    HOLY SHIT THAT CLIFFHANGER. I love where this is going. However I feel like this is moving super fast. But then again, it's in comic form... and I am a fast reader.Nonetheless, I need Vol 3.

Mankind has been caught in the middle of a war, one which they have little chance of surviving. As the relics of an evil long since thought vanquished emerge from the darkness, the legacy of Vanessa Ives’ death is clear: A battle is coming, and the victor shall show no mercy. With so much at stake, old grudges must be cast aside if humanity is to take a stand against the armies of evil mustering to destroy each other!...(Klappentext)​☠☠☠☠☠​"I am mother and father; your master made flesh.My children, follow me and I will give you the world you all deserve."​Dies ist der 2. Teil der Graphic Novel-Reihe "Penny Dreadful", der Fortsetzung der TV-Serie im Graphic Novel-Format. Dieser schließt direkt an den 1. Teil an. Wer also weder die TV-Serie bis zum Ende gesehen hat, noch den 1. Teil de Graphic Novel-Reihe kennt, sollte nun aufhören zu lesen. Spoiler sind leider unvermeidbar.SpoileranfangDer 1. Teil endete mit einem Supergau - Luzifer hat sich aus der Unterwelt erhoben, indem er vom toten Körper Vanessa Ives Besitz ergriff, die Toten erheben sich, gewinnen an Macht und Sir Malcolm ist tot. Nur eine kleine Gruppe scheint sich der Macht des Bösen entgegenzustellen und versucht diese zu bekämpfen. Mr. Chandler, Lily und ihre Schwestern, Miss Hartdegen und nun auch Dr. Frankenstein. Für dieses schier unmögliche Unterfangen benötigen sie die Hilfe einer Kreatur derer sie niemals wieder begegnen wollten.SpoilerendeIn diesem Teil kreuzen weitere Bekannte aus der TV-Serie unseren Weg, welche wir im 1. Teil vermisst haben - Dorian Gray, Victor Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll bzw. Mr. Hide und auch Renfield, welcher nun für die beiden Doktoren arbeitet.Die wundervoll typisch düstere Atmosphäre durch Illustration und Farbgebung wird auch hier beibehalten. Wer bezüglich der Illustratoren mehr Information haben möchte, kann sich meine Rezension zum 1. Teil "Penny Dreadful - The Awaking" durchlesen.Auch für schwarzen Humor wird hier wieder gesorgt, diesmal durch die mutige und unkonventionelle Thanatologin Miss Hartdegen.Meines Erachtens geht es hier jedoch wesentlich spannender zur Sache als im 1. Teil. Dies liegt vor allem an den ein oder anderen Actionszenen, aber vor allem an einigen überraschenden Wendungen. Chris King schafft es hier den Leser mehrmals durch den Storyverlauf zu überraschen und natürlich endet die Geschichte wieder mit einem riesigen Cliffhanger.Dieser Teil kommt somit der TV-Serie wesentlich näher und ich bin dieser Graphic Novel-Serie vollends verfallen."Ethan, there is a reason Satan has pursned the mother of evil for centuries.In order to rule earth, he needs a child.Now that Satan has taken the form of the mother of evil,he will have the absility to give birth to the Anti-Christ."​Am Ende der Story gibt es wieder ein paar Illustrations- und Cover-Schmankerln.Fazit:Der 2. Teil der Graphic Novel-Serie "Penny Dreadful" konnte mich sogar einen Ticken mehr begeistern.War ich beim 1. Teil hauptsächlich froh, dieser Reihe, wenn auch auf andere Art und Weise, wieder folgen zu können, so bin ich mit diesem Teil vollends in dieser Fortsetzung und somit der neuen Story angekommen. Spannender, fesselnder und auf jeden Fall actionreicher gestaltet sich dieser Teil. Hinzu kommen mehrere überraschende Wendungen, die man so nicht erwartet hätte.Nun kann ich es nicht mehr erwarten den 3. Teil zu lesen, welcher im Herbst 2018 erscheint.

    Side note, this is the wrong description on GoodReads, correct title and correct cover, but this is Volume 2, not Volume 3. I know because I am holding the physical copy in my hand, and it is volume 2 :). If you were a fan of the show, you must pick up continuation graphic novel. Its dark and horror filled and does great justice to the show. It picks up up where the show left off.

