    "This book "30 Days Of Night", came out in 2007 and is one of the most epic horror books with a big movie made as well. It's a very thrilling and scary book that will defiantly give you a chill if you're up to it. I love it and I will also recommend the movie as well with the same name."

    "I actually started Sandman for a bookclub a few months ago. I liked the graphics but the story line was a little hard to keep interest in. I do like the character of Morpheus though. It was funny to have to see him deal with a different time period."

    "Horror comics and graphic novels just seem to mix like peanut butter and jelly. I always seem to gravitate towards the genre because I can just take it easy on a Saturday afternoon and read a horror graphic novel for hours. It is the perfect weekend novel. I think this book does a great job of reintroducing me to some of the best horror graphic novels that I have read in the past. "

Roy Thomas' writing is faithful to the source material, but it really is Giordano's work that seems to grab hold of your imagination and display it in the pages for you to see.

    "I came across this story by accident...and I couldn't be happier about it. I don't know Japanese but I was priviledged enough to watch a subtitled version of the first season and I'll recommend it to anyone who will listen. lol In fact, that's why I'm here. It was a storytelling experience that almost never happens for me. It's rare to find a story that speaks so honestly of true love, loss, heartache, healing...that speaks of life and the inner turmoil of human hearts. Of course it begins as a teenage love story and who hasn't experienced that? The feelings you walk away with after watching this story are overwhelming and palpable. I'm a lover of good, character driven stories. This is it, my friends. The characters are layered and charming. The story has all the emotional elements required to linger on well after it's over. It's sad, happy, funny, and inspirational. What happens when inexperienced 15 year old Nanami Takahashi falls for the most popular boy in school, who's heart's been wounded by the death of his cheating first love? Motoharu Yano was not expecting to be able to let another person into his heart again, but when he does he has trouble being honest and facing his past mistakes...that is, until he realizes he could lose the one girl he's lived his life to meet. And what happens when your best friend is in love with the same girl? What happens when you have to choose between the right thing to do and the most important person in your heart? Can you find the love of your life in high school? it's a story that leaves crying at the end of the first season. I just love the story."

While I did like the scarier aspects of the story, I wish the suicide had been treated with a little more respect. Still; the illustrative style matches up well with the writing, making for a darkly atmospheric graphic novel."
