Subhuman Sanctum Book One

I really like the way this one is told. Characters are fun and strange at the same time.

Twilight Lady #1
by Colin T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/20/2012 20:52:27

Uneven, but by the end I'm intrigued enough to want to read more.The art is pretty good aside from occasional iffy rendering and some unrealistic looking chests. Ther story features occasional clunky dialogue ("Who...Who the hell are you?" "Hell...how appropriate*.") and an eye-rolling stock scene (the 2 women's encounter with hoodlums), but there's a nice human feel to some of the conversations. We're shown enough of the supernatural element to catch interest but not enough to know what's really going on yet, so I feel reasonably satisfied but want to read more (as is appropriate for an intro). The larger story might live up to its promise or fall to its weaknesses, but I'm interested enough to find out which.

Twilight Lady Volume II
by Seppo K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/09/2012 08:31:48

Twilight Lady 2: Oblivion Symphony continues the story from “The Disappeared”, so if you haven’t read the previous Twilight Lady stories, read them first. If you liked them, you will like this. Check my reviews.

Here big things start to happen. This is a wild and deep journey. We learn much more about Subrealm and its weird, humorous and scary creatures. The most surprising thing is that trolls are fun! Meantime, all is not well in Senserealm. In summary, the road to hell is paved with good intentions …and accelerated by fanatics and newbies.

I really enjoyed this. In my opinion, this is not only the best Twilight Lady story so far, but probably the best urban fantasy story I have ever read. Everything comes together beautifully. This is high-quality stuff, a masterpiece in illustration, character design, dialogue, storytelling and worldbuilding. Blake Chen, I admire your imagination.

Twilight Lady 1.5: Tall Tales
by Seppo K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/16/2011 07:36:25

Read my review of Twilight Lady Volume 1: Demon Corridor if you want to know what kind of comic this is. Although this is not a numbered volume, you can think this as Volume 1.5. I recommend you to read Volume 1 first.

The three stories here can be read in any order. Below are some spoiler-free comments.

“Peace Time”: This is a humorous character study. Once again the characters are believable because their motivations are made clear. Tight writing. Chen's art keeps improving.

“The Disappeared”: The main story from Volume 1 continues here. Macabre and brutal can be beautiful. Humorous twists with non-humorous and twisted bad guys. Who is the biggest bad guy? The ending was surprising and therefore good. Art is “cinematic”; this could work well as a movie.

“Twilight Lady Sings the Blues”: This story feels non-canonical. I don’t fully understand it and its implications, so I keep my mouth shut. Art is OK, although Jen looks very different. In my opinion, Chen himself is the best illustrator for this comic. Others are not spooky enough.

My conclusion: Two of the stories are excellent and one is OK. This is an essential volume for those who are interested in the adventures of the mysterious Lady.

Twilight Lady Volume I
by Seppo K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/13/2011 18:01:47

What a pleasant surprise, dear.

Twilight Lady is the best urban fantasy comic book I have read for a long time. If you like Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, you probably like this. In my opinion, Gaiman has not written anything this good for ages.

Blake Chen has created an original universe that is full of suspense, sense of wonder, and surprises. The continuing story is simply brilliant. It unfolds in the right pace and is full of twists. It is very difficult to predict what is going to happen next. The characters are believable and likeable. Each have their goals and justifications for their actions, so it is not simply good vs. evil. Art may first seem somewhat stiff, but it gets better and also helps to create a creepy atmosphere. There is also humor which is sometimes subtle, sometimes macabre, and sometimes something that only the reader sees.

Just try Twilight Lady. You will be sucked into another world. This is the first volume and the beginning of a great journey.
