When I recently saw a review of this book from my Goodreads friend Spencer, I knew I had to have it. Only recently have I discovered the greatness that is Neil Gaiman,(through his Sandman series), and now I want to read everything he's written. Luckily, Dark Horse Comics approved my request through Edelweiss and last night I sat down to read it.
I'm not one for YA, but I loved this book. The story is sweet, while at the same time, surprisingly dark. The illustrations, especially those of the troll himself, are absolutely gorgeous. Colleen Doran is the cartoonist/illustrator and she's done some work with Gaiman before on the Sandman series. Together, the two make an unstoppable team.
Troll Bridge is a wonderful story and I highly recommend this graphic novel to everyone, both young and old alike!
