Ratings and Reviews
The haunting tale revisited
After reading up on some of the previous work of Erik van Os as well, I must really say that he has outperformed himself this time. The medium has drastically changed from classic paper-based comic to an app, and it turns out to be a good choice.
The images are big and dark, and therefore have a much bigger impact than the usual drawings in comics, that sometimes suffer from their cadres, outlines and each other. The absence of text balloons is quite refreshing as well, and all combined it just breathes space. The drawings are minimalistic but thought out well, and I happen to like the mixture of drawing and digital enhancements that is used in comics quite often.
The story is apparently based on a nightmare of his - and that does not surprise me. Mixing a ghost story with a more thriller-like adventure is a bit of a stretch, but especially the surprising end of it all was quite amusing. I re-read comic a few times by now, like I did with his traditional comics as well, which make this well worth the money. If you like dark tales with weird characters, go ahead and buy this!
spannend en vernieuwend
opgepikt via recensie Volkskrant: spannend verhaal op een geweldige wijze getekend en bewerkt. deze verschijningsvorm op tablet is een welkome afwisseling op de traditionele papiervariant.
Compelling graphic novel
Dark yet beautiful story, drawn in a stark and compelling style. Worth every penny.
