How many times do you read a graphic novel that actually makes you think while you read? How many make you stop reading to examine the dark, offbeat and unique spin of the artwork page by page as you're doing so? And how few do you pick up again after you've finished reading to re-examine each page several times to marvel and make sure you didn't miss a detail or nuance? This obscure gem is one of those very few that make these things happen, and therein lays just some of its greatness.

Part psychological horror, part noir-ish murder mystery, part existential terror tale with hefty helpings of gothic dread, implausible peripheral characters and visceral phantasmagoria all make this a suspenseful read, and I'm not easily impressed nor a huge fan of your typical graphic novels. But I was mesmerized by this one, enough to read it again the next day. The philosophical questions asked alone make you take pause to ponder their implications at several points during the read, but aren't ponderous or off-putting - it's not trying to impress with its intelligence or self-importance, let's be clear about that. This is entertainment that enlightens, assuming you let it. But it's still cool if you don't. Either way, it's a riveting read.

It's difficult to describe, but it involves marginalized people with dark secrets who end up in a place called Green Wake, unaware of how they got there and unable to leave. Most are so dysfunctional, disenfranchised and mentally destitute they don't speak to anyone and rarely venture outdoors. Except the two male protagonists, who've taken it upon themselves to act as both detectives determined to discover why they're suddenly residents and act as welcoming committee to the newly arrived, to assist with the shock of this huge void.

Format: Paperback
Artwork: 5.0 out of 5
Have you read a comic book that visually made you want to spend your whole day examining each and every panel? Studying the line work, trying to figure out how the colors work together so well, looking for anything that could be hidden visually? I said it on each review I did for this series so far and I will not stop now, Riley Rossmo was born to draw this book. If I loved his work on Proof and Cowboy Ninja Viking than it's official that I am head over heels for what he has done on this book because it is just pure simple perfection. enough gushing, the panels in this collection contain a great amount of detail and information. The designs fit the mold set by the story and are consistent throughout. The over the top 2 page spreads though, made this headless man drool and slightly pass out. This is how this story was meant to be seen.

Story: 5.0 out of 5
"Ladies and Gentlemen, Kurtis Wiebe is stepping up to plate. He's a relative newcomer to horror comic writing, but has a solid batting average in the medium. Here comes the pitch... OH WIEBE GOT A HOLD OF IT! IT IS LEAVING THE STADIUM FOLKS! A SOLID OUT OF THE PARK HOME RUN!" Where on Earth, Mars or even within the Milky Way Galaxy did this story come from? I personally will start thanking Mr. Wiebe on a weekly basis for bringing this solid writing to my life. The idea and concept of Green Wake is 100% a mystery to one and all, however it seems that it can present itself differently to everyone. I see that, as the reader, as limitless potential to create a world that can never really end. If you like mystery books, this one is for you. If you like horror books, this one is for you. If you like amazing storytelling, this one is for you.

I was a little apprehensive purchasing this book but I am glad I did. The reason for the three stars is that the story was okay but I think this might be something that is going to build into something better in the next Green Wake book which I intend to order.
