This review is from: City of Glass: Graphic Novel (Paperback)
This is a poor adaptation of a metaphysical novel. The confusing nature of the source material is part of the problem. Much of it is just illustrating the text, which is a weak way of telling a story, and at times the chosen images are just too clunkily literal. It does have some good artistic ideas, but the overall effect is wasted. It's annoying this was hailed as an example of a comic as literature (is that just because it's an illustrated version of a novel?) when there are great 'true' comics out there.
