This story is set in the world originally created by Gerard Way, for the My Chemical Romance concept album "Danger Days". However the book easily stands alone for those unfamiliar with the origins. This graphic novel offers twists and turns very early on, pairing well with the bright, busy, detail filled art. The characters are likeable and tragic, the action is fast paced. It will leave you wanting to read it a second time, to catch the details that might or might not clarify what is real and what is imagined, in the mind of the main character. ~ Reviewed by Misty Hendrichsen
