A librarian blogger in Brooklyn, NY posted a list of the top ten most checked out books at her library, I.S. 68. The Elsewhere Chronicles, Book 1, The Shadow Door is number seven, just slightly out-ranking Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight!
Elsewhere got a great review on Sequential Tart:
Gorgeous and brilliant… The story is absolutely one of the best around… The more I read, the more impressed I am by how vivid an enthralling it all is. It has been wonderfully translated from the original French.
I really enjoyed the art and coloring (and always find it fascinating how many different ways to draw the same thing, namely the human face), and shows the real potential of what kid’s comics can be. I’ve already order the subsequent volumes!
