Reviews

"Grimoire Noir is beautiful. So dark and magical and moving." --Lev Grossman, New York Times bestselling author of The Magicians

"Featuring a grayscale palette with striking daubs of color, the art is wonderfully atmospheric. Characters are impeccably styled with a keen sartorial eye...brooding gothic fare brimming with style. "--Kirkus

"An unusual, tense, and deeply atmospheric world full of stylish characters and forbidding places." --Publishers Weekly

"Murky scenes in black, gray, and subtle touches of luminous color add to the noir mood, while floating curlicues and dusky shadows give it an unmistakable macabre-fantasy feel." --Booklist

"This would be an interesting step up for fans of Ostertag's The Witch Boy or a treat for graphic novel readers seeking a dark supernatural mystery." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
