Eleanor & the Egret (graphic novel) - Paul's REVIEW

*I received this book as an eARC from AfterShock Comics via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Eleanor & The Egret, Vol. 1Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Eleanor & the Egret

Writer: John Layman
Artist: Sam Keith
Recent Release Date: March 13, 2018

Synopsis: The most daring art thief in Paris has struck again, and the police have assigned their best detective to the case. His only clue? A single white feather left at the scene. Could this feather belong to the thief? To the thief's accomplice, an oversized talking egret? Or will his investigation lead him to somewhere even stranger? (Answer: all of the above.)

Presenting a peculiar and unforgettable tale of birds and banditry, paintings and pets, larceny, love and...lamprey-wielding assassins? From the legendary creator of THE MAXX and co-creator of SANDMAN, Sam Kieth, and the considerably less-legendary creator of CHEW, John Layman!


Review: This is an art theft mystery involving a girl and her talking egret. I was confused during most of this book. I had difficulty following everything that was happening. The story is definitely unique and, in a good way, strange. I really liked the art style. 

I give this comic a 3/5. I didn't follow the story that well, but it is definitely a unique story.
