Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Focusing more on the main story line and less on the delightfully baffling tangents, this third print volume of the webcomic follows Antimony Carver as she digs deeper into the history of the schism between her puzzling and cavernous boarding school and the surrounding wilderness, home to threatening yet alluring animal spirits and even deeper mysteries. While the story is growing darker as it gets thornier, there’s still a finely tuned balance of odd quirks and sly humor (mostly thanks to an ancient demon trapped in Antimony’s stuffed animal). Siddell’s deep-purple artwork is as gorgeous as ever. Grades 8-12. --Ian Chipman

Gunnerkrigg Court book 3: Reason, manages to somehow improve upon the already amazing story set up in books one and two. The artistic quality has improved, and the story keeps getting deeper. With "Reason" Tom Siddell has taken the rather comical story of Annie and Kat and, while keeping the humor, has made it a darker place. Revelations to several of the big questions in the series are answered in this book, and as most could guess from previous events, some of the answers leave both the cast and the readers with a sense of sorrow to the extent that it tries to make you question if you really wanted answers. This stands as the darkest chapters thus far in the Gunnerkrigg Court story. Between finishing the "Jack" story ark that has been running for some time now, and giving more information on a certain ghost, we begin to see the less pleasant aspects of the Court and its history.

Now, don't let my above comments make you think that the comedy has been replaced entirely with drama. Far from it. We still get a story with robotic cows that shoot lasers from their eyes and other such delightful subject matter. As a bonus, there is the inclusion of City Face 2 which is the "super good" story of a pigeon becoming a... human businessman? Something like that.

In terms of book quality, as in the actual hardcopy, I would say the quality is more like book one. My only complaints with the previous book was that the binding seemed like it wasn't quite as well constructed as the first. This volume I have no such complaints. The pages seem better constructed and the cloth binding is in the back (something book 2 did not have).

In conclusion: Gunnerkrigg Court is worth your time and money even if you have read it online.

This third volume of the wonderful webcomic "Gunnerkrigg Court" finds the story taking a dark turn. Annie and Kat continue their journey into the Court's history, making new friends and learning much about the Court and Forest. The book jumps in feet-first, immediately whisking the reader off to a seemingly simple, humorous Dr. Disaster story, instead leading to clear plot and character developments. From there, the story does not relent, reminding readers that author and artist Tom Siddell is in full control of his comic.

In "Reason", we see our girls growing up. The book starts in the middle of their second year and gradually progresses through to the end. It's through this we see Annie attempting to set aside her shy, somewhat cold persona in an attempt to better socialize (and provide Kat with equal socializing opportunities). We are reintroduced to familiar side characters, watching them grow from mere background cutouts to flesh and blood characters. Favorites return for new adventures as we join Annie in her quests to better understand the Court and its increasingly sketchy history.

In this volume, we see the start of a separation between Annie and Kat, as marked by their respective abilities. Annie learns more about her etheric abilities, developing them from the mere ability to summon a blinker stone through using her stone for trickery, and even applying her etheric abilities in the real world. Her lessons are not limited, though, simply to knowledge of the etheric - Annie learns about friendship, love and even about her own personal heritage. Kat, meanwhile, progresses in the field of robotics and technology. Ever tech-savvy, she continues in her struggle to build Robot the perfect body.

I'm not the typical fan of this type of book, but I got hooked on the Internet version of it right from the beginning. The characters are interesting, the story is intriguing, and the artwork is first class. I own all three of the printed books and will pre-order the next one the moment I'm able to.

I only wish that the Internet version was updated daily instead of 3 times a week. Even then, I'm not sure how the author can produce the artwork - never mind keeping an interesting story line - at that pace.

Read the Internet version. Bookmark this product page first though, because you'll want to come back here to order the book.

Tom Siddell's breathtaking comic is vaulted to new heights in this gorgeous book. I've been a fan of Gunnerkrigg court for years, and this was a pleasure to read.

The story, generally, concerns Antimony, a girl whose past is revealed through the progression of the comic, and her experiences at the peculiar boarding school, Gunnerkrigg Court.

The comic transforms really well to a book from it's original webcomic format. Volume 3 contains many of my favorite moments from this comic, and it's wonderful to see his art style take a huge leap on paper.

The printing is excellent--the pages have a really nice finish: some gloss, but not so much that it looks distracting or shiny.

Of my favorite online comics. I am so glad that I can get a dead tree edition. I have NO idea where this story is going or how it will revolve, but Tom Siddell keeps me stuck to the pages and buying each new one.
