Bookshelf Review: Colleen Doran Brings Neil Gaiman’s Troll Bridge to Glorious Life!
Just as Snow, Glass, Apples is far afield of Disney’s happily sanitized Snow White (or even the Grimm brothers’ original, for that matter), Troll Bridge is not your kindergartner’s Three Billy Goats Gruff. The tale, told in retrospect from the now-adult Jack, is beautiful prose: eloquent, evocative and yet somehow minimal at once. And, true to Gaiman form, fondly nostalgic of a youth lived in the wilds of fair(ish) Britain in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s. (13/13)
Pullbox Review: Mignola, Allie and Stenbeck Continue the Creature’s Tale in Frankenstein Undone #2
Here, we see growth in Frankenstein—of both his philosophy, and his prejudices. And his determination to find a similar, if not like, enlightened mind. The evolution of the creature’s thoughts and beliefs are as powerful as they are at times heart-wrenching—again, in solid tune with the source material. Mignola has written so well for so long (as has Allie), that it’s easy to take his tale-weaving for granted. Make sure not to—take the time to absorb the story the authors tell and not just tear through it like any other comic: this is literature, not pulp. Trust me—you’ll be glad you did.
Pullbox Reviews: Frankenstein Undone Fills the Gaps in the Creature’s Tale
Written by the powerhouse team of Mike Mignola and Scott Allie and drawn by long-time Mignola collaborator Ben Stenbeck, this five-issue arc picks up at the end of Mary Shelley’s novella and fills the gap to the creature’s (named Frankenstein, after his father, in the way of his people, in this issue) appearance in 2015’s Frankenstein Underground. (13/13)
