Really liked it. I hope Grossman is planning to make this into a series similar to the Narnia books. If you're going to be the C.S. Lewis for adults it would be fitting to make the series last around seven books. Of course, the books could end with this one and it would be fine, but I would love it for Ember or some other demigod to call on Quentin again. Or it could take place on Earth. I don't even care where the books are set as long as they keep coming.
This is also a good storytime book, particularly in the winter.
This is a good choice for reading at a storytime. There isn't a lot of dialogue or explanation so you can ask the kids what they think is going on, do funny voices for the animals, etc.
It was good, but I can't forgive it for depicting a Joker origin story (even if it was a hallucinated past). The Joker is best left unexplained.
This is a collection of Batman short stories from highly respected storywriters, artists, inkers, and pencilers in the comic book biz. Alongside excellent writing and illustrating the book gives you background on the contriburors, which is handy info to a comic books newbie such as myself. Now I know that Creep was a launching pad for many innovative artists and other fun factoids.
