Review: The Ghost, The Owl


The Ghost The Owl

Publisher: Action Lab Entertainment

Release: May 8th 2018
Received: NetGalley
Rating: 4 kitty rating

I received a copy of The Ghost, The Owl from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The Ghost, The Owl is first and foremost a ghost story (shocking, I know), but the author decided to go a non-traditional route for their story. Instead of having it be a horror story, it is instead an endearing tale that’ll tug on your heartstrings. It’s a short story and a really quick read (I believe it took my about a half hour to read, and a lot of that was my ogling the artwork).

The somewhat eerie and wistful tale of our little ghost is beautifully supporting by some of the most stunning artwork I’ve ever seen in a graphic novel. I sincerely cannot say enough positive things about Sara Richard’s artwork. It’s striking, elegant, detailed, and evocative all in one. If there were prints made available for this graphic novel you can believe that I would buy some.

This graphic novel is only about half as long as I’d like it to be. I would have loved to see more of the characters and the absolutely stunning world that’s being given to us here. I also wouldn’t have said no to more artwork by Sara Richards, but that’s probably no surprise there (side note to self: look up Sara Richard’s portfolio online).


About Liz

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try and artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. The facts: My favorite color is constantly changing, so don’t worry about trying to keep up with that! I’m in my 20’s, married, and looking to find the perfect job for me (ideally something that can involve my creativity or my love of animals). I have 6 cats (If we’re being technical, I have 2 cats and my parents have 4), a bearded dragon, a parakeet, and two betas. I adore all of them, and they frequently are my photography models. My blog will primarily be consisting of my 365 (366) photography project, updated daily (hopefully). I’m also working on a 52 weeks project, where I try a new type of photography style or technique each week. That will be updated as the photos are processed.
