Impressions:  I have become interested in reading graphic novels to see if they appeal to my liking.  This book is a fast read and is an interesting read.  There are some talk about it becoming a movie starring Hugh Jackman.  The humor, action, and romance is an attention grabber for the reader.  It is a fun read that teach the reader a lesson about themselves.  This supernatural graphic novel is exciting.  It is filled with different illustrations that TeNapel enhances that engages the reader.

Library Use:  This book can be used as a marketing because of some upcoming news events have posted that this maybe book is in development of production.  It can be used in a library bulletin board along with other books that are movies are upcoming movies.  It can be read or suggested as popular graphic novels.
