    Even before they were written and collected, fairy tales tantalized readers with glimpses of realms beyond our own. Any Human who ventured into those realms saw great wonders but paid a price. Helen Of Wyndhorn #2 reminds us that early 20th-century fantasy authors like Robert E. Howard and H. P. Lovecraft suffered mental afflictions and died young. Yet their tales of magic and wonder, populated by heroes, monsters, and gods, left an indelible mark on our collective consciousness. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Apr 21, 2024

    I'm really enjoying the complex characterization of Helen who is still annoying, drunk, and unruly all the time, but was the only person who believed in her father, CK Cole. King resists speeding up the plot to get to more of the quest/fantasy elements to delve into the shared trauma of Barnabas and Helen that reveals itself through rage, isolation, and alcoholism.

    As the broader story develops, Bilquis Evely's presentation of every portion of this setting remains absolutely stunning. Even the interiors of the manner are bound to impress with vaulted ceilings and detailed backgrounds filled with books, wine, or weapons. Yet the exterior establishing panels are consistently jaw-dropping and provide readers sufficient cause to keep reading with wondrous green fields and gardens that appear to be from another world, perhaps they are.

    Plot
    Thomas Roger wrote a book about the tragic life of C.K Cole, based on the interview he did with Lilith Appleton, the housekeeper who took care of Helen when her father committed suicide.

    This comic tells how Helen asks her grandfather Barnabas Cole for answers about the monster that attacked them and he stopped, but she gets no answer, only elusive screams and the destruction of the dining room.

    Helen one day discovers her grandfather with an animal called FlyUne, which she knows thanks to reading her father's books, but this is a fantastic being and she believed that they did not exist, the mansion and those around Wyndhorn hide mysteries, which she tries to discover, because her father always told her that more
