Fans of Peter Straub's horror works, such as Ghost Story, as well as those of Michael Easton's graphic novel Soul Stealer series should find The Green Woman equally engrossing. One does not need to be familiar with either author's writings, however, to be swept up in this compelling, macabre, witty yet disturbing work. John Bolton's illustrations brilliantly capture the grime, gore, and eerie, mesmerizing beauty of the Green Woman's realm of madness.Read more ›
Fielding Bandolier, a villain in Straub's other books (which I have not read), wants to stop his killing spree. Apparently he feels like this one last murder will finally sate the Green Woman that drives him. Meanwhile Bob Steele is a not so noble New York detective that is trying to solve these murders and stop Fielding
This was an okay graphic novel. The artwork is pretty cool, I enjoyed the darkness to it and the blend of realistic and abstract montages. The only downside to it is I had a hard time following what was going on because sometimes it is hard to see which character is which in the dark drawings.
This is an incredibly violent and adult themed graphic novel. There are serial killings, violence towards women, scenes with naked people, abuse of alcohol and drugs, you name it it's in here. So, just a heads up.
I had a lot of trouble engaging with either of the characters. Fielding is an incredibly violent and disturbed man, we see some of his past and get some insight into where he learned some of his violence. Again this was a bit confusing because we jumped around in time as well as between two different characters. The graphic novel was fairly good about letting you know that you were going to a different time, it would have been nice to have a quick note about what character we were reading about as well.
Bob Steele is an all around jerk as well. He is an alcoholic, has a thing for whores, and all around pain in the butt to his colleagues. As I said between him and Fielding there really wasn't a character I was pulling for here.Read more ›
Note that I don't really do stars. To me a novel is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate a novel three-fifths worth reading! The only reason I've relented and started putting stars up there is to credit the good ones, which were being unfairly uncredited. So, all you'll ever see from me is a five-star or a one-star (since no stars isn't a rating, unfortunately).
I rated this novel WORTHY!

Gorgeously illustrated by John Bolton - I recommend a visit to his website.
This is a story about a Vietnam vet (veteran, not veterinarian) who was so warped by his experiences that he became a serial killer. So, yeah, trite. He believes a voice talks to him from under the table in the bar he frequents. Or is it the carved ship's figurehead of a semi-naked woman who does the talking? Whatever it is, he gets his orders and he takes down his young, nubile victims - and others. This guy is definitely sick.
The improbable thing for me was that the killer looks just like the new Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi! I know the new doctor is older and darker, but really! I have to say I had an issue with this character having a Vietnam history.Read more ›
