I loved the artwork in this graphic novel! Ferdinand's cat was especially amusing. What I DIDN'T like was that the author put himself into the story, and when graphic novel artists do that it really irks me. ( )

I loved Little Vampire and was hoping this would be a continuation. Only it was completely different--a grown up vampire suffering from ennui, looking for love, meanders from story to story with strange half-realized plots (stuck on an ocean liner, a murder mystery, etc.) The drawing is as good as anything Joann Sfar has done, the combination of a real and spooky world marvelously rendered, but I just did not find the stories or characters particularly exciting. Would read just about anything else by him before this. ( )

I fell in love with this graphic novel. It has a little bit of everything....humor, awkward love, mystery, adventure. I especially enjoyed the snippet written from the perspective of creatures created from "monster putty." ( )

Random graphic novel about a vampire and his failed love affairs. A bit surreal, but entertaining. Funny art. ( )

Sfar’s wiggly linework is perfectly suited to drawing these creatures. When Ferdinand flies dejectedly home, you can almost see the resignation and unhappiness trailing behind him in the air. The personalities are involving — they seem like people you could know, three-dimensional, with complex motivations and impulses.
