    ''She's not a real girl. She's a ghost.'' ''Then why can we see her?'' ''We can see them. It's humans who can't.'' Sometimes we discover little gems out of nowhere. We, obsessed readers as we are, have experienced this countless times. It is one of the greatest joys of reading.

Sometimes we discover little gems out of nowhere. We, obsessed readers as we are, have experienced this countless times. It is one of the greatest joys of reading. So, three nights ago as I was waiting for the L.A.Clippers game to start, I started browsing Edelweiss and the title ''The Ghost, The Owl'' caught my eye. Yes, well, obviously. Ghosts, owls....This had my name written all over. The only thing that made me hesitate was the fact that comics don't seem particularly appealing to me but the few times I've tried my luck with the genre haven't disappointed me. This beautiful work was no exception. ''...people don't voluntarily help others.'' The ghost of a young girl comes in a swamp. She can't remember anything from her time among the living and a young owl decides to help her discover the reason that caused her death. Naturally, they come across pure, kind-hearted people and despicable human beings who want to destroy everything and everyone that resist their vile advances. The decision of the owl is a violation of the law that forbids any kind of intervention in the lives of the humans and thus, an unusual, beautiful journey begins. I was surprised by how poignant the plot of this comic was. Fellowship, hope, loss, the chance to survive, to defeat the evils in our life, to start again. The notion that, sometimes, you have to cross certain boundaries and ignore restrictions, otherwise you will lose yourself. I was moved and impressed by the beautiful illustrations by Sara Richard. I think they were extremely vivid- almost too vivid- and the dialogue was quite satisfying. There was a modern Gothic touch that brought the whole effort together and created a thoughtful, skillfully artistic comic.  Irrelevant Point n.1 : I was so impressed by this that I felt confident enough to try my luck with another comic titled ''The Lost Path'', a story set in a strange forest. Bring all the Gothic comics to this metalhead.🤘🤘🤘 Irrelevant Point n.2 : This is the review where I disclose my favourite NBA team. Utterly useless information but I feel talkative today.🏀🏀 Many thanks to Action Lab Entertainment and Edelweiss for the ARC in exchange of an honest review.

    This is a really cool story about a ghost suddenly appearing in a swamp. The only animal willing to help is the owl. By doing so, the owl gets to reconnect with a bit of its own past and stop evil. Without spoilers, it's hard to say more about this short but lovely story. Suffice it to say that it's about helping others and not accepting artificial boundaries (the typical "them vs us"). Astonishing about this book is not the story though.

Suffice it to say that it's about helping others and not accepting artificial boundaries (the typical "them vs us"). Astonishing about this book is not the story though. The story was solid althought the reason for the ghost to appear was a bit far-fetched. No, what makes me love this story so much is the setting (the swamp and forest with all the animals) as well as the gorgeous art! I'm not an expert but since I'm an owl lover, I know that not many artists always get owls right, especially when portraying them in motion, but this artist did and it's fantastic! Not to mention that Southern White-Faced Owls are one of my favourite breeds so the book got automatic bonus points. ;) This is a short book but it teaches about compassion and staying true to who you are. I was provided a free copy in exchange for an honest review - you know how it goes.

    I was sent this book as an advanced copy by the publisher via NetGalley for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own. This was a stunning graphic novel with a simple but captivating plot about generosity and how much a single kind act can do. The art is however what's truly magnificent about it.

Published May 8, 2018. A review that I accidentally skipped over - Read March 28. 2018. What a gorgeous book. The illustrations in this short book are simply wonderful. Everything swirls together and runs across the page as it morphs into the next scene. Simply stunning. The story is about helping others - how the owl helps the ghost remember who she is and where she belongs, even after coming in front of the council for speaking with humans. Doing good is the owls purpose in life and due to past favors he is helped by a number of the other animals of the woods. I have to go back to the illustrations in this book. The story tells a parable, but the color and pictures in the book are mesmerizing. They fully cover each page and just flow from scene to scene. The pages bloom right in front of your eyes. Wonderful illustration by Sara Richard.

    It is very simple ghost story. A small girl's ghost playing on the pond, not remembering how she got there. Owl helped her to find the closure and along with that finds adventure of his own. It is rather small story, I read it in 10-15 minutes less. Art is amazing and very beautiful illustrations. It is very simple ghost story.

    A short graphic story about kindness. The narrative is rather ambiguous and underdeveloped, but the illustrations and colors are simply beautiful.

