My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved the Victorian atmosphere and Sir Edward is a charismatic lead.
I liked the eerie and creepy elements, excellently drawn by Ben Steinbeck. I thought that one of the characters bore a resemblance to classic horror movie actor Peter Cushing, and sure enough, it was so! The seedy ambience Victorian London blooms in full spectrum, as though through a darkly-lit photographic aperture. Mike Mignola's work excites me because he brings a love of classic horror elements and folklore to everything he writes. It's like being able to read those gems but getting something new in the bargain.
I will definitely read more books with Sir Edward Grey.
