Graphic Novel Review: IDENTITY THIEF

 
 
IDENTITY THIEF
Written by Bryant Dillon
Art by Meaghan O’Keefe
Produced and Edited by Barbra Dillon
Co-Produced by Sam Rhodes
  
 A while back I did a review for a great graphic novel from Fanboy Comics called, SOMETHING ANIMAL.  You can see that review here.  Fanboy Comics is back with another impressive graphic novel, this one titled IDENTITY THIEF.   Here is the basic plot of the book from the book's official website:

When Daphne and Craig move into a new apartment, they have every reason to believe that they have left their troubled past behind them. Everything seems perfect, but after the discovery of a mysterious hatch in his closet, Craig begins to realize that something disturbingly inhuman is seeking a way into his home, desperate to enter his life in the most intimate and unsettling way possible.
 
This is another great graphic novel from the folks at Fanboy Comics. The story is very interesting and is a fun read.  The art is very interesting. While at first look it might look sort of amateurish, a better way to describe it in my opinion is, raw.   While not as polished as some comic art,  the style of the art gives it a very dark, raw feeling.  For this story, the artwork is perfect.  In fact, in a way it reminds me of the art of Ben Templesmith from the 30 DAYS OF NIGHT series.

An interesting thing about this graphic novel is the limited use of dialog.  While there is dialog throughout, it is very sparse and some pages have no dialog on them at at.  Here you use the art to tell the story, which is interesting as it can leave certain parts of the story open to interpretation by each individual reader.

 Fanboy Comics is doing a great job putting out some great independent comics.  Check out the sites below to learn more about Fanboy Comics and to purchase IDENTITY THIEF.
