Book Description via Goodreads:
I cannot tell you how excited I was to find this graphic novel. I absolutely adore Edward Scissorhands. It was one of my favorite movies growing up and it still is as an adult. Opening this book was a nice little sense of nostalgia. I think this is a comic that all fans of the movie will enjoy.
What I absolutely loved about this comic is the artwork. It's absolutely gorgeous! It has the dark, dreary Tim Burton-esque feel that we all know and love, but is given an almost adorable face lift. It all looks a little more cartoonish and approachable. It came to life on the page and did a great job of bringing both familiar and new characters to life and conveying a story.
The story, for me, is where this book was lacking. It takes place in the future from the movie that we all know and talks about Kim's granddaughter. It's a very sweet story that I enjoyed reading, but it came off as predictable and a bit one-dimensional.
Overall, it's worth reading, especially if you're as big of a fan of the Edward Scissorhands movie as I am. The artwork is absolutely fantastic, and brings to life the more lacking story-line.
I was provided this book in exchange for my honest review.
