Jun 13, Edward Sullivan rated it really liked it Shelves: fables-fairy-tales-folklore , graphic-comic-narrative. Wonderfully fantastical illustrations in this retelling for mature readers. Sep 02, Maggie Gordon rated it liked it Shelves: fairy-tale , graphic-novels. Funky art, but a bit confusing as a standalone piece, particularly for younger readers who might not be familiar with Nights. Happy to see some middle eastern tales getting more play in the graphic novel realm though!
Jun 05, Devann rated it liked it Shelves: g-fantasy-realistic , a-adult , sg-retellings , t-graphic-novel , c-arcs , znetgalley , star. There's kind of a lot going on because there are several stories within stories but it's a really fun read and definitely not a story I've heard before.
Also the art is absolutely gorgeous. It's got a lot of really great colors and page layouts so this was really fun to look at. It can get a bit dry at times, but I think it's actually aged pretty well considering the original age of the s I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley This is a retelling of a small portion of the Nights. It can get a bit dry at times, but I think it's actually aged pretty well considering the original age of the stories.
Jun 18, Molly rated it really liked it Shelves: , adaptation , graphic-novel , netgalley , fairy-tales , folktales. I really like David B. This story is framed within one of the tales from the Thousand and One Nights and works very well to revisit that device to add layers to the story. It's well told and beautifully colored, but the story itself just wasn't for me. I received access to this title via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Sep 09, vostendrasamigosyotengolibros rated it liked it. I really loved the art but personally reading another comic based or themed in a Thousand and One Nights is a little bit tiring, but the art is amazing. Aug 23, Deanna Deanna Reads Books rated it liked it. This review was originally posted on my review blog Deanna Reads Books I have some mixed feelings about this graphic novel.
On the one hand, the colors and artwork in this one was amazing, but on the other hand I felt like the narrative flow gets a little lost. The artwork in this one was awesome to look at.
An exciting year for books and movies
It had really saturated colors that made it really nice to look at. Artwork is a really important thing to me when it comes to reviewing graphic novels, and this one definitely hooked me in. It was just beautiful to look at and that's really important in this medium. I had a feeling this story was built off of some sort of folklore, just based on the names of the characters and the fact that they kept mentioning King Solomon. It looks like it's kind of a retelling of One Thousand and One Nights.

Where it loses me a little bit is that the narrative is a story within a story within a story, that I kind of forgot what was the actual point of the original narrator. It's an interesting way to tell a story for sure, but it did kind of lose me a bit. Also throughout the novel there would be someone that said, "and it was the or whatever number night" and that started to get really irritating to me. I think if you are looking for an quick read and want to read about a folklore re-telling, this one is for you.
This was an interesting story, and i enjoyed it but it didn't give me a big "wow factor" that other books do. Have you read this graphic novel? What did you think? Jun 03, Barbara McEwen rated it really liked it Shelves: sff-speculative , france , netgalley , middle-east. An entertaining graphic novel that sucks you in and keeps you entertained with captivating illustrations. I would definitely read more of the Thousand and One Nights Tales. Thanks to NetGalley for providing me a copy for my unbiased review.
Aug 11, Lola added it Shelves: graphic-novel. Some people will probably find the story unique and intriguing, but I found it unnecessarily convoluted and I doubt a lot of the content. Many are villains — some antiheroes. He only features in like 20 or so pages, whereas the others have more page time.
I also find that he makes such stupid decisions, so I could not connect to him. I did like the illustrations. Jan 05, Kate Atherton rated it it was amazing Shelves: graphic-novels , i-recommend. This book, which I randomly pulled off the shelf at the library today, is nothing short of spectacular. It's no secret that I love French cartoonists This book is beautiful, in every frame ; intricate drawings of demons and serpents, textiles, crowd scenes, lavish birds, skeleton armies, spiders The composition, color and line work is consistently flawless and the story moves along at so cinematic of a pace that I fear I must re-read this JUST to look at the drawings again for longer.
I highly recommend this book as it is a perfect snippet of 1, and one nights and is luminous, every page is a piece on its own. The pages where Scheherazade and the king are laying in bed, framing a scene from the story between them are especially clever. Nov 08, Kirsten rated it really liked it Shelves: folklore-and-fairytales , fiction , children-or-ya , graphic-novels , poc-characters , from-library. Stories within stories tangle like the body of the Serpent Queen! What a beautifully illustrated interpretation.
Oct 26, Christine rated it really liked it Shelves: graphic-novel , fairy-tales-folklore. I love graphic novels. I love the art and how they interpret a story. This is a "tale of a Thousand and One Nights". Absolutely beautiful artwork. I love all the color. Just stunning. Jul 13, Nelo rated it really liked it Shelves: net-galley , graphics , supernatual. In this story we meet Hasib who has just been betrayed by his co workers, he is trapped in a cave and perchance meets a scorpion that leads him to the serpent queen. The adventure begins Although this book is a folktale,from the first page i was sure this book was not intended for a younger audience its a bit graphic.
The story is interesting, right from the first page the story grips you. If you are familiar with the one thousand and one nights you would know that this tale is narrated by Schehera In this story we meet Hasib who has just been betrayed by his co workers, he is trapped in a cave and perchance meets a scorpion that leads him to the serpent queen.
Now the art style is absolutely gorgeous i found my self thinking this defies logic and the laws of anything on earth, but hey that's why its fantasy , a perfect fit for the story.
