The plot was fine, but I usually find the level of artistry in graphic novels (note: I haven't read many) lacking. I'm not say that self-taught artists are bad, just that a more extensive grounding in drawing human and animal forms would be very helpful.

This story is spooky, spine-tingling and mysterious. Will Jilly be caught before it's too late? Well, it's kind of already too late...yikes.

My favourite of all the comic book adaptations of Briggs' work. Not because this book is super awesome- it's decent, but not great. It's more that the previous ones have been poor.

I am a pretty big Briggs fan, but I've only read a couple of graphic novels so I may be overlooking elements of drawing, layout and design. That said, I thought the drawings of the people were lively and evocative of the story as it progressed. To me the animal drawings were less successful, the wolves looking like a cross between a horse and a cat, and colored oddly. Ben, I think, was not striped like a tiger in the non-graphic Briggs novels. The story involves the discovery of the graves of missing children, bullying and name calling among high school students, and destructive mischief of unsupervised children. A satisfactory ending leaves, on balance, a favorable feel to this book.
