Review: The Good Neighbors: Kith by Holly Black

The Good Neighbors: Kith
Author: Holly Black and Ted Naifeh
Publication: GRAPHIX; 1 edition (October 1, 2009)
Description: Rue Silver's life is not what it appears to be. Her mother is a faerie, and has been taken back to the faerie realm. As Rue goes to bring her back, she must travel deep into an inhuman world. At the same time, the faerie realm is venturing into our world too, and taking its toll on those Rue loves. When her grandfather's plans threaten Rue's city, she realizes that she's the only one who can stop him. But is Rue a human or a faerie? Where does she fit? How does she know the difference between love and enchantment?
My Thoughts: This one was a little hard for me to read. I had a hard time telling the characters apart in the drawings. The drawing were nice and scary. I liked the details in the drawings. I still don't think that I am really a big fan of graphic novels. I think it is incredibly hard to tell any sort of a story in the few words that are allowed in graphic novels. The art was nice but, for me, the story bordered on the incoherent.
