A celebrated send-up of gothic literature, beautifully adapted into a dark, brooding, and oddly comical graphic novel. Somewhere in the night, a raven caws, an author’s pen scratches, and thunder claps. The author wants to write nonfiction: stories about frail women in white nightgowns, mysterious bumps in the night, and the undead rising to collect old debts. But he keeps getting interrupted by the everyday annoyances of talking ravens, duels to the death, and his sinister butler.

    Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire is a wonderful story that will leave you entertained and amused. Neil Gaimans writing is witty, whimsical and clever and Shane Oakleys art is a perfect accompaniment to this satirical Gothic tale. I recommend grabbing a copy, so that you may experience this story depicted in a lovely visual narrative. Read Full Review

    Art is a bit too stylistic, but fits the purpose and tone of this story. Coloring is sufficient to delineate the various settings. The story is fun and clever, but could stand to be fleshed out more especially considering the price point and page count. Overall worth a read, but I would only purchase if you can do so for less than cover price.
