This third installment in the series of graphic novels co-produced between ComicsLit and the Musée du Louvre lives up to the enigmatic standards already established in this series, and succeeds more artfully in telling a compelling story. Eric Liberge's deaf protagonist is the most fully-developed character then we have seen in this series so far, and the notion of using a deaf character to interact with the artworks of the Louvre is a highly effective plot device. In a similar vein to the Glacial Period title in this series, On the Odd Hours climaxes with a freeing of the artworks themselves, seemingly suggesting that the sequestering of these treasures behind the walls of a museum is a sad fate for them and for humanity. With a more cohesive story and some beautiful artwork by Liberge, On the Odd Hours is the best title in this series thus far. ( )
