"We’re all living in one big cage...The cage is open, but nobody leaves…We all have to leave the cage together."
A spooky graphic novel with minimalist illustrations that are symbolic of depression.
If there was a musical equivalent, it would be a hint of Myrkur's haunting vocals coupled with the feel of the moors in Wuthering Heights.
Emily Carroll again delivers a disturbing and gory narrative, complete with illustrations that drink from a well of the macabre.
Sufficiently creepy, Welcome to Lovecraft was an alluring welcome to the series. I ordered the second volume before I finished reading the first.
A noir poem set in downtown Cairo, The Apartment in Bab el-Louk is a vignette of observations and thoughts of a recluse who peeps through their window at men yelling in the street or scurries through their neighborhood when needed.
Damn. This was fantastic.

3 stars I loved how Raven's aunt and cousin are voodoo witches. With the introduction of supernatural beings under their control, the story added a whole new element that I think could grow into something mystical if the Raven series continues.
