Edward Scissorhands Volume 1: Parts Unknown
Author: Kate Leth
Illustrator: Drew Rausch
Recent Release Date: May 19, 2015

Synopsis: An all-new adventure revisiting Edward Scissorhands' two decades after the end of the fan-favorite movie! In a castle just outside a sleepy suburban town, a brilliant inventor created Edward Scissorhands... but left him tragically unfinished. Two generations of exile have left Edward digging through abandoned experiments, but once he wakes up a creature left buried, he discovers he isn't the only one missing a vital piece. As Edward tries to fix a grave mistake, he comes face-to-face with a teenage girl who was sure he was only myth... despite the stories her grandmother told her about the man she could never touch.


Review: I've always enjoyed the film Edward Scissorhands. It's creepy, but also bright. It's a modern fairy tale. The graphic novel takes place twenty years after the film. A young girl discovered Edward, finally confirming the stories her grandmother had told her. The girl's grandmother is of course, Kim from the film. 

An early invention that was decommissioned by it and Edward's creator has come back to life. This invention does not have Edward's heart. With the help of Kim's granddaughter, Edward tries to find the invention before the city turns into a mob yet again. 

This was an enjoyable graphic novel, but not anything spectacular. I recommend it to fans of the original film, but there really isn't much new in this book to add to the story. I give it a 3/5
