"Hello Declan. You will grow......colder"
This graphic novel shows how important a cover image is. I have read a lot of reviews and almost every one said they were drawn to the cover image. Some didn't even care what it was about! They just had to read it!
This really was incredible. Nimble Jack is hungry. Always hungry. He wants to feed on your insanity. Insanity created from a world built around your greatest fears and darkest nightmares. As a character he was incredibly disturbing. He reminded me of a cross between Stephen Kings IT and The Joker from the old Batman comics.
Jack has been saving Delclan. Letting him stew in his delicious insanity. Now he is almost ready.
The medical world has given up on Declan. No one can figure out why he is so..cold. Reece, a hospital worker becomes his carer. Only the return of nimble Jack brings Declan back from his comatose state. Jack has dragged Reece into his nightmarish world full of disturbing creatures and only Declan can bring her back.
The creatures in this dimension are incredible. I was really impressed by the originality in the design. If the creatures from Silent Hill had nightmares. These would be the creatures they dreamed off.
This really is a must read. I can't recommend it enough. Especially as its coming up to Halloween.
I'm hoping the next instalment will tell us more about the origins of Nimble Jack and his dimension. I just hate the fact that I have to wait till next year to read it!
