Personal Demons: 11/04/18

Personal Demons

Personal Demons by Nimue Brown is a graphic novel mood piece. Hopeless, Maine is an island of orphans, the adults are either missing or turned into demons. It also seems to be perpetually night time.

As there is very little in the way of back story, nor any sort of larger context, it's hard to see beyond the events immediately presented on the page. It's a short, dark (literally and figuratively), piece with a lot of running and a lot of hiding and some fighting.

Many reviewers praise this graphic novel, giving it full stars on GoodReads. For me, though, there's not enough here to grasp. It's not going to be a story that sticks with me beyond perhaps little snatches — a panel here, a panel there, perhaps.

Three stars
