The first four chapters of this graphic novel made me want to put the book down and never pick it up again. It felt childish and just too “over the top” and I really struggled with it. So I put it down and thought I’d never again pick it up. But then I decided to push through after hearing a review that it would get better after the initial chapters. And I am happy to say that it did get a lot better and it really developed into a deep and interesting story.
It was fast to read, and the characters had a lot of depth despite my initial feeling that they were just completely crazy. The plot was surprising and it was fun to read from the so called villains POV and learning that everything is not always as it seems.
Reading this novel also kind of made me want to turn my own novel into a graphic novel, and I might have given it a try had I been able to draw.
So I do recommend this as a read for those interested in graphic novels. For those, like me, who are completely new to the whole graphic novel/comic book thing, I do however recommend starting with something else.
You can get it at Amazon.
