    Berenice meets someone who will change the course of her life. Emmy meets Hestor's family and by extension her family as well. Her family all have powers of their own and intend to force her to follow along with the family plan whether she likes it or not. Cullen Bunn has created a fantastic back story and a bunch of new antagonists that I'm sure will have repercussions in future volumes. Tyler Crook's art continues to impress. I love the double page spread water colors. The only knock is that Cr Berenice meets someone who will change the course of her life. Emmy meets Hestor's family and by extension her family as well.

I love the double page spread water colors. The only knock is that Crook doesn't draw two of the issues and he is sorely missed. Received a review copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

    Collects #9 - #16 (volume 3 & 4), in which a stranger to Emmy comes to town, we get to see more of Count's African Americans, Emmy gets an ally; and Elly finds family? Reading this second Library volume it's quite evident what is wrong with this series, almost every reveal comes as someone relates a story, as opposed to actual reveals in the plotting. It all feels like exposition overload, interspersed by linear dialogue. Just about a 6 out of 12, for the constructed reality and the promise, the Collects #9 - #16 (volume 3 & 4), in which a stranger to Emmy comes to town, we get to see more of Count's African Americans, Emmy gets an ally; and Elly finds family?

    This is such a good series. The plot is intriguing, the art is fantastic, and the world feels so fleshed out (even if we only get it in bits and pieces). Would highly recommend this series!

    "Some might say Harrow County was founded on some unwholesome earth. It was this understanding that the dirt beneath your feet was tainted that caused folks to step a litte carefully...to glance over their shoulders, certain that someone—or something—was following them...and to watch the shadows with mounting dread. For if the very earth was poisoned by abnormal things, what strange life might take root there?" While this one was a slower burn and not as tight and exciting as the firs "Some might say Harrow County was founded on some unwholesome earth.

For if the very earth was poisoned by abnormal things, what strange life might take root there?" While this one was a slower burn and not as tight and exciting as the first volume, I really enjoyed the further expansion of the history of the county, steeped in old town folklore, the horrors that exist below the surface, and how connected Emmy is to all of it. And it was cool to see further character development in Bernice and the Skinless Boy. While the writing is good, the art by Tyler Crook (presented here in all it's oversized deluxe Library Edition glory) is still the star of the book and when he's replaced briefly you really miss his work in those issues, which also happened to be the weakest ones.

    Revisiting this spooky series just in time for Halloween season, and I’m enjoying it in these gorgeous collected editions even more than I did when I was reading it as an ongoing. Definitely the best thing I’ve read from Cullen Bunn, and Tyler Crook is an absolute revelation with his incredible hand-painted artwork.

    Серія пішла трохи в інше русло, але мені однаково все подобається. Зокрема, в цій бібліотечці можна умовно виокремити дві лінії: Береніс знаходить своє покликання (ця арка чи не найкраща тут), а Еммі знайомиться зі сім'єю, тобто такими ж обдарованими й талановитими як вона. Щодо останнього, то усі члени сім'ї продумані й прописані блискуче, які спокійно можуть отримати окремі спін-оффи за умови розширення світу.

Щодо останнього, то усі члени сім'ї продумані й прописані блискуче, які спокійно можуть отримати окремі спін-оффи за умови розширення світу. Мені найбільш сподобалась зустріч у кукурудзяному полі, яка так добре підкреслює усе, що стосується southern gothic, й водночас створює якусь власну, незвичну ауру. Також цікавою є невеличка історія про хлопчика-без-шкіри, який тепер вже сприймається повноцінним персонажем. Усе це сповнено атмосферними, містичними елементами, які блискуче виконані Тайлером Круком. Художник не перестає виписувати кожен дрібний елемент місцевості завдяки акуратному використанні лаконічних ліній та акварелі, але найбільш мене вражає те, як він вдало передає потік (flow) історії завдяки візуальному ряду. Це помітно наприкінці цього тому в тонні додаткових матеріалів, де також показано структуру й логіку будування панелей. Щодо інших художників, які намалювали дві частини в цій книзі, то вони непогано впорались із завданням, хоча й нічого феноменального не зробили. Також потішили додаткові історії у кінці, написані самим Тайлором Круком. Виявляється, що він не тільки геніальний художник, але й наратор, тому раджу обов'язково це прочитати. Щодо самого видання, то, як вже я писав, це чи не найкраща бібліотечка у Dark Horse після Гелбоя, тому якщо маєте можливість -- беріть обов'язково. Такі історії мають бути гідно представлені.

