The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch is a graphic novel by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Michael Zulli first published in 2008Gaiman’s delivery and especially Zulli’s artwork are as usual entertaining and fun to look at Essentially a group of friends go to an unusual circus like show to which a friend of a friend Miss Finch has been invited along Miss Finch is stand offish and confrontational and does not fit in with the others in the group Along the way Miss Finch has a very strange encounter in the circusTold with Gaiman’s inimitable style and Zulli’s impressive artwork this is a fun graphic novel This is a graphic novel version of one of Neil Gaiman's short stories and I felt a bit was lost in the adaptation to graphic form It is good but not great It drops off near the end Not much is explained We don't know who the people in the story even are If you like creepy circus people this will be your thing Beware the blind date Thanks to the publisher who gave me a chance to see the 2nd edition a bit early through Edelweiss Very disappointing Upon reuest I gave this a second chance Nope The story was bland relied heavily and narration like He sipped his tea Even though we see the cup placed up to his lips we are not trusted to understand this? Other times it makes a bit of sense but not much I felt this should have just been left alone as a short story although I have not read that either I just do not feel this flowed well as a graphic novel Overall bland Rather a pointless transitionI have mixed thoughts on the art It is very detailed which was a nice touch but the color choices I felt added a drab feeling to a story that was already dulling Bad combination It didn't flow In the end this just didn't work for me It was too short to properly get into and the twists just fell flat for me Very good Neil Gaiman is always hit and miss with me so I never know with his books This is a graphic adaptation of one of his short stories which I hadn't read The art is deliciously scrumptious and says so much than words could especially with the ending It's a spooky creepy tale that held me enthralled from beginning to end The predictability was predictable It also lacked charm and I find story uite lackluster dull and expressionless This was a curious tale Originally a short story it was made into comic format It is the story of a Miss Finch who disappeared one night at the The Theatre of Night's DreamingThis tale had a lot in common with the Last Temptation GN Even the maestro looks like Alice Cooper's character in that story It has many of the same feelings But it just seemed very rushed and shortSome friends meet up to go out to a theater and eat some food They bring an annoying prat named Miss Finch along Miss Finch has lot of opinions and shares them They go to the Theater and go through various room where the circus performs But it seems Miss Finch is gone But it seems that Miss Finch has gone native More than that I shall not sayThe artwork isn't bad at all and works well for this story It is not a bad story Just short Very short Considering the import of this story it doesn't seem like the tale got it's due The explanations of the events leaves much to be desired An interesting tale overall but one with the impression of being rushed and it seemed too short I know thats a funny thing to say in a short story but it applies I think only Neil Gaiman fans will like this one It is a moody story but the behavior of the women doesn't uite ring true Artwork is beautiful though Two of my favourite things are Neil Gaiman stories and graphic novels Gaiman is one of the few writers whose work I will seek out and read and reread and always find it as enjoyable as entertaining as the first time I originally read The Facts in The Case of the Departure of Miss Finch in Fragile Things several years ago and thought it was one very dark very creepy tale so when I saw it reproduced as a graphic novel how could I resist?While in London a writer is invited out for a night of fun and sushi with a couple of friends However their purpose for inviting him is not entirely friendship – they are saddled with Miss Finch another acuaintance a woman who is a bit of a killjoy and they hope the presence of the writer will prevent the evening from being entirely ruined After a meal of sushi in which Miss Finch ‘entertains’ them with tales of all of the parasites that one can get from eating raw seafood along with comments about now extinct animals they decide to go to a underground circus to get out of the rain But this is no ordinary circus there are vampires and other denizens of the dark to amuse and amaze the rather small crowd None of this however impresses the group until they reach the very last exhibit the Cabinet of Wishes Fullfill’d and Miss Finch is dragged into it The graphic novel is published by Dark Horse and illustrated by Michael Zulli The artwork is done in slightly muted tones and complements the tale beautifully In fact this may be one of the few times I would be hard pressed to say which I enjoyed the story or the art This is also a very short book just 56 pages but what it lacks in length it makes up for in the sheer creepy goodness of the story and the beauty of the art Definitely a high recommendation from me for fans of Neil Gaiman andor graphic novels45 A graphic novel fantasy by Gaiman illustrated by Michael Zulli based on a short story by Gaiman first released as a graphic novel in 2008 rereleased recently Three people meet an acuaintance Miss Finch to see a play in the London underground which in this case means it takes place in the catacombs of the London subway system Lots of bizarre unexplainable things happen including Miss Finch's participation and see title in the various performances tableaux Pretty forgettable action actually; the three others seem sort of cynical bored The art by Zulli is great the story just okay though it does have a few minor Gaiman touches This was a beautifully drawn graphic novel version of one of Gaiman's short stories I remembered the story well from his short story collections and it was a delight to see it brought to life visually I wouldn't mind seeing him give of his stories this treatment
