Reviews Penny Dreadful

  • Nicole
    Reading this for this Holiday Adventureathon Challenge: presents: read a book you received as a gift.Love love loved this show when it was on. So sad when it ended. So you cannot imagine how happy I was when I saw one of the shows producers what going to continue the series via books. And a graphic novel so it’s like watching the show again! Can’t wait to see where this goes! It’s gonna be awesome!

    Really good!
  • Marieke
    This was SIGNIFICANTLY better than the prequel graphic novel. It actually invoked some of the feelings that the TV series gave me and was deliciously dark and gruesome. It has restored my faith in the continuation of the story through graphic novels!

    As a massive fan of this tv show, this ongoing series was a welcome addition to the very frustrating ending of the series. It was a shame that it ended, it clearly had more legs and potential but the network pulled it and that's a shame. Fortunately, the continuation and (pre-story also) are now continued in graphic novel form. Hope this continues.

    Volume 2 picks up where the series ended. If you loved the Showtime series, then the graphic novels will surely fill that longing for more Dreadfuls.

    I loved this show. I love this series.

    Ok folks! This is the Season 4 us diehard fans never got but desperately wanted! Season 3 ended tragically with the death of Vanessa Ives at Ethan Chandler’s regretful hands. It was too sudden, too abrupt, with so much set up for the next season already. Fortunately producer/writer Chris King has come to the rescue! Apparently he loves the show as much as we do, and The Awaking picks up six months after we left our band of distraught heroes. Mr...

    I binge watched all of Penny Dreadful when I was sick with a feverish cold one week, so I have some very vivid memories of this show. I was insanely disappointed in how it ended, especially seeing the character of Vanessa Ives gutted to fit the gothic ending the creators wanted. This graphic novel picks up where the series left off, and stays mostly true to the personalities created in the show. They know everyone is really reading to see Vanessa...

    I really loved this continuation of Penny Dreadful. No matter what is said in the interviews, there were more stories to be told nd the comics flesh out what could have been.After Vanessa's death, Ethan is haunted by her spirit as well as coping with the monster he has literally become. While he is seeking help controlling the beast, Malcolm and Lyle must content with a new villain that is unleased from an Egyptian dig.The lines and coloring are ...

    Six months after the conclusion of the tv show, evil still won't leave our heroes alone. Older, wiser, but more wearied, they must reassemble yet again to face the twin evils of the Dragon and the Devil.It's not bad. It's not as lush as the show at its hallucinogenic best, but for what can be done with ink on a page (as opposed to moving images and soundscapes), it captures the feel pretty well. The pace drags a little in the flashbacks (which co...

    Excellent direct sequel to the tv series and written by the co-producer. The book involves the risen mummy Belial and a group of satanists bent on bringing Lucifer out of Hell to reside in Vanessa's body. Plenty of amazing illustrated horror action. I very highly recommend this graphic novel to all fans of Penny Dreadful.
