I found this one a bit confusing and abstract, I would have liked a clearer journey with each of the teachers.
This was a great read if you are into the dark and unusual. I really enjoyed the artwork as well.
The boy, Timothy Hunter, reminds me of Harry Potter with over-sized black-rimmed glasses, dark hair, and an introduction to magic. It was neat with appearances from Sandman and Death and an unexpected ending...
I only checked it out because I read somewhere that Death of the Endless would make an appearance. It was pretty good though
Although the main character was not very appealing, I enjoyed this somewhat encyclopedic and panoramic transtemporal voyage through DC's occult and paranormal universe(s). The art work really was exactly right and added more than a lot to the experience. Definitely not Sandman level work however.
Beautiful - story and art wise. It gives a beautiful feel of magic and what it can feel like in your life.
Interesting premise - I must say that I've been pleasantly surprised by the quality of story and language I've found in the "graphic novels" I've experimented with - these are not the comic books of our youth - I would recommend them to "reluctant readers"
This was an amazing read. I think everyone should read it! Oh, and for those who have read Neil Gaiman's "Instructions" poem (which is lots of people 'cause it keeps appearing in Fragile Things, M is for Magic, it's own picture book...anyway) you can see hints of it when Tim goes to Fairytale land. :D
This is a must-read for anyone who enjoyed the Sandman. The magical worlds and creatures in this series are haunting and beautiful and Tim Hunter is full of wit and sass. There are also guest appearances made by other Neil Gaiman characters.
