    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 als...

    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/writ...

    I wasn't very impressed with the writing on this one. Very choppy, and one panel with a typo, which I thought was sloppy. I'm really excited to see where the story goes, but this execution was not what I was expecting. ...

    Yay. S4 of Penny Dreadful... or what it sorta could have been. I love this show and I am thrilled to see this continuing on. I KNEW the Egyptian storyline had to do with Vanessa and it would segway into The Mummy character. I love how this show handles all the horror characters a...

    Excellent direct sequel to the tv series and written by the co-producer. The book involves the risen mummy Belial and a group of satanists bent on bringing Lucifer out of Hell to reside in Vanessa's body. Plenty of amazing illustrated horror action. I very highly recommend this graphic...

    Well, this is a continuation of the television series Penny Dreadful, which was glorious so of course I'm going to read this. And there was some solid stuff. I waited seasons for Ethan to realize Brona was alive (sort of? again?) so that was satisfying. I'm interested to see where it g...

    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. ...

    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! ...

    There was a hell of a lot to like in this sequel to the sadly departed TV series. The artwork was spectacular and not only captured the likenesses of the actors from the series, there was also a sense of momentum throughout that really carried the story. The characters felt very true t...

    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 b...

    Good momentum and plot, but really stilted in the dialogue and I wish this wasn't such a blatant Mummy ripoff. The queer and class politics are just right for this adaptation though and King clearly gets how much the show is as much about found families and outsiders as it is satanic m...

    3.5 ? Una chicca imperdibile per i fan di Penny Dreadful. La poesia è morta con Vanessa Ives, ma l?affetto per i personaggi che tanto abbiamo amato rimane. Curiosi di scoprire come sarebbe continuata la serie? Avete l?occasione di scoprirlo in maniera riassuntiva attraverso ...

    Not much to say about this particular graphic novel. The only character I thought was a bit out of place when compared to the series is Brona/Lily, where she is now as a person doesn't really fit her in my opinion. ...

    I binge watched all of Penny Dreadful when I was sick with a feverish cold one week, so I have some very vivid memories of this show. I was insanely disappointed in how it ended, especially seeing the character of Vanessa Ives gutted to fit the gothic ending the creators wanted. This g...

    VOY A METER SPOILERS DE LA SERIE. Como fan insatisfecha que soy de Penny Dreadful decidí que tenía que leer este cómic en cuanto me enteré de que existía. Después del despropósito que fue el final de la serie tenía curiosidad por ver cómo iban a continuar la historia tra...

    Six months after the conclusion of the tv show, evil still won't leave our heroes alone. Older, wiser, but more wearied, they must reassemble yet again to face the twin evils of the Dragon and the Devil. It's not bad. It's not as lush as the show at its hallucinogenic best, but for ...

    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, most...

    I really loved this continuation of Penny Dreadful. No matter what is said in the interviews, there were more stories to be told nd the comics flesh out what could have been. After Vanessa's death, Ethan is haunted by her spirit as well as coping with the monster he has literally beco...

    I really loved the direction this story took, picking up 6 month after the series ended. Only bad thing is that they didn't continue this next chapter as part of the television series. Other than that I'll be impatiently waiting for the next volume ...

    It's not quite the same without our dear Ms. Ives but it was interesting to see how the characters have progressed after her death. ...

    As dark and beautiful as the show, this comic book continuation captures the essence of the characters and their tragic tales in an epic page-turner that just builds on the wondrous mythology John Logan created. ...

    Meh...i really don't know how to feel about it. It probably IS a better Ending than the terrible TV-Show Ending....BUT it's just not good :( I Loved the Artwork, therefore Three Stars. The Plot is just weird and i hoped for so much more. ...
