Penny Dreadful: The Awaking Reviews

  • Sara Witte

    I loved this show. I love this series.

    Six months after the conclusion of the tv show, evil still won't leave our heroes alone. Older, wiser, but more wearied, they must reassemble yet again to face the twin evils of the Dragon and the Devil.

    It's not bad. It's not as lush as the show at its hallucinogenic best, but for what can be done with ink on a page (as opposed to moving images and soundscapes), it captures the feel pretty well. The pace drags a little in the flashbacks (which could easily have several pages shorter, since it's

    It's not bad. It's not as lush as the show at its hallucinogenic best, but for what can be done with ink on a page (as opposed to moving images and soundscapes), it captures the feel pretty well. The pace drags a little in the flashbacks (which could easily have several pages shorter, since it's painfully obvious how they will turn out and their function is almost purely expository), but all in all, this is a great new beginning.

  • Bob Meracle

    Excellent direct sequel to the tv series and written by the co-producer. The book involves the risen mummy Belial and a group of satanists bent on bringing Lucifer out of Hell to reside in Vanessa's body. Plenty of amazing illustrated horror action. I very highly recommend this graphic novel to all fans of Penny Dreadful.

  • Castle Spooktacular

    Really good!

  • Maureen

    Volume 2 picks up where the series ended. If you loved the Showtime series, then the graphic novels will surely fill that longing for more Dreadfuls.

  • Mark Farley

    As a massive fan of this tv show, this ongoing series was a welcome addition to the very frustrating ending of the series. It was a shame that it ended, it clearly had more legs and potential but the network pulled it and that's a shame. Fortunately, the continuation and (pre-story also) are now continued in graphic novel form. Hope this continues.
