage-looking I felt like I was at my grandparent's house reading old children's books. Limbs seem to be made of jell-O, and colors are limited but bright, with blue

Now having read two volumes of Over the Garden Wall I realize that it's also a bizarre maybe-for-kids, maybe-for-adults TV series on Cartoon Network. That explains a lot. Like why the first story involves a pair of brothers having, basically, a tooth decay-related nightmare. That story is funny, though, even if it totally dark and weird. The second story, about an elephant who doesn't fit in at his new school, is fundamentally dull, even if I were a member of the six-year-old target audience. De ...more

The first part, dedicated to the boys, was nice. I enjoyed to discover the story through their very different points of view and with different art styles. We didn’t seem to come nearer to the hero frog, so maybe they’ll reach him in the last volume. The rest wasn’t my cup of tea, the story wasn’t exciting or fun and the art was more messy than pleasant to look at. I preferred the 2nd part of the 1st volume for sure.

Those who loved the Cartoon Network mini series Over the Garden Wall will want to pick this up! I personally adored the original series and think this is a great addition to it. The comic series continues the story of Wirt and Greg but also gives us insight on the sode characters in the show as well. The characters are true to themselves and just as lovable as in the original series! ~Elisa

Pretty much more of what I expect from Over the Garden Wall.

I have to say, though, that my favorite part was the children's book style stories that took place in the animal school. I was rather fond of these Beatrix Potter-inspired characters in the TV series, and so to get not one but two stories centering around them was a real treat.

the first half was good, though maybe not as interesting as in vol one. but ugh the second part didn’t interest me at all. i would rather have seen a follow up story to the one in volume one, that actually sent out a good message to the reader. this story about miss langtree’s school was a miss for me.

but i will continue because i like the greg and wirt story and i love the art for that comic.

4/5 stars

This whole series is just so wholesome and easy to read. I'm loving the main story so much, and I enjoyed the smaller stories at the end of this, although I prefer the second story in the first volume more just because it felt more relevant and less like a filler as these ones did!

En definitiva estos cómics son muy buenos para:
1. Si te gusto la serie y quieres ver nuevas aventuras de Greg y Wirt, o
2. si quieres pasar el rato con una historia entretenida y buenos personajes

Me gusto Bastante y por eso 4.5 de 5 estrellas

PD: Amo la portada!!!!

I could have done without the chapters with the animal children with Ms. Langtree, because I prefer the darker storytelling in Over the Garden Wall in general, but this was an entertaining volume nonetheless.

Looking for Hero Frog, Wirt and Greg get separated. That portion of the story was really interesting. And the beginning from each of their perspectives was fun.

The 2 bonus stories were ok. I liked the Pooree elephant one a bit better, it was cute. The last one on the raft was kind of boring.

This was a delightful start to my day. The first story showed the quest for Greg's 'hero frog' through Greg's adorably optimistic worldview and Wirt's lens of fear. It was a clever way to contrast brothers that are as different as potatoes and molasses. (Episode 3 reference, look it up!)

This was just weird. The first story involved the boys & their epic journey to find home (told from both viewpoints). The next stories were entirely unrelated and just a bit odd.

My favourite part of this story was revisiting the school teacher and her classroom full of animals! They welcome a new student, Pooree the Elephant, and much chaos ensues.

first two chapters were quite good and I began to see why the show had a following, but the second half was a let down, just like the first volume.

these graphic novels are still... SO bizzare, but... they are weirdly adorable? I don't know. I'll still continue on with them.
