Dying Breath: 3.5 out of 5
Welcome to The Manor, a web comic that has so much promise and fun in its first collection that I already want more. One thing that this book does right, is finishing a short within a single strip. That is not to say that 2 strips won’t go together, but most are self-contained, and work. Another thing I have to look at this particular book is how the artwork is works within a style that is not a typical comic book, and I like it. It is a simple comic strip illustrators style and it works on that level. Facial expressions shine and so does the body language on the cast, but I do feel it can be a little more polished. The writing is great at times being full of humor, horror and real life moments, however this cast is based on the creators friends, so at times things do come across as inside jokes. The dialogue though is on point, because nothing comes across as forced or out-of-place. Overall I liked this first collection of The Manor. Sure I could see its growing pains, but that is how things work themselves out over time. Well worth the read for any Indie fan, but it may take some getting used to for a mainstream fan. I like it and that is what matters.
