Review: The Wraith - Welcome to Christmasland!

The WraithThe Wraith by Joe Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a free eARC of this book from NetGalley.

How cool was that? Joe Hill is one of my favorite authors, both for his graphic novels and his stories of prose. Well, this was a blending of the two. Hill takes a favorite villain from his awesome book NOS4A2 by the name of Charlie Manx and gives us his backstory, in comic form.

So yeah. How cool was that?

It came out beautifully too. 4.5 star beautiful. The story wasn't quite as good as that in NOS4A2, but it was still pretty damn compelling. And the artwork from Charles Manx Paul Wilson III was pretty spot on brilliant. This stuff was just as creepy in comic form as I pictured it when reading the novel.

So a prequel bonus for Joe Hill fans, or a great introduction to his work, this fits the bill. And if you like Easter Eggs....
