I usually love Neil Gaiman's books so I didn't feel worried picking this one up after Beloved. I figured if anyone could hold their own after a masterpiece it should be him. No. Other than an interesting idea (made stronger in the film) this book held nothing for me. It was too simplistic. Maybe it'...

Author: Neil Gaiman Adaptation & Illustration: P. Craig Russell Pages: 186 Wonderful. Whimsical with a slight hint of creepy. Coraline is a bright, adventurous child who doesn't get enough attention from her parents, but she's perfectly capable of occupying her time exploring. There is a cas...

The first fiction book from Gaiman was promising enough to make me look for more of his books.

Another stellar graphic novel by Neil Gaiman, I am starting to be a stalker of this man. I have read the novel of Coraline but as I was volunteering the other day at the library, I came across this graphic novel as I was organizing this section in the children’s department. Neil’s name nice and bold...

I’ve been meaning to read a Neil Gaiman for ages and decided to go with Coraline for my black cat square. It intrigued me and didn’t demand much of a time investment as it’s only roughly 80 pages. Coraline is a dark fairy tale about a little girl who gets bored and decides to go exploring. She pic...
