Overview

  • Cursed with bad luck and trapped in a monotonous life, an unfortunate young man named Zazil longs to escape from the drudgery of his waking life and the troubled thoughts that haunt him. A good luck charm that
    Zazil finds in a dusty curio shop proves to be his ticket away from the mundane,
    but it brings him everything but good luck. When soul-stealing creatures called
    Charnocks pursue Zazil through strange lands and ghost trains, he must use his wits and courage to escape them - and finally face his past.

  • The 13th of Never is filled with detailed ink drawings that ring of a modern Edward Gorey, and a storyline filled with dark fantasy.

  • Crab Scrambly, the artist known to Slave Labor Graphics readers from his paintings in the storybook Everything Can Be Beaten,
    written by Chancre Scolex (sometimes known as Jhonen Vasquez), now has penned and illustrated a storybook of his own, The 13th of Never. The 72-page novella features more than 30 full-page black-and-white drawings by
    Scrambly.

I enjoyed reading The 13th of Never. The book flowed well, and I found it easy to get into the story. The drawings definitely added to the atmosphere of the kooky locales. Even though this book can be read in less than one hour, I still recommend it if you are looking for a quick distraction.
