if i've ever seen this episode it was only once or twice a long time ago and i only remember the vague idea of it and not any of the fine details, so i really liked this graphic novel reading experience because it was as if i were putting together the missing pieces from my memory.

the after hours is very surreal and unsettling like a dream you have where you are familiar with the setting but things don't look quite the way you think they should.

my copy is actually an ARC and so it would have b

The classic television episode The Twilight Zone: The After Hours enters another dimension of imagination as a full-length graphic novel. The story follows a young woman who goes to a department store to buy her mother a gift but ends up getting more than she bargained for. Adapted from Rod Serling’s original script, writer Mark Kneece takes a few liberties that expands upon the story to fill-in a few gaps. Rebekah Isaac’s artwork, however, stays quite faithful to the television episode; capturi ...more

As you might know, I love all things horror, so when I came across graphic novels based on "The Twilight Zone" I had to read them. This was the first one, I have another on hold.

This volume follows a confused woman who goes to a department store to buy a golden thimble as a gift for her mother. She keeps thinking the mannequins are talking to her. When someone finally asks her if she needs help, they direct her to the 18th floor... except there is no 18th floor.

The graphic novels are based on ac

So creepy! But i loved it.
The main character Marsha White is pulled into the real world and starts to believe that she is a human, but she is really a mannequin after all. Her dreams and thoughts are pasted onto the pages of this captivating comic. I was utterly sucked into this graphic novel, showing me the difference between reality, and thought. All though Marsha has a great time, she will have to leave the real world, of course after being chased through a stretch of time and space, and fin

Not a bad book. The artwork is solid, but lacks depth. The After Hours was a reasonable episode of The Twilight Zone, not one of the best, not one of the worst, but it probably wouldn't be one of my first choices to adapt as a graphic novel. The art os okay. Well drawn enough, but lacking depth.

Perhaps the most interesting part of it is the inclusion of scenes which were written for the episode, but never made it in. They don't add much to the story and I don't think the original episode was le

If you found the movie "Mannequin" to be terrifying, this one's for you. Otherwise, it's not one of the stronger entries in this series...

A quick, enjoyable read. The art is well-drawn, supports the story and brings the reader into a different world. I felt that some parts weren't written very clearly or were too vague for a graphic novel, but I guess that's just the style of The Twilight Zone. Anyhow, I thoroughly enjoyed The After Hours .
