The overall view of this graphic novel is interesting, it is based upon the Alice Cooper-esque cental character, the showman, and has an obviously link to his music. This should be of no suprise when you consider that Cooper had considerable in put to the finished artical.
As a novel in it's own right it is limited in storyline and seems to finish before it really gets started, even though the graphics are intriguing in their gothic representation of one of rocks most macarbe characters.
It indulges the Cooper fans who understand some of the musical links and the links to the character names but, as a piece of work in its own right, it seems to have lost in the translation from promotional comic books to collected novel.
Although it is enjoyable, it is not the kind of graphic novel that you will choose to read over and over again, but in saying this it is recommended to any Alice Cooper fans who did not manage to complete the collection of single promotional comics.
