The Facts In The Case Of The Departure Of Miss Finch by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a graphic novel adaption of a short story by Neil Gaiman.This is one of those fourth wall stories where Neil himself is part of the story.
While in London,working on a script, the main character (never actually referred to as Neil but has an uncanny resemblance) gets a call from two friends asking him to join them as they entertain a friend.This event more from obligation than desire and they are hoping his addition to the party will make it more enjoyable. The woman, as both deny sheis no fried is Miss Finch.She is quite quarrelsome and complaining. The four find themselves at a unique circus below the streets of London. They enter room upon room of strange attractions including a room that has a uniqe effect on Miss Finch.
This book shows how wonderfully books and short stories can be adapted to the graphic novel style. Michael Zulli's art and Todd Klein's lettering and script adaption are very well done. There is a lushness of color and black and white that really reflects the the mood of the story. A very enjoyable read.
