After settling in with Megs and her family, Edward becomes curious about a television "miracle doctor" named April Wells, and enlists the help of friends and townspeople to send her a homemade audition tape. While Megs struggles with her uncertainty about the whole situation, Edward has a quiet hope that, maybe, she could help him.
I am loving this comic! (5 stars)
I really enjoyed the first Edward Scissorhands gaphic novel so I was hoping the second would be on par. I'd dare say I liked it even better. It's really great to see the Burton easter eggs hidden in the illustrations and I feel like the art overall fits the tone of the film even more closely than before. I love the new characters and while I feel like Edward was almost a secondary character this time around I can't help but give this a very strong recommendation. I can hardly stand the wait for the next volume!
While you would benefit from reading Volume 1 first so you'll know the characters and time frame, you could certainly jump in here and still enjoy the story for what it is. Just be sure to jump back later so you know why this story is happening.
