[Graphic Novel Review] Edward Scissorhands Volume 2: Whole Again

Graphic Novel Review of Edward Scissorhands Volume 2: Whole Again

I'm so happy that I was able to read this second volume so close to the first. If you can, I highly recommend getting your hands on both and binge reading them!

Missed my review of the first volume? No worries!

by Kate Leth, illustrated by Drew Rausch


Book synopsis:
After settling in with Megs and her family, Edward becomes curious about a television "miracle doctor" named April Wells, and enlists the help of friends and townspeople to send her a homemade audition tape. While Megs struggles with her uncertainty about the whole situation, Edward has a quiet hope that, maybe, she could help him.


My thoughts: 
Just like volume one, I enjoyed the simple and straightforward plot. The artwork remained the same with all of it's lovely strangeness.

In this volume, I really enjoyed that we learned a bit more about Megan's mom and why she is so bitter toward her mother, Kim Boggs. The use of flashbacks was a great touch, but I do wish they had just a little bit of context. 

I found the tone in this one to be much more creepy, which I really enjoyed! However, most of it was still upbeat and fun.

My final thoughts:
I would definitely recommend giving this one a read after you check out Volume 1. I gave this volume four stars!

  2. Love the artwork, but have to admit I still haven't seen the movie it's based on.

    1. The movie is one of my all time favorites! :) Though if you wanted to dive into the books before seeing the movie, that would be totally fine in this case. You wouldn't feel like you were missing anything because the two aren't very closely related. Just Edward is the same character :)
