Hollow Easter Bunny,
This review is from: Aaron & Ahmed (Hardcover)
As a graphic novel - the art in this book is fantastic and worth the price.
However - this story is like biting into a chocolate Easter bunny you think is going to be full only to discover its hollow inside. The story has plenty of ideas - how powerlessness causes anger which leds to torture and justification; how loss builds up in us; how ideas get inside our heads and how religion is one of the main perpetrators of putting ideas in our heads; and how if you don't know what you already think about God - someone who does will have power over you. Problem is, none of these ideas are really fleshed out or come to any other conclusions that surface reaction. The end feels like a "tack on" (as in "We don't know how to end this situation") and the word "love" is mightily abused with no real direction or meaning.
In short: Great art, a great start, but nothing to bring it together.