I really thought I was going to be blown away by the art in this graphic novel. The cover has this realistic style contrasted to a more fanciful style that is the ghost. But yeah, I wasn't a fan. The main problem I had was the heavy use of black with what was a fairy tale sort of environment. The two didn't go together and it felt heavy and oppressive even though this was meant to be a story about the power of friendship. I quite liked the owl and his passion for helping the two humans he had contact with... I wanted to root for him and to see him succeed. The ghost girl was drawn in such a way that I wanted to like her too. Why the ghost was there and why the owl ended up helping... their motivations were just not there. I know this is a graphic novel but story craft is still applicable to move events along. The plot was a little simplistic but there was creativity to it. I liked how the characters became connected and and that their actions helped someone in need. If we want children to read this and learn something we've got to go a little deeper, make things a little more specific and not so stereotypical. It's not surprising to me that many YA readers are loving anti-heroes nowadays... and that is because heroes are seen as simple souls who only are motivated because good guys help others. The tension wasn't here for me. It's pretty obvious how this was going to end... And while its not bad, its too simple and too easy. Everyone was so black and white that there was no other outcome possible. We need a little doubt for a story to truly be compelling. I really wish that I loved this story better! It has such creativity... a few missteps in the art and story and it wasn't as powerful a story as I thought it would be. ⋆ ⋆⭐⭐⭐ Authenticity ⋆ ⋆ ⋆⭐⭐ Tension ⋆ ⋆⭐⭐⭐ Plot ⋆ ⋆⭐⭐⭐ Art BOTTOM LINE: With art not to my taste and a simple story I wasn't blow away by this graphic novel...

This has not influenced my opinion. ______________________ You can find this review and many others on my book blog @ Perspective of a Writer.

    Well, I’m going to keep this short and sweet because this was a short and sweet story! It is the story of helping others no matter what. Standing up for what you believe in and going against the wishes of others to lend a helping hand should not be tied to a certain species, if we ignore the plight of others than nothing will ever be solved in the world. And… THIS ARTWORK!!! WHAT CAN I SAY??? WOW! It is truly gorgeous!

    4.5 stars Simple and yet so lovely. "Never underestimate a power of kindness". This is what the book taught me. It's like a reminder to always be kind to others, to help others without expecting anything back. I love this graphic novel a lot. It is short and a bit strange. But I did not expect that I would like it so much. Plus, seriously... the illustration?!

On the whole the plot is a little thin, but this was still a quick and enjoyable read.

    I have some mixed feelings about this one. According to the publisher it's supposed to be for children but I'm not really sure about it. The story seems a bit too heavy and creepy in my opinion. I don't think kids shouldn't read scary stuff - if they like it like I did when I was a kid then sure, why not. But the violence against the woman and the heavy sexual undertones seemed like way too much. On the other hand, it was too underdeveloped to be directed at adults so... I really don't know.

    I picked this graphic novel up on a whim after seeing some of the art online a while ago and thinking it looked gorgeous. Very fable-esque in tone, it centres around an owl helping a ghost to make peace with her life and death, and struggling with the rule that forbids animals from interfering with human lives. Story-wise, it was fine.

Story-wise, it was fine. Things felt a bit rushed and there were a couple of plot holes (even within the context of such a whimsical story), but I did like the allegorical message about overcoming difference so we can stand together against injustice. The highlight was definitely Sara Richard’s art, however. She forgoes traditional panels entirely, the whole thing blending together into one continuously flowing visual narrative. The attention to detail is stunning, and I would certainly seek out more of her work.

    The Ghost, The Owl is an incredibly imaginative graphic novel by Franco and illustrated by Sara Richard. Owl and the other animals in the swamp are going about their day when a ghost appears seemingly out of nowhere. No one has seen her before and she herself can't recall where she came from.

Owl and the other animals in the swamp are going about their day when a ghost appears seemingly out of nowhere. No one has seen her before and she herself can't recall where she came from. Owl decides to take it upon himself to figure out her origins and help her find her way despite the warnings of the other animals.  A mystery begins to unfold involving a young woman in a house by the swamp, a vicious man, and a family forgotten years ago. Despite how short this book is (around 50 pages) there's a surprising amount of complexity to Owl's character. We learn he is a fearless defender of the defenseless and he has a history of selfless acts among the animals in the swamp. When the Parliament, a group of owls who rule over the swamp demand that the ghost is to be ignored, Owl risks life and limb to get to the bottom of the mystery anyway. The story seamlessly flows together in a wispy (ghostly), art style that is both a pleasure to read and to look at. As far as graphic novels go, this is a hidden gem and I couldn't be more pleased to add it to my own personal collection.

    ”Helping is what is necessary. It shouldn’t matter whom or what you are helping.” This is easily the most beautiful story I’ve ever read. The Artwork is so whimsical, and lovely. From the very first page I was mesmerized and brought into a new world. I loved the details from the huge landscape pages, to the close-up detailed pages.

    The artwork was beautiful! It's a story about a girl and an owl trying to find out who she is. I read this in about 10 minutes and I think it would be nice for more stories, but they could be longer. The artwork was beautiful! It's a story about a girl and an owl trying to find out who she is.
