I once again bring you tidings of my new favorite goth girl (move over, Emily the Strange!).
That’s right, people: Pan is back in 56 full-color pages covering three brand new adventures!
Set after the events of Book 2 (don’t worry, the graphic novel is released a whole month after Book 2 hits the shelves, so you’ll have plenty of time to get caught up), we see Pan trying to move on with her life. At first, things seem to be moving on an upward swing for our favorite goth with “Monstervision”. She’s got a new boyfriend (Javi from Blood Feud), and while her initial meeting with his family is a little bumpy, it proves to be nothing that the two lovebirds can’t share a laugh over.
One particular example of this is Javi’s aunt dousing Pan with holy water from a super-soaker because she believes that Pan worships the devil because Pan’s a goth. She and Javi do in fact laugh about it afterwards, and the reader gets the impression that everything is going to continue at the simple, easy pace. After all, it’s summer and the two lovebirds are happily joking back and forth about their families while strolling through Central Park.
However, if the events from Blood Feud have taught us anything, it’s that nothing in Pan’s life, is ever easy and simple for very long. This only proves itself when her “Monstervision” kicks in and reveals Javi’s ex-girlfriend’s true colors.
Despite this however, one can rest assured that Pan’s quick, snarky wit will shine through whatever darkness and trouble she faces, like a beacon through the fog.
I was fortunate enough to get a peek at the first 6 pages, and even with that small glimpse, I am beyond excited for what is to come! The artwork is very well done, and I can’t wait to see it progress within future pages.
