I wasn't even sure I would give this five stars. For several days I had to force myself to read it. But something happened and I don't even know how to explain it. Firstly, I am totally enamored of the illustrations. This is huge since I am not a comic book or graphic novel reader. It's definitely the first time stunning illustrations have influenced my rating. Then there's the last story, which blew me away and left me wishing it had been a full novel. And finally there's the fact that reading this was reminiscent of the few times I've read Gaiman. Sometimes you're confused, sometimes you're not even sure even sure you completely get it
, but always you're cognizant of the fact you're in the presence of something truly special and unique.
