Very impressive Great and Secret Show #1 review, Andy, thanks for that. I know that first issue was very wordy and communicated a lot of information in a short amount of pages, but it was setting up the larger "Show" to come. Things spread out a bit as we go forward (and I'm doing a "Story So Far" recap in each issue to help simplify the previous book's events, too).

As for the story not having any relatable protagonist just yet, issue 1, and 2, to a smaller degree set up the big story, and in issue 3 (which is in stores on May 31), that's when you meet the characters who the reader can actually empathize with, and when the real struggle between good and evil really begins.

Anyway, thanks for the nice words for the work we're doing. I agree with you, that Gabriel is amazing (in issue 3, I ran a little essay that points out some of the hidden symbols and portents that Gabe has worked into his art to give it even more depth and feeling of magic.

Hey there,

Thanks for listening to our show! Very Happy I'm happy to hear that the review pleased you. I certainly enjoyed reading this, and I'm anxious to see where the "great show" leads. I did read issue #2, so I can see where things are spreading out a little bit more. I also appreciated the "story so far" bit at the beginning of the 2nd issue, it helped me have a better grasp of everything.

I wish I had read the original Clive Barker novel so I could have a better appreciation for the adaptation here. It's nice work, though, no doubt. I remember first being intrigued by this book by seeing a 2-3 page promo for it somewhere. I don't remember where i saw it, but there were pics and bios of all the characters involved and it looked rather stunning.

Yeah, Gabriel's pencilwork is amazing.

Keep listening! More than likely, I'll sum up further chapters as the book goes along- not to mention other IDW books!
