Review: “Shadow Show” by Neil Gaiman et al.

Thumbs up for Shadow Show: Stories In Celebration of Ray Bradbury by Neil Gaiman et al. Fantasy/graphic novel.

You would expect a collection of graphic stories in tribute to Ray Bradbury to be diverse, poetic, weird, and sometimes horrific. You would be so right. You would think that, being a collection, some of the pieces would be great and some would be pretty ho-hum. You would be wrong. They are all really damn good.

“I worry I was keeping [the stories] alive. I think it’s God’s fault. God can’t be expected to remember everything. Perhaps he delegates things, just goes, ‘You! I want you to remember the dates of The Hundred Years’ War. And you, you remember Jack Benny…'”
—from “The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury” by Neil Gaiman
