    This beautifully illustrated graphic novel has a few plots going on at once: set in a town called Blackwell, where all the girls are witches, a teen named Bucky yearns for power of his own - despite the fact that no witch can leave the town. Ever. Bucky's younger sister, Heidi, is kidn...

    3.5 stars rounded up for the artwork This graphic novel would be a good choice for fantasy-loving preteens and younger teens. Grimoire Noir is built around magic and a mystery. Bucky Orson?s sister Heidi is missing, and although his father is the sheriff, his powers are limite...

    There has been rain in Blackwell for two days; Bucky's mother has emotions tied to the weather and she has been crying non-stop ever since her daughter, Bucky's sister, has gone missing. No one has brought her back and Bucky is ready to take matters into his own hands, even at the risk...

    Wonderful graphic novel that combines fantastic story of a town with a secret. Witches live among the general townspeople and cannot leave the town. What happens when Bucky's sister Heidi goes missing is at the root of the GN. There are ghosts of the past, ghosts of the present. Ha...

    Grimoire Noir is surely something! It's a fantasy, ghost story and crime story all in one with a noir twist to it. It's set in Blackwell, which is a small town where girls are witches because of an old happening and the town is closed, so that the witches cannot leave without losing th...

    The dialogue was a bit awkward in places and some of the inferences/conclusions drawn about what happened to Heidi seemed straight from the author's head rather than through character actions or observations, but the artwork was gorgeous and I enjoyed reading this! ...

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for the ARC of this graphic novel in exchange for an honest review. My reviews are spoiler-free and unaffected by the free copy. I like to get my criticisms out first so I can end on a positive note, but honestly there's very little to pick ...

    This is a little tough to rate, because I honestly want to give the artwork 5 solid stars, and the storyline 3 at best. It's a positively stunning book with a lot of lovely and unique characters, but the plot needs more fleshing out and the ending was confusing, anticlimactic, and didn...

    Thank You Netgalley for providing me a free review in exchange for an honest review With a title like Grimoire Noir you'd think I'd put together that this graphic novel is...well...a noir. But I didn't, so going into it I was pleasantly surprised by the noir-ish elements and atmosph...

    I really liked Grimoire Noir. While I'm not the most avid graphic novel reader, this one was really easy to read and kept me interested throughout. There were a few strengths of this book that really stood out to me: I liked the way the artist left little word clues in the drawing ...

    I really loved this graphic novel. The story is all about a town where all the girls born in the town have magical powers. Our story starts off with Heidi, the daughter of the town sheriff, going missing. Her brother, Bucky, tries to help investigate her disappearance and goes around t...

    The art is GORGEOUS. I could look at it all day. The noir palette, with the ominous splashes of color... absolutely fantastic. The plot is a bit thin and the climax is confusing. It's also unfortunate that the only characters of color are the boss of the Mean Girl witch coven and her o...

    I never realized how much I enjoy reading graphic novels, especially this one: Girmoire Noir. It is about a town where girls have magic, but boys do not. It is about a boy whose sister is missing, and he takes it upon himself to find her. It is a mystery and a fantasy. The artwork is b...

    Pretty interesting mystery! And while the story follows the tropes of a detective mystery (the main kid even has a detective outfit) when the truth of the matter is unveiled, it's far more complicated than what was expected. Also the art is mostly blacks and white, very noir. I'm n...

    Five starts for the artwork. The ending kind of confused me a little but the person I suspected was not the person who did it. That?s super vague, but I don?t want to give anything away. I?ve got to say I was captivated and adored the art. Noir elements for sure. Really want t...

    This is yet another library borrow that I will have to go buy my own copy of. The illustrations are GORGEOUS. The character facial expressions are dead on for the entire graphic novel. This would be a fantastic Halloween read. It's got a missing sister, a flooding small town with magic...

    Spooky! The artwork throughout this graphic novel was so pleasantly eerie. The story was good and kept me guessing, and I imagine this will delight any young readers who like a bit of magic and spookiness in their world ;) ...

    Blackwell is a haven, of sorts. The town's girls are all born with powers. The charmed ones, or witches, whichever you prefer, are protected by laws against witch hunts and a barrier around the town that keeps them contained. Bucky Orson is your average boy in Blackwell, meaning there'...

    Let me begin this review with a reader's advisory: if you want to fully enjoy this work, you have to do two things. Number one: read the work as a hard copy and not an e-version. The digital edition is extremely fuzzy and very hard to read. Number two: learn to suppress your gag-reflex...

    I loved this book! The characters are all super interesting and the plotline of a magical little town secluded from the rest and holding a secret until the secret is in danger of getting out is a classic story line that never fails to grasp the reader's attention! I also love that the ...

    This was a fun graphic novel with GORGEOUS art. Fr the art was so good. I could feel the atmosphere of the story just by glancing at a picture. The plot was interesting and I was invested in the lore of the town. I loved that those with magic could never leave, making your powers less ...
