    Quentin's story focuses on magic and quests while Alice's point-of-view is much more grounded. It's the perspective that follows a more logical approach rather than just accepting all of these magical elements as they are. I'm hoping that the other two books get similar adaptations since this one proved to add more to a set story. Read Full Review

It confidently adapts Lev Grossmans source material to the comic book format, it serves as both a welcoming entry point and fresh reinterpretation of the first novel, and perhaps most importantly it provides a fun, exciting and thoroughly unpredictable fantasy tale. Well worth a look. Read Full Review
