This volume doesn't try to match the impossibly high emotional standards of the previous one. It goes for weird instead. You know things will be different when the usual period newspapers have been replaced by dramatic art.
There are five stories, and shockingly, three are drawn by different artists. It is unusual to see our familiar world rendered in such a diverse way. This change is appropriate, particularly for the more fantastical feel of one concerning fairies. It all feels positive.
There are also different time periods at work too and you have to mentally store some things for later. The last story is very dramatic and you get the sense things are building to an unpleasant climax. It does get a bit hectic as new ideas are introduced and details you might have forgotten resurface.
But you will definitely have to get the next volume after reading this. A compulsive Thumbs Up!
