Complete Clive Barker's Great And Secret Show

The Complete Clive Barker's Great and Secret Show - Clive Barker, Chris Ryall, Gabriel Rodguez I did not rate this higher because, for a graphic novel, it can get a bit verbose at times. This slowed down the pace for me as a reader at times. Having said that, this is a very rich work with much depth. It is a tale of a battle between good and evil forces and those folks who get caught up in the battle. And it all starts in a dead letters section of a post office (or so it seems). Readers who have enjoyed works by Stephen King, such as The Stand, and the more recent series by Hill, Lockey & Key, which I have read, will probably enjoy this. The art, which is pretty good, did remind me of the style you see later in Locke & Key. This is a graphic novel adaptation that you need to take the time to read, but it is a good, entertaining read. I would be curious to see if other books in the Books of the Art series have been given the graphic novel treatment as well. I am curious to read the rest of the series at some point, see how things turn out. This kind of novel does lend itself to adaptation. So, a nice read, but for me, it could be a bit slow. Still, if you like Clive Barker or similar writers, you will probably enjoy it.
