Ho divorato questo volume. La storia e i personaggi mi hanno intrigato parecchio e i disegni sono proprio belli.

With recovering from Lorenzo's attack in the last volume Johanna Faust's past is revealed to us showing what Johanna was like before meeting Mephistopheles and the events leading up to their contract. This was a really good way to show us readers something of the past and to humanize (as oppose to demonize I suppose the main characters of our tale while the action takes a back burner for the moment.

Unfortunately for Johanna her curse of immortality comes with a major drawback in that anytime sh

Gorgeous, passionate drama. Interesting characters, beautiful art. This volume took the promise of the first and ran with it. Definitely recommend.

After the cliffhanger of last volume we get to see some of Johanna's past, which I for one, was super excited about! We get a glimpse of what her life was like and how she first met Mephistopheles and came to enter a contract with him. Plus we learn an interesting tidbit about how her deal with him works and why she looks the way she does and so on! It was nice to get a couple of answers straight away, but there's still plenty of mystery left to puzzle out!

I'm really loving Johanna, even when s

This is the second volume in the Frau Faust series and this was an excellent book in that series. I really ended up enjoying it.

Faust is recovering from her battle with Lorenzo and, in her unconscious state, she revisits her history and how she was originally bound to Mephisto (her demon). There is much more to the story than we were originally led to believe.

When Faust awakens she finds herself diminished to a child-like size but is determined to continue her quest to find Mephisto’s arm. The

This was a great second volume for the series! It retained the best qualities of the first volume and built on the established characters. This volume seemed to be focused on the grey areas of morality, specifically with Faust. Her desire for knowledge leads her to committing devious acts, in this case introducing a plant to a famine-stricken village that causes annual sickness. While it is obvious that she shows compassion towards others, Mephisto is quick to acknowledge that Faust's obsession ...more

If I hadn't ordered the first three volumes from the library together, I would have dropped this after the first book. Thankfully there's some actual characterization and plot in this volume and a decent cliffhanger to boot. Johanna's flashback provides some much needed character shading, but her modern incarnation continues to be irritating and smug. ...more

Still a very good story. These cliffhangers are killing me, though.

That cover art is really good. Same with the other volume. Another good volume in the series so far.
Es bleibt weiterhin offen, welches "Spiel" Faust und Mephisto spielen, also zu welchem Zweck. Der Ausflug in Fausts Vergangenheit war aber auch ganz nett. ...more

je pense avoir bien fait de continuer, dans ce tome là tout est beaucoup plus propre que le tome d'avant, les cases et la trad sont moins messy.
et c'est même plutôt intéressant.

This volume finally cleared up some misconceptions that were boggling me about Johanna and her whole immortality deal. Marion really wasn't present for most of this volume, and I feel like he is such an unnecessary character thrown in here just for the purpose of audience integration.
I appreciated the relationship between the two inquisitors -- guys can care about their friends too, geez. Mephisto is also getting creepier by the minute.
