Penny Dreadful, Vol. 1: The Awaking Reviews

  • Maureen

    Volume 2 picks up where the series ended. If you loved the Showtime series, then the graphic novels will surely fill that longing for more Dreadfuls.

  • Mark Farley

    As a massive fan of this tv show, this ongoing series was a welcome addition to the very frustrating ending of the series. It was a shame that it ended, it clearly had more legs and potential but the network pulled it and that's a shame. Fortunately, the continuation and (pre-story also) are now continued in graphic novel form. Hope this continues.

    Ok folks! This is the Season 4 us diehard fans never got but desperately wanted! Season 3 ended tragically with the death of Vanessa Ives at Ethan Chandler’s regretful hands. It was too sudden, too abrupt, with so much set up for the next season already.

    Fortunately producer/writer Chris King has come to the rescue! Apparently he loves the show as much as we do, and The Awaking picks up six months after we left our band of distraught heroes.

    Mr. Lyle is in Egypt and of course he finds a mummy in

    Ok folks! This is the Season 4 us diehard fans never got but desperately wanted! Season 3 ended tragically with the death of Vanessa Ives at Ethan Chandler’s regretful hands. It was too sudden, too abrupt, with so much set up for the next season already.

    Fortunately producer/writer Chris King has come to the rescue! Apparently he loves the show as much as we do, and The Awaking picks up six months after we left our band of distraught heroes.

    Mr. Lyle is in Egypt and of course he finds a mummy in a sarcophagus. Like we knew he would! It’s also a cursed and evil sarcophagus- we expected that too!! Mr. Lyle orders the men to leave it behind but his patron, the Duke, brings it along anyway... and on the eve of the museum gala back at the museum, the evil duke raises the mummy. Turns out our duke serves Lucifer and wants the mummy to raise an army of the dead. He plans to resurrect our Vanessa as a vessel for Lucifer (so I guess for this plot to work, she really did have to die at the end of season 3. If that is a spoiler... I’m like if you are reading a review of the comic I feel it’s safe to assume you saw the show).

    Ethan meanwhile goes to Dr. Joan Seward for Help in controlling his beast self. Catriona is assisting Mr. Lyle with all things mummy. Lily/Brona has rediscovered God and is working for a Mother Superior who fights evil. Dr. Frankenstein has opened a regular practice and is still with Dr. Jekyll. Kaetenay is looking for other werewolves to fight the coming evil.

    We don’t get to see the Creature or Dorian Gray yet, but I’m sure their return will be just as epic as the others’!

    This is a continuation of after the show ended so it was nice for someone in writing/publishing to say "Hey I'll bet those fans of the show would totally LOVE to know what happened after the show ended". Well by golly you are right. I was BEYOND heartbroken when this series ended, mostly because I thought their were so many more stories to be told, Lyle was in Egypt and you knew he was bringing home a mummy (which he does), Ethan had to learn how to gain control, I needed to know what happened t

    This is a continuation of after the show ended so it was nice for someone in writing/publishing to say "Hey I'll bet those fans of the show would totally LOVE to know what happened after the show ended". Well by golly you are right. I was BEYOND heartbroken when this series ended, mostly because I thought their were so many more stories to be told, Lyle was in Egypt and you knew he was bringing home a mummy (which he does), Ethan had to learn how to gain control, I needed to know what happened to everyone after Vanessa dies (and if that was completely permanent). I know that the creator of the show said that the ending that happened was always going to be how they ended the show, but I think they were kind of pushed to make it sooner rather than later, so having anything that keeps this show going will get a great rating in my mind.

    To the comic itself: I loved it. I loved the artwork, the plot was spot on, and everyone's characters were so in tuned you knew whoever did this was at least a fan/ involved. I kind of already went into spoilers about what happens, but I can guarantee this will answer some of the questions everyone had after the show ended. I highly recommend these comics if you liked the show.

    I loved this show. I love this series.

  • Castle Spooktacular

    Really good!

  • Marieke

    This was SIGNIFICANTLY better than the prequel graphic novel. It actually invoked some of the feelings that the TV series gave me and was deliciously dark and gruesome. It has restored my faith in the continuation of the story through graphic novels!

    Reading this for this Holiday Adventureathon

    Challenge: presents: read a book you received as a gift.

    Love love loved this show when it was on. So sad when it ended. So you cannot imagine how happy I was when I saw one of the shows producers what going to continue the series via books. And a graphic novel so it’s like watching the show again! Can’t wait to see where this goes! It’s gonna be awesome!
