Format: Hardcover
From the beginning, Desperado and IDW deserve praise for this beautiful edition of Mnemovore. Oversized with expanded special features, the hardcover does great justice to artist Mike Huddleston's pages. Huddleston, who has recently done exemplary work on Robert Venditti's Homeland Directive from Oni Press and Joe Casey's series Butcher Baker from Image Comics, displays his diversity here with a much more relaxed, cartoony style as opposed to the highly rendered, painted cover work that adorned the original miniseries and now serve as chapter markers. An extremely detailed sketchbook of Huddleston's illustrations accompany the narrative, alongside a gallery of Mnemovore-inspired pin-ups by artists Cameron Stewart, Enrique Breccia, Camilla D'Errico, Ray Fawkes, Frazer Irving, and Guy Davis. If this were not enough, Fawkes includes a history of the series that traces its evolution and development, as well as a newly written epilogue illustrated by Huddleston.

As far as the story goes, Mnemovore is a classic mixture of horror and mystery genres as the protagonist, Kaley Markowic, suffers a career- and nearly life-ending injury that leaves her an amnesiac. During her recovery and attempts to rebuild her shattered memory with the aid of her family, her boyfriend, and her friends, an unknown threat emerges in the guise of a snail or wormlike creature assaulting everyone close to Kaley. When the tentacled monster turns its attention to her, she begins to question her very reality and the intentions of those closest to her. When the Mnemovore spreads beyond her inner circle and begins expanding its influence to others, Kaley must sacrifice more than her already broken memories in an ending that is only complicated even more by the addition of Fawkes and Huddleston's new epilogue.

Format: Hardcover
The art in this book is really very solid, and beautifully inked in a luscious manner. The little mnemovore (say that one three times fast) creatures look very cool. And the concept, of memory eating creatures going around getting people but can't get the girl with amnesia, also very cool.

But the author clearly didn't know what to do beyond that. Pretty much the entire book consists of Kaley roaming around town, finding friends and family to be a dick to for a while, only to later stumble onto a mnemovore trying to have a meal. This theme is repeated so often that you begin to feel like the mnemovore's should get an apology, a sort of "Oh, I'm sorry I've interrupted you five hundred times eating someones head without advancing the plot any."

Anyway, all this leads up to a pretty hard to swallow encounter with a monster and an ax, which I won't spoil it with details for you. It's an ok graphic novel, definitely not terrible, and probably worth it for the 1 cent prices that a lot of people are selling theirs for used on here. 100% not worth it for the $25 price tag listed on the back of the hardcover edition.

What if they were taken away? What if they were being stolen? What if you could see what was feasting on them? A gripping, page-turning tale of horror and suspense! One hell of a ride!!!
