I am not a devoted graphic novel reader, although I’ve dabbled here and there. The plot of Adamtine drew me in – four strangers take the last train home, but something each is trying to forget is catching up with them – and the art kept me interested.
Reading a graphic novel is a different experience: you get as much, if not more, from the images as you do from the words and dialogue. That is definitely the case with Adamtine – as you read, you discover clues to the connection between the strangers and the horror of what they may face. It’s very dark, both in terms of the artwork and the events that occur. If you’re like me, you’ll be compelled to flip back to the beginning as soon as you reach the conclusion.
4 out of 5 stars.
