  1. I agree ( I was really going to start with that line before I read Mr. Bookstooge’s comment, so I’ll just leave it there, you can whack me with a newspaper later ) that the art style is messy. I’m a sucker for clean lines and consistency, even with the thicknesses, etc, looks like the story saved it for you, then, Lashaan?

    By the way, how many books you stacking up over there in Canada, I really hope a tsundoku avalanche doesn’t happen for our sake’s downstairs here in USA. 😜

    1. Hahahaah no worries. It’s good to know that we’re not alone to hate them dolls! And yes, the artwork isn’t absolutely bad but it sometimes just hits all the wrong chords on my end. The story just makes that art style work for what it is.

      Oh, but, you see, I own a Batcave and, alongside my Batcomputer and my Batmobile, my Batlibrary can hold an unlimited amount of books. No way are you getting any kind of avalanche from my end! You should worry more about your fellow American fellows out to wreak havoc amidst the inauguration of your new president and whatnot! 😛

  2. “Entertainingly mundane.” Now that’s an interesting description! 🙂 I suppose there is a reason so many horror movies have used dolls as part of the story. Clowns have been that way for me, too, ever since reading It when it came out.

    1. Hahaha it’s not exceptional but it was a fun read. I think it could’ve been better if it had a different art style to go with it, a different narrative structure, or even more issues to better develop the characters. And yes. Clowns are awesome. Not surprising when I adore the Joker in his most insane moods! 😀 It, at least the new movie version, had a solid fear factor to his character. I still need to read the book someday though. 😮
