Not a ton happened in this one compared to the last one, other than "the tattoo", but it was still fun and there was definitely some tension. Seemed like a setup for some crazy stuff to come. ( )

This graphic novel collects comics 21-25 in the series. Timothy Hunter discovers he is a magician when he is 13 and strange adventures befall him. "Heavy Petting" sees Timothy change himself into a cat to look for his girlfriend Molly. He finds her in Hyde Park talking to Marya and a woman calling herself Red Riding Hood. Red Riding Hood has changed a man into a pigeon before taking Tim with her ina cage (she knows who he is) and changing Marya's ex-boyfriend Daniel into a dog. "Needlepoint" has Tim waking up as a cat in a cage with Red Riding Hood. She tells him she is a body artist and changes him back into a boy. Inside all people are animals and she delves inside Tim to find out what his inner beast is. She is unable to find one and declares him the most human human she has comea cross. He asks for a modification to stop him hurting Molly in the future and ends up with a massive tattoo or a scorpian with wings on his chest. "Red Rover, Red Rover" takes place on Tim's fourteenth birthday. He stops a being calling itself The Margrave from transforming the son of his dad's new girlfriend and making him blow up his family. He then runs away to live by himself without magic.

"And Sure in Language Strange She Said" follows Molly who is staying with her aunt in Ireland. She sends her off to read a letter concerning Tim on top of a hill with three standing stones. There she meets Titania's fairy fool and ends up in a challenge to prove who is more foolish. It turns out the standing stones are people who lost to the fairy transformed into stones. "Used to Be's" follows Timoth on Brighton beach reflecting on a childhood visit there with his friend Jimmy. He bumps in to Death from the Endless who teaches him about loss.

Not the best collection I have read, but it was good to see a little more of Death from the Sandman comics. The artwork was ok, not the best but certainly not the worst I have seen. Overall a fairly average graphic novel although I would still be interested to read more in the series. ( )

This is a good installment in the series. I do really love Molly, Tim's sort-of-girlfriend; she's so much more adult than Tim is! I would read a series about her just as happily. One thing that consistently throws me about this series, though, is the feeling that I've missed issues. Do the collections skip issues, or something? I still haven't figured out where Gwendolyn (the woman who takes care of Tim while his dad's in the hospital) came from. It's really confusing. ( )
