“It has been a while since I have visited Neverland and to be honest I love that this is an oversized annual. It gives Jay so much more space to really get involved with the storytelling in how and why Nathan has to go back to Neverland. That and it hopefully sets up another arc or limited series with him and Wendy being targeted by Pan so that we’ll see more of these characters.
I am very much enjoying the way that this is being told. The story & plot development that we see through how the sequence of events unfold as well as how the reader learns information is presented beautifully. The character development is phenomenal and all throughout this issue as we see the dialogue, character interaction and the way they act and react to the situations and circumstances they encounter not only are they fleshed out beautifully but you feel like these are people you personally know. They are familiar and that’s sensational because we connect with them, their reasons and their reactions. The pacing is superb and as it takes us through the pages revealing the story and the twists & turns along the way we’re reminded just how great this totally twisted and violent place really is.
Jay just keeps getting better and better with each new story he writes. This one is smart, intelligent, entertaining, engaging and full of heart which is why the good guys usually win. Though what he is able to do with the characterisation and how he’s able to put Pan into this story and keep him so true to who he is is honestly a bit terrifying. Never before have we seen a villain quite like him and Cinderella certainly does try. This is a perfect book for new readers and longtime fans alike and it’s the kind of introduction and/or reminder why Neverland isn’t a fairy tale but a cautionary one.”
