Rex Libris, Volume 2: Book of Monsters based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Rex is the Head Librarian at Middleton Public library. But Middleton...isn't your average library. And Rex isn't your average librarian. Rex is an immortal librarian, beginning his training back in the great ancient Library of Alexandria. And Middleton serves patrons from all over the universe and all manner of creatures. Rex and librarians, Circe, and Hypatia--a trainee librarian, battle a seemingly never ending stream of monsters ranging from zombies to Cthulhu himself unleashed from the pages of books. Only Rex and his crew can return them to where they belong.This second volume picks up right where the first one left off. One thing they did differently in these issues (7-12) is that they cut out a lot of the overhead boxes explaining everything to the last detail, which makes it a bit easier to read (although the text choice is still not the greatest.) The artwork it one of my favorite parts of the book. I know I've seen people describe it as computer generated (and it very well maybe) but it has a different type of vibe to it. I don't want to say it's simple, but without having a lot of extraneous lines they still manage to give the characters and backgrounds depth. And they do a great job with the facial features so that the expressions change depending upon what's going on in the story line, I especially enjoy seeing Rex's look of fear in some of the scenes...mostly where he's facing a monster that the rest of us would have already run screaming from.This second volume of Rex Libris is just as much fun as the first volume and makes me wish that there were more stories coming of this gang of librarians.
Series has been interesting. The story sounded good. Another good read.
