The Books of Magic, Volume 1: Bindings Reviews

  • Samantha
    Fascinating. Tim the main magical character is similar to the famous Harry Potter which is interesting (something about that archetype yields scrawny boys with troubled pasts dark messy hair and glasses). My favorite character was death. She was stunning and cute, easy to relate to yet shes death so...

    Poor Timothy Hunter. His life story is an exercise in wrong place, wrong time. A full 7 years before the introduction of Harry Potter to the masses, 12-year-old magician in training Timothy Hunter debuted in a 4-issue limited series from DC Comics and writer Neil Gaiman. Based on the success of that...

    It was OK but still not super intriguing at all, it didn't leave me very curious about what Tim was going to do next by any means. Death was kind of cool, but pretty preachy too. The fae were stereotypical. And it was really annoying that Gaiman's The Books of Magic was numbered 0 and this is book 1...

    Because you are not real eitherSometimes we read and gulp down books that we like.

I mean, Neil is...

    Loved everything about this. Death, Art style, Death. What can I say, I love The Sandman and Death is my favourite character so I'll read anything with her in it. ...

    Rereading this for the first time in more than a decade, it's a gorgeous exploration of the magic of the faerie realms. There's other stuff that's closer to my heart now, but this still gets credit for being one of the early examples of urban fantasy, generating a wealth of ideas that other authors ...

    I was ready to dismiss the whole volume after finishing the first issue but then it got just so much better. A pleasant read, glad I discovered this series....

    Il fatto che sia un numero #1 รจ piuttosto fuorviante: la storia di Tim Hunter ha radici ben lontane, e qui sono presentati i numeri 57-61 della serie. Quando Gross ha preso le redini della storia e ha iniziato a raccontare lo scontro fra un depotenziato Tim Huner e il suo doppio malvagio e vampir...
