Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up
This successful transformation of Gaiman's Neverwhere (HarperCollins, 1997) into a graphic novel will delight fans of the book and appeal to readers unfamiliar with his story of London Below. Richard Mayhew stumbles upon a subterranean city when he comes to the aid of a mysterious woman called Door. Pursued by two vicious and bloodthirsty thugs, they undertake a quest to discover the person responsible for murdering Door's family. During their journey, they encounter talking rats, an angel, and a fierce beast that they must defeat in order to survive. The illustrations are both stunning and full of surprises. While the imagery might differ from the London Below that readers of Gaiman's original narrative imagined, Fabry has invented a world that captures its mood. Carey's adaptation of a BBC TV series is faithful to Gaiman's story, although the shorter format necessarily leads to abbreviations and omissions. Carey places Mayhew in the role of narrator, and the compact retelling makes for a fast-paced adventure.

    A thick read.

    I won't lie. I bought this graphic novel based entirely on the author. It took me well over a year before I pulled it off my shelf to read it. It was interesting, not bad. Though I doubt I'm going to be reading it again anytime soon.

    Great introduction to Gaimons World/Work

    For someone who has not read much, or any, of Neil Gaimons adult fiction this graphic novel would be the perfect introduction. The story is very engaging and the characters have enough depth that you are interested in what happens to them. It is a quick read, something you can get through in a day or two easy afternoons.

    The artwork is absolutely fantastic and is a shining example of what can really be achieved in four color graphic novel print. The blandness coming in stark contrast of the vivid images discovered in London Below. Glenn Fabry is a master in every way, known to me because of his work on "The Preacher." If you enjoy this graphic novel, make sure to pick up the novelization as well.
