Comic Pick of the Week for November 13th 2013

Great Stories selects……

 

Wraith #1 (IDW)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How does writer Joe Hill follow up his masterpiece Locke & Key in the world of comics and graphic novels?  We have the answer here with a story ripped from the soul of his work N0S4A2.  For those who have not read the novel, it is about a scary denizen of evil named Charles Talent Manx, who drives around in a Rolls Royce that carries unsuspecting children to a strange and terrifying place called Christmasland.  You need not have read the novel to enjoy the story he has written spinning off of the source material.  Warning that reading this comic may cause you to shell out the extra dough to buy the novel….you have been warned!

 

Featuring the art of Charles Wilson whose work has been seen in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and independent The Stuff of Legend, Hill’s story is wonderfully told both visually and in a wordier than usual way (by comic industry standards).  You won’t be flipping through this book in a few minutes, but that is just fine because readers will be able to savor a bit more from this opening salvo of what looks to be a great series.

 

Wraith #1 is on sale everywhere comics are sold today.  Check it out and let us know your thoughts!

 

Great Stories are everywhere!
