Boneyard, Vol. 1 was on display today in the Teen Annex at my local library (in anticipation of Halloween?). A quick read, Boneyard introduces a small town that has a cemetery full of monsters and a population of torch-toting locals who want it destroyed. The images seem a bit cramped on the over-sized page and weren't particularly inspiring. The humor is fairly heavy-handed, though the monsters are somewhat endearing. I'm not sure I need to read the rest of the series, though I am a bit intrigu ...more

This black and white comic follows Michael Paris who's recently inherited property in Raven Hollow and finds out that property is a cemetery. When he arrives in town, the mayor and sheriff eagerly greet him, hoping that Michael will sell the property to the town so they can tear it down. However, their overwhelming enthusiasm brings Michael to the gates of the cemetery where he meets a collection of undead characters who want to convince him to keep the property. There's a few misadventures, he ...more

How in the hell did I miss this series – it totally rocks.

In the first book – Michael who likes to go by the name Paris is left a cemetery by his grandfather. Yup you heard me right – but this cemetery is not like any cemetery you have ever heard of, it has people or things that are labelled as people living in it and they are from one extreme to the next.

Paris ends up in the middle of a tug of war between the people of the town Raven Hollow who wants the placed flattened to the ground and the r

Seriously. Why this isn't a more mainstream title or hasn't been picked up for a big screen adaptation is beyond me. It's got everything that people like. Humor, romantic tensions, misunderstood monsters & vampires, mysterious uncles & horrible plans. The characters are all highly likeable too. Even when characters are evil you still love reading about them.

The story follows a young man named Michael Paris who inherits an old graveyard from an uncle in the town of Raven's Hollow. The to
I like to keep up on what middle school students are reading. I especially like to read books recommended by my students. This was a recommendation from a 'goth-girl' at my last school. She loves all things vampire, and so there's little surprise that this is about...a vampire.

Personally, I think it's cute. I thought the art was OK, nothing spectacular, buy it was nice. I didn't like the way Abby is drawn. I can't put my finger on it, but she seem's too cartoonish to me. Paris and the werewolf a

Richard Moore, Boneyard, vol. 1 (Nantier Beall Minoustchine, 2002)

Michael Paris' grandfather died and left him land in the secluded town of Raven Hollow. When he gets there, intending to do nothing but sell it to the town and go on his merry way, he finds out that the land is actually a cemetery, and that its inhabitants-- some of whom are not at all dead-- would prefer the town not get their hands on it, since the mayor wants to tear the cemetery down and put up a shopping mall. Now Michael has

I unabashedly love this comic. But then, I genuinely love all things Halloween.

It's rare to find a monster comic that is geared towards comedy. This is the only one that I know of that is successful. The characters are pretty stand out, and I could see this as an animated series. The two protagonists of Abby and Paris are pretty whimsically drawn and the series crackles with hilarious one liners from the diverse motley crew of monsters, including a she version of Creature of the Black Lagoon, a

The copy I read was oversized, but I feel it may have worked better in a smaller format. The pacing was awkwardly fast in some places but dragged in others, and the characters didn't do it for me - especially the weirdly oversexualized fish monster. The only thing I can say is that the art was nice enough, and in my memory, the panels have their own internal motion, more like a clip from an animated cartoon than a static comic panel. However, neat as that is, it's not enough to make me pick up t ...more
