I agree with the amazon.com reviews, after reading and collecting all the Gloomcookie volumes I have to say that this is the weakest both in terms of art and narrative, the ending is totally dissapointing and a total cop out. The first graphic novel is the best, they slowly go downhill and this is a terrible culmination. I won't spoil anything but it leaves you feeling that it was a rush to the finish and that all characterisation previously goes out of the window in favour of a neat ? ending ? Really, who cares about the irritating beyond belief moon raven and vermillion? Buy the other four and make up your own ending, you'll feel a lot less short changed.
