Author: Marshalsea

Rating: 5

Review: A single story thread of The Storyteller of Nord ties together a wonderful set of other stories of the beginning of world, love, hope, manipulative Gods, a bit of violence (nothing above a U/PG rating for sure), and all those other great things that make myths and fairy tales so much fun! There's an undeniable English Wit here, from little textual asides, to little bits in the art itself. Ms Greenberg has created a lovely place to escape to and has managed to capture something of that childhood wonder. Yet more proof (isn't it about time that the stuffy old Literati gave up denying it?) that Graphic Novels should not be derided, and are of the great tradition of storytelling. This is a perfect present for anyone young and old who will open up to the possibility of a great story from a Graphic Novel. Do not read the synopsis, do not read any spoiler reviews, just delve straight in and be lost in a wonderful world where you can find out what happens to The Storyteller and what has happened in the world he lives in.

Review: The artwork is good, and who doesn't love an ancient Norse myth? I bought 2 copies for various nieces. On reading it myself I was horrified to discover characters speaking in modern American (or British, it's hard to work out) street slang. There is a lot of 'OK', 'brill' (which is normally British), and in the story of the Hals, one brother calls the other a 'pussy'. And the children of the bird god are called... 'Kid' and 'Kiddo'. I really wonder how someone with the imagination to come up with the story and artistic approach could have been so lacking in imagination for the dialogue of the characters. Young readers might not notice this, but any adult reader can't ignore it.
