House of Clay is a well-illustrated graphic novel. However, the characters are poorly developed through the text, and the plot, climax, and resolution seem contrived and highly underdeveloped. For example, conclusions are fed to the reader about the relationship between the main character and her parents. It is a great example of how illustrations can capture feelings and emotions. However, it is a poor example of storytelling through writing. ( )
