I didn't hesitate to buy this collection when I found out it had been released and I am delighted I did. A good collection well printed on good paper and an absolute joy.
A hidden gem from 2000AD's vaults, it's great to see The Journal of Luke Kirby receive some well-deserved attention from the publisher with this collected edition. John Ridgway's art is truly bewitching, able to transport the reader to an idyllic countryside whilst Alan McKenzie's words capture that feeling of coming-of-age perfectly. Steve Parkhouse's work in the later stories emphasises the darker tones that fester beneath this nostalgic setting, providing further sense of maturity as Luke embraces his destiny. Subverting the “boy wizard” trope in the only way 2000AD can, The Journal of Luke Kirby is a wonderful slice of bildungsroman goodness that rewards its readers with some truly magical storytelling. Collected here in its entirety, the series remains a perfect example of the unbridled creativity that pours out of 2000AD on a regular basis.
