by Neil Gaiman (Author), Shane Oakley (Artist)
4 out of 5 stars
This graphic novel follows a writer who is struggling to write about “real life” in a tale of zombies, dreadful mysteries in damp dungeons, and evil pacts with the vile powers of darkness.
I loved the shadowy art style in this book! It’s so expressive and chaotic. It creates a definite mood for this eerie tale of nefarious deeds.
I am not a fan of horror stories, but this book is not really scary, and it made me laugh so much! It makes fun of typical horror tropes in such a clever way. The story jumps around a lot, but I think that is on purpose to create a disturbing atmosphere. I loved the plot twist at the end!