    Do yourself a huge favor and check out these library editions of Harrow County. They are wonderful stories beautifully illustrated. I love the watercolor/ gauche paint coloring over the pen and ink sequential art. It's a great and often disturbing coming of age story about a young witch learning about her place in the world and her own power. Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook are great at keeping the story intriguing. They're also great at creating monsters. Can not recommend this book enough.

    (3,8 of 5 for this Tyler Crook's art exhibition with a nice story but somehow underperforming Library edition) Harrow County is a great, chill, thrill and adventure. Cullen Bunn works really nicely with all that supernatural, haints, creatures, ghosts and magical powers. And it looks so good thanks to Tyler Crook's magnificent art. I can dislike some details on it, but overall it is great and if you see the process behind it in bonuses, you'll understand why.

Speaking of the bonuses - this library edition, in comparison with the first, feels little short. The ar is great, the story is nice but shorter and not that rich like the one with the first library edition. And the finale of it is very underperforming. And more than 1/3 of the whole Library edition is the bonus section. And even some of it is very nice, some feel like filler, just to get the library to the same thickness and price tag. Harrow County is still very good. The art's swell and peachy, the story is very nice and worked trough, but the bit underperforming end and excessive bonus part with sometimes doubtful value leave me bit disappointed and I must reflect that bitterness in the rating.

    In this part of Harrow County we get to see the "sense of belonging" trope that is usually a part of coming-of-age stories. I have to admit, though, that I didn't like the style of the guest artists so much and generally this part is a bit "weaker" than the first one.

    Was interesting but not as good as first volume and art was different for a key part of the story and that annoyed me. Still reading on as I want to see where it goes.

    Stejný jako první knížka, jenom ve všech ohledech o něco horší. Dávám tři hvězdy protože určitý kvality tomu musím objektivně nechat. Ale uplně mě to míjí. Tohle mě oproti první knížce nebavilo vůbec. S pokračováním si asi dám trochu pauzu protože nebejt Tales of Harrow County, tak mám pocit naprosto ztracenýho času. :/

Vol. 1 felt like a complete story and Vol. 2 takes us further into the history of the county, Emmy's mother, the skinless boy, Hester Beck, and shows us that the supernatural surrounds other characters like Bernice, who made a brief appearance in Vol. 1. Strangers with abilities appear but are they friendly forces or are they invading Harrow County to challenge Emmy and her community? One thing I REALLY love about this series is how every issue opens with a gorgeous two-page, establishing spread with the series title incorporated in creative ways.The LE for vol. 2 has another sketchbook full of pencils, drafts, commentary, and even some images showing Crook's painting process. We are also treated with a few more awesome "Tales of Harrow County" stories of which "The Butler" is a true standout. Please check out this series! Onward to volume 3!

    As with the first volume, which I read last fall, it’s a fantastic tome. If you’ve read the first volume, you know what you’re in for: a beautiful collaboration between Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook, telling a dark tale of haints and witches. This is more of that, with the occasional guest artist. As with the first library volume, there’s a veritable treasure trove of extras here, from backup one-pagers to a full issue script and roughs, as well as walkthrough of Crook’s paining process.

    Full five stars yet again for this magnificent tale Cullen Bunn has bestowed upon us. All I want to do more is just read on, the upcoming volumes. Bunn has created one of the best rich world's that might share a very cosy spot near my all time favourite: Mignolaverse. And if Vol 1 was any indication that this is one of his best works, then this one cements it as an even better one.

    The first half is a bit disappointing, the other half is better. This second library edition is certainly a step down from the previous one. I hope I won't get to see subpar guest artists like Hannah Christenson again in "Harrow County". The first half is a bit disappointing, the other half is better.

A long the way she discovers that she is apart of an ancient and not always benevolent covenant of fellow witches. Emmy has to decide before it is too late if they are friend or foes before allowing them into Harrow County. This by far is the most intriguing part of this entire volume were the introduction of the ancient covenant. Each character added an intensity that really heightened the stakes for Emmy. The only drawback was the limited amount of time spent on the world outside of Harrow County and the covenant itself. I still enjoyed it nevertheless.
