Now the tale continues with Ghost Stories the second volume in a trilogy of graphic novels set in a fictionalized version of Lemire's hometown of Essex County OntarioGhost Story follows the lives and relationship of brothe. The last collection was a uick enough read so I decided to keep reading Why the hell notFavoring a vaster array of verbiage and a higher ratio of words to images to match Lemire has managed to craft a tale that is superior to its predecessor Where the last was unapologetic in its desolation Ghost Stories manages to take that same sadness and build it into something far complex and human Fiercely inverting the nostalgia for the days of yore the present plays host to a series of torturous memories that haunt our protagonist for over a hundred pagesMelting the present into the past and the past into the present makes for a memorable techniue that is effective as it is inducing an emotional connection between the reader and the text With a cornucopia of fictional newspaper clippings and photographs this decidedly unreal story can feel phenomenally real to the touch Your heart could very well burst in regards to the sheer humanity withinYet as much growth and aged experience applied within various flaws break down a particularly stellar first half Most likely do to decisions made by the publisher the length of Ghost Stories well exceeds it’s sweet spot Passing it’s own marker of maximum effectiveness there is an uneven slope toward diminishing returns that is flummoxed by focusing on an erstwhile ancillary in its second half Becoming too complex it can become confusing to keep various details coherent and understandable Overplaying its hand the good becomes overloaded with a disappointing level of overreach that exceeds its own vision Not uite a case of too many cooks spoiling broth but the converse holds true here With the broth oversaturated the series’ ostensible lo fiminimalist becomes abrogated at best and debased at worstEnjoy the first half for what it is
