The mood of The Hunt is very dark and horror-like, and if you love Irish mythology, this one is a treat with it plumbing the darker undertones of those myths. It brings in the changelings as they walk among us, hidden but still dangerous, and not visible to everyone. Orla and her grandmother definitely have some spiritual powers, as they are able to cast spells, but nothing explains the netherworld's connections to the family, yet. Along with this paranormal element, another concurrent storyline is that of the cops (or at least one cop in particular) investigating the strange events in their family, and the multiple disappearances of Orla throughout the years, and now the disappearance of her younger brother. The latter is important because he is a secret of Orla's and her grandmother's, as they did something that was hidden from the netherworld. Basically, it has a multi-layered arc and a pervasive sense of danger that hovers.
As for the artwork, it is one of the best I have come across for a graphic novel of this length. It is beautifully rendered and detailed, and the whimsical strokes of the fairies and the harsh and cruel deformities of the changelings and the Slaugh are both crafted wonderfully. Even the human parts of the story are done with loving detail, and some scenes just awed me with their lineart. It is, overall, very dark in the book all the time, though, so I can never figure out if it is day or night *laughs*. In any case, the artwork definitely has me in love and even though I usually prefer stories like these in prose (as they would be more detailed), I feel it works in this medium too.
Overall, a very interesting urban fantasy story with some delightfully dark artwork. If only some elements of the plot and the backstories were better explained, this book would have been perfect.
This graphic novel is set in modern day but deals with evil fae that suck the souls from sick humans. It’s a very dark and somewhat gory story. However I really enjoyed the fae mythology in here and enjoyed the horror themed spin on it all.
The illustration is amazing, I especially loved the scenes in the fairy realm. The colors are rich and beautiful and the graphic novel is easy to follow.
Things are left kind of open ended but the main storyline is tied up. It would be great to see future graphic novels set in this world.
Overall I really liked this. This was a well done blend of horror and fae mythology. I would recommend to those who enjoy fantasy horror graphic novels.
Received an advance copy from Image and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
With clear illustrations, this mystery story is well worth a look. It's gripping and engaging stuff. I think that this is a one-off collection rather than a series. I hope so as the ending should be a final one.
