I have had this book on my wish list for quite some time and finally got it for Christmas. This was an intriguing little graphic novel. I enjoyed the story but wasn’t a huge fan of the sketch-like illustration style.
A writer and his friends offer to show the rather stern and unfriendly Miss Finch around London. They end up visiting a strange subterranean circus called The Theater of Night’s Dreaming. However, this gets more than a little peculiar when Miss Finch never emerges from the circus.
This is definitely an adult graphic novel (lots of talk about sex, nudity, etc). I enjoyed the quirky and mysterious story and found it engaging.
The illustration is colorful and interesting but has a very sketched out unfinished look to it (I know Zulli is famous for this style). This illustration style has never been my favorite and it took a bit away from the story for me. That’s not to say it’s bad, it’s just not for me.
Overall an intriguing and quirky little graphic novel. I would recommend to those who enjoy the strange and bizarre and unresolved mysteries.
