really liked it
bookshelves: comics
Read in December, 2009

One of Gaiman’s apprenticeship works in which his dialog and narration are sometimes close to being melodramatic. I don’t know why I wasn’t expecting a superhero book but it was lovely to have Gaiman’s deft hands work Batman, Swamp Thing and Poison Ivy. Gaiman is a natural storyteller but an added bonus is the feminist theme. I was pleasantly surprised and I wish Gaiman would do some more mainstream superhero stuff since I always enjoy it when he does.
