    Snyder s prose, something that we see only in tiny bits and pieces in some of his works, gets a significant number of pages in After Death Mixed with Lemire s watercolor based art and his trademark themes of loneliness and separation between lovers, After Death gives its readers a truly unique experience.This book is not for everybody I myself took a great effort to read the prose part, itching to get back again at the comic sections The fault is clearly on my part for not seeing the beauty i Snyder s prose, something that we see only in tiny bits and pieces in some of his works, gets a significant number of pages in After Death Mixed with Lemire s watercolor based art and his trademark themes of loneliness and separation between lovers, After Death gives its readers a truly unique experience.This book is not for everybody I myself took a great effort to read the prose part, itching to get back again at the comic sections The fault is clearly on my part for not seeing the beauty in those words.Book two has so much backstory in it This issue bridges many gaps that has been left by the previous one, explaining what happened before death , where they are now and why the protagonist is dead serious about the listening mission Many elements are still left untouched though, things which might be fully explained in the last volume.After Death asks the readers for its trust and confidence, like believe that there s something important in that cow which for some weird reason annoys me too much I just hope that the payoff will be satisfying in the last book

    I m loving rediscovering the artistry of comics graphic novels It s helping me that Snyder includes a lot of text I m not sure if the gaps are things I ve missed, things still to come, or flaws in the story So I ll wait for the third book to make a final review of the series as a whole In the meantime, I m diggin this.

    A medium defying book Beautiful prose and evocative art with bits of comics pages interspersed This was a joy to read I love the ideas that are played with in this book and can t wait for the conclusion to be revealed.

    In book two we getinformation about Jonah s troubled past before he took the cure for aging and his dissatisfaction with being immortal These are just really interesting books Once the whole series is out, I may reread the 3 so I can getof an idea about the time frame of each individual scene as a lot of this is told out of order Good ideas that make me think in these.
