Tabatha (Neil Gibson)

Luke works as a mailman in Los Angeles and moonlights as a thief – the empty houses on his postal route are rich, easy pickings for him and his friends. Everything goes to plan until one house turns out to not quite be so empty. The situation spirals out of control, leaving the happy go lucky thieves battling for their lives. And all because of Tabatha

***I received an eArc from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.***


I went into this graphic novel not really knowing what to expect, but somehow it was not at all like I would assume the story would go.

I loved the artwork, the illustrations are amazing, and the color!!!! I also liked that the story was dark, way dark, with blood spraying and hands severed kind of dark. However, given the blurb, I did expect it to be more about Luke and Tabatha, and even if all the events of the book happen BECAUSE of Tabatha, she does actually very little. And Luke has as much protagonism as the rest of the cast.

I did not like the prejudice and stereotypes on this graphic novel. Shunning a guy, calling him nerd as an insult and belittling him for it is (in my opinion) insulting, and I did not care for that.

Incredible, even not having enjoyed it immensely, I would like to know what comes next for Tabatha and Fin, that would be fun!

All and all, not bad…
