A great story that keeps getting better 3. August 2013
Von William H. Ansley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Materia, the fourth volume of Gunnerkrigg Court, continues the absorbing tale of Antimony Carver (known as Annie) and her fellow classmates at the strangest school since Hogwarts. Gunnerkrigg Court (often referred to only as the Court), is, like Hogwarts, a boarding school run on the British system. The school seems to be located in Great Britain, but it may not be quite the same as the Great Britain of our world. While it is an important setting for much of the series, it plays a much less central role in Annie's story than Hogwarts did in Harry Potter's. Among the many mysteries in Gunnerkrigg Court is the question of just what the Court actually is: As the main characters realize early on, it is far more than just a school.

Gunnerkrigg Court is a science fantasy comic. While it was initially published online and is available to read for free at the comic's website (which you can easily find with any search engine), it is formatted to fit on a standard A5 page, and looks great in print. If you enjoy the comic, it is well worth the purchase price to have it available in the well-made and handsome volumes published by Archaia.

The comic is aimed at young adult readers. but will appeal to many older readers as well, especially those who appreciate science fiction and fantasy. Gunnerkrigg Court recounts the adventures of Annie and her best friend Kat Donlan (and others) as they attend classes, live their lives, and investigate the mysteries of the Court. Annie and her friends also get involved in the political intrigues between the Court and Gillitie Wood which is a forest near the Court and the other major power in the world of Gunnerkrigg Court. The wood is inhabited by fantastic beings including Coyote, the trickster god. While Coyote is never given an explicit title beyond his name (he is always addressed as Coyote with a capital 'C'), he is treated as the leader of Gillitie Wood by the leaders of the Court.

The story features excellent writing and vivid characterizations with several strong female characters. It is genuinely funny and frightening, exciting and touching. It is a tale of friendship and hatred, beauty and ugliness, triumph and tragedy, technology and magic. The story is episodic, being made up of many self-contained chapters, but also tells an overarching story of the characters struggling to untangle the many mysteries surrounding them. The numerous characters are drawn from both science fiction (be prepared for a great many robots) and fantasy, including beings from mythologies from around the world. If you enjoy a good fantasy tale, you owe it to yourself to check out this series; you will be hard put to find a better one.

A great book for one of my favorite comics 23. August 2013
Von Drillgorg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book fully met my expectations. It is a great medium (no pun intended) with which to read Gunnerkrigg Court. The colors look bolder, fuller, and more beautiful in the book than they do on my computer screen when reading the comic online. The physical book itself seemed well made and professional looking.

This volume collects the chapters 32-41 of the webcomic Gunnerkrigg Court. The comic follows Antimony Carver through her years at the mysterious titular school, and builds as it goes along. Starting at the beginning is best.

The first three volumes of GC featured a deep, gradually unfolding story centered on a core of diverse, compelling characters. Volume 3 contained a great balance of twists and reveals vs foreshadowing for the future and kept suspense high without stringing the reader along. It ended with a new status quo looking to add a lot of intrigue.

The direction of opening chapter of this volume threw me a bit. It makes sense, and was executed wonderfully as usual, but given the end of the last volume I was REALY expecting/hoping for something else. I got over it quick though, as Siddell's narrative about a strange school and the conflicts of technology and mysticism is as good as ever. Numerous long running plot threads come to critical points, often resolving in most unexpected manners, while new mysteries and complications arise. The layered storytelling is just magnificent. Most reveals are approached sideways as other important events take place, without ever overwhelming or confusing the reader. Many characters have hidden and conflicting agendas that are just beginning to be unveiled in small pieces. Even what little we know so far about the myths and greater world of GC is absolutely fascinating.

The real treat of course is how three dimensional the characters are and the significant development several of them go through. There's more than just the happenings at court and in the forest going on as Annie and Kat grow up in GC. Neither is perfect in action nor attitude, but they try to learn from their mistakes and figure life out as they go like anyone else. They are affected by their experiences, with the past impacting their worldview, personalities, and interactions with other characters significantly. It's wonderful to watch and one of the main reason GC is such an engrossing read. The supporting cast is equally well formed and developed, with Parley, Zimmy and Jones particularly shining in these chapters.

The art, which was always good, has evolved into something incredible. The unique style is the perfect counterpart to the story and its details, dramatic touches and superb coloring are great assets/enhancements to the comic.

As with the previous volumes I read these chapters online and then looked through the printed edition. It's a very nice hardbound book about the size of a smaller prose hardcover (instead of the standard larger "standard" graphic novel size) with high quality paper and printing, including very vivd colors. I will mention again that the darker colors are so saturated sometimes you can't see some of the wonderful detail work and highlights that stand out in the online version (where the hues are lighter). It's a small complaint, but it is worth mentioning there's a minor unintentional difference between the two versions.

Gunnerkrigg Court continues to be one of the best webcomics there is.

Highest possible recommendation.
Wonder! Intrigue! Good times. 3. September 2013
Von Vanessa R. Rutledge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I've been reading this comic online since it barely started, 2 or 3 chapters in. It's FREE. I am stingy by nature and yet this is one of those things that I must place on my shelf; not JUST: to read away from computer, to lend out, for author support, for reading to my kids one day, but because it is also that enjoyable to read again.

I like the characters and their development, the pacing, the art style (and evolution of that style), how imagery plays a powerful role in describing a scene, the gender roles(lack there of), the tone of the story (both lighthearted and dark), a lot of the dialog, and of course the author comments (online).
Fascinating story... 28. Januar 2014

I discovered this series on the Web and was fascinated by its blending of technology and mysticism... and because I believe I'm better served by this author's continuing to be able to write and draw this story than if he was waiting tables somewhere, I am supporting his efforts by buying the books.

The book, BTW, is a beautiful thing, good quality paper... could wish it was a larger format but hey, I'll take Gunnerkrigg Court any way I can get it... yes, it's that good..!
