Series : #3 Gloom Cookie
Format : Graphic Novel
Reason for Reading : 999 Challenge

More from the Gloom Cookie cast as Lex and Damion try to break Isabella's curse before something bad happens to Lex again in this lifetime. It turns out that to break the curse it is simple, Isabella must just stop loving Damion. It's easier said than done as how do you switch off your emotions and just stop yourself from being in love. Things are made a little easier for Isabella when her olf flame and werewolf Artemus turns up back at the Carnival Macabre. The problem is that can she reverse her feelings in time to save Lex.

Meanwhile Sebastian is discovering more about his powers. The problem is that his influence on other realities seems to be causing issues as beings have moved over to his current reality and are affecting the lives of the people there and not in a good way. Chrys is there as ever to help him and more of her backstory is revealed.

Artist Breehn Burns takes over for this volume and I really like his style. There is also some fun guest artwork at the end of the collection as well as part of Serena's script for one of the comics. It leaves lots of unanswered questions at the end and I am looking forward to reading the next gloomie installment an seeing what happens next.

I really want to continue with this series. If the cover is anything to judge by, I think I'll love the art too!

I just love that cover!
I got a couple of manga last week for the challenge. The first in the xxxHolic series, and the first in Naoki Urasawa's Monster series. Looking forward to them.
