I know, I know what you’re thinking. Kat, you don’t READ graphic novels. Unless you’ve been following me on Instagram that is. In which case, you’ll already know that I have fallen down the proverbial rabbit hole. Except this one hasn’t let me to wonderland. Nope. It’s lead me to comixology land. Why didn’t someone tell me about this sorcery?!? Okay okay so…I went in the deep end and requested Bone Parish from Netgalley.
Bone Parish Vol. 1
Published by BOOM! Studios
Published on May 7th 2019
First, I must warn you that this is equal parts graphic (no pun intended) and gory. It is also beautiful and stunning. Okay okay, I know. My descriptive words are …. lacking and mostly generalized. So let’s try this:
Bone Parish is about a new drug that’s made its debut and the family behind it. A girl whose discovered how to make a hallucinogen from dead bodies, the people who use the drug and the fight to control the money and the drugs. Typical of drug crime, except for how it’s made and what people are seeing while high on it.
The biggest draw to this was the art. The colors are absolutely stunning. I loved the way that you can follow the timeline of the story simply by noticing what colors are being used. The story itself was compelling. I kept reading to figure out what in the heck was actually happening. And when it ended? Crap. I need more. Like right now please.
I will be keeping my eye out for more volumes and this is one I would love to have a physical copy of.
Thank you to netgalley and boom! Studios for providing me with a copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
As always, until next time (there are more graphic novel reviews to come)
