I love this! It’s so original! I’ve never read superhero graphic novel quite like this one. The artwork was also fantastic! It’s so vibrant and aesthetically pleasing. Can’t wait to read the next volume!

The only reason I picked up this book was because I was anticipating a movie, Now You See Me 2. So I was like in this mood to read a book about magic. I didn’t even notice at first that Neil Gaiman has one story in this anthology.

The story that stuck to me the most was Painted Birds and Shivered Bones by Kat Howard. It’s about a painter and this man who could turn into a bird. Little did she knows, her painting is magic. It kinda reminds me of this Tv Show on HBO Asia about a girl who had magic drawings ability. I just find that whole drawing thing is so fascinated. Or maybe it just me projecting because I can’t draw a thing to save my own life.

My favorite part was, when Eve and Mor participate in the Supermarket sweeping games! Gah, I hope they have it here. I’ll win! xD

The Artwork in this volume is slightly better than the previous volume.

Octopus Pie: Volume 2 ends in a sad note for Eve and Park. Although, this is irrelevant to the review, but I’m so mad I missed my chance to read Octopus Pie: Volume 3 on NetGalley. So now I won’t know what happen next to Eve and Park.
