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 (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any 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. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
