I just don't know where to begin with this graphic novel. It's wonderful and frightening.Echoes is the story of a man who goes crazy and the disappearance of a little girl. It's possible he did it or that he knows who did it. Filled with hallucinations and odd memories, we follow his path, never knowing what the truth is.It's such a simple story but I think it's one that will stay with me a long time. You root for the main character and yet are horrified that you might be rooting for a monster.It's confusing and wonderful. I have a bit of a hard time with black and white art just because my eyes have some problems but this one wasn't as difficult as others have been. The art is soft and disturbing.I, almost, want to see it as a movie because it could be a great one but then I hate to ruin the integrity of what Joshua Hale Fialkov has done.If you like horror, pick this one up. If you like a good thriller. It's not violent or graphic but it is frightening.
Presented here is the incredibly sad and creepy tale of mental illness and evil. Those are mutually exclusive here as the mental illnesses here aren't exploited just displayed to the nth degree. Both Fialkov and Ekedal handle the topic well. The book starts in a direction and then moves in another one while keeping the reader on edge. The art is beautifully done and the lack of color isn't a bad thing. Overall a very good book.
Black and white serial killer story – or is it? A man suffering from some kind of mental illness is told by his dying father to find a box under the floor in an abandoned house. There he finds evidence of his father’s misdeeds. Will he follow in his father’s path? When as little girl goes missing, is he to blame or is he being set up? Quite engaging and with a good assortment of twists and turns. Lovers of horror comics (like the old Steve Ditko ones) will like this.
