Live To Read
Fans of Richelle Mead and comics will be ecstatic to hear that she now has a novel or two out in comic form! The pictures are clear, tiny details all there. The story is followed very well-not the easiest thing to do when making a novel into a comic.
Eugenie is the main character in this comic. She is a strong, self-assured woman with a mission. In the beginning of the comic she is trying with partial success to get a death spirit out of her clients' shoe. Eventually she forcibly removes the death spirit and sends him to the Lands of Death. She then meets up with what turns out to be a strange case. A man seeking his sister, Jasmine, abducted by fairies over a year ago. Eugenie takes a step back and talks the case over with her stepfather before making any decisions.
The reader is next introduced to Tim, Eugenie's super hot roommate. He tries to sway her to have fun and relax. She actually takes him up on his advice and goes to a bar where she meets Kiyo-who is even better-looking than Tim! It's not long before Kiyo and Eugenie sneak off to his apartment where fairly graphic pictures ensue. The story ends on a surprising note, indicating to the happy reader that there will be another comic coming soon! This book is recommended to readers who enjoy fantasy/romance/comics.

I really enjoyed this! A nice blend of fantasy and supernatural.

Eugenie is very well portrayed. Reasonably confident, but not over the top. Caring and practical. It is very easy to like her. The pace seems well done. Her 'minions' are likeable in their own way too.
Eugenie is given a request that she doesn't really want to take on. Travel to the Otherworld to rescue a man's sister. Such travel is dangerous but she feels for the guy so she takes on the assignment. However, before she goes she has some unique encounters first as demons, fairies and the like start calling her by name. How did she become known to them. So now it is a two-part job. Save the girl and learn why the Otherworld wants her.
This story seems well paced for a graphic novel. A nice blend of action, romance and fantasy. Very solid story. My only complaint is the drawing of the faces seems too harsh in a lot of shots. Just my opinion though. Otherwise the artwork is nicely done. Good blend of coloring and shading.
I made one grave mistake in my reading of this. I read this BEFORE the book. So now I have to backtrack and read the novel. Wish me luck!
