Really, when I saw this, I was excited. Holly Black, author of the Tithe trilogy and Spiderwick Chronicles, teaming up with Ted Naifeh of Polly and the Pirates and Courtney Crumrin fame to write a graphic novel about fae? Sign me up!
The art style is beautiful. Naifeh’s fae are graceful and strange, and that works great with the graceful and strange story. In this volume, Rue Silver finds out that her absentee mother is a faerie when her father is accused of murdering both his wife and a former student. In her search to clear his name, Rue is exposed to the dark underworld of faerie/human relationships.
If you are in any way a fan of faerie tales, check out Good Neighbors.