    I’m really enjoying the continuation of the Penny Dreadful story, but i feel as if this was another arc of the TV show that we didn’t get to see on screen. I’m excited to see what happens next

    This would’ve been great to watch as season 4 of the show. Really ties a lot of threads together from the three seasons. I imagine the next volume will tie in the prequel comic too.

    Devoted 'Penny Dreadful' fan here. It's my favorite television show by far. Beautiful sets, amazing characters, superb acting, awesome setting, great plots, etc. The predecessor to this graphic novel, 'The Awaking', definitely did the television series justice. 'The Beauteous Evil', not so much. The drawings seem rushed and make it difficult to interpret what exactly is going on in each image. Surprising since the same artist illustrated 'The Awaking' and those were noticeably better. Maybe they Devoted 'Penny Dreadful' fan here. It's my favorite television show by far.

'The Beauteous Evil', not so much. The drawings seem rushed and make it difficult to interpret what exactly is going on in each image. Surprising since the same artist illustrated 'The Awaking' and those were noticeably better. Maybe they were pressed for time with this one? Not sure. Besides the illustrations, I found 'Beauteous Evil' committed two egregious sins that I can't ignore. *SPOILERS* ..............Sin Number One:Lily and Ethan. Um....first off...did Chris King forget all about Lily's personality and character development in the television show? She is fiercely independent and struggling to find herself in a world ruled by the patriarchy. She is reborn. The woman who loved Ethan (Brona) is for all intents and purposes, dead. She is no longer Brona. She is Lily. And I find it hard to believe that a woman who has been through all that Lily has would suddenly say to herself, "Oh guess what, I'm in love with Ethan." .....Not to mention the fact that I ship Ethan and Vanessa together forever and anything that does not support that makes me bitter. Is Vanessa dead? Yes. Do I expect Ethan to live a life fighting paranormal foes and remaining devoted to her forever? Yes. Sorry not sorry.Sin Number Two:You. killed. Sir. Malcolm. I'm pretty pissed about it. You killed Vanessa in the show (which I'll obviously never recover from) and now you go and kill Sir Malcolm?! Why though?! I find him integral to the series, the lynch pin that brought all of the main players together, and you eliminate him?! No, thank you. As hard as it is to accept a 'Penny Dreadful' universe without Vanessa...it's impossible to accept one without Sir Malcolm. ....Plus I wanted him to be in a relationship with Cat, buuuuut I guess that's not happening now *angry face*. There's no Vanessa, no Dorian, no Lyle, no Sir Malcolm, no Sembene, no creature. Who the heck are you leaving me with? Ethan, Lily, Victor, and Cat? Don't get me wrong, I think they're all great characters, but I feel like that lineup is a little lackluster. In my opinion, if you're a devoted fan of the 'Penny Dreadful' show, I think you'll enjoy 'The Awaking', but won't be pleased by 'The Beauteous Evil'. I'm curious to see what other fans think.

    This is the correct cover and title (The Beauteous Evil), but the volume number is wrong. This is Volume 2.

    This is the third installment following the Penny Dreadful series finale. A series which I live more than anything because they are 3 "horror" stories that I simply adore. They were avante garde, before their time, stories that simply.made one think of the consequences of their actions and their spirit. This particular graphic was beautifully drawn and made me stop many times just to admire the picture. However, the pictures themselves were not the most important items in and of themselves.

This particular graphic was beautifully drawn and made me stop many times just to admire the picture. However, the pictures themselves were not the most important items in and of themselves. While they blended with the plot very well, the writing (the commentary) was still well within the characters and their personalities. My only issue with the graphics is how short they are. I would like to have a few more pages in each installment. This issue is one that I have with all comic book style graphics. But it doesn't stop me from enjoying them. I rate this novel 4 out of 5 stars and cannot wait for the next graphic.

    Not entirely sure how this is Volume 3, since there wasn't a Volume 2... As much as I love Penny Dreadful the show, the graphic novels are not living up to my expectations. The artwork is messy and difficult to follow. The storyline is The End of the World ...again... Even the relationship between Ethan and Vanessa (even if it's really Lucifer) is bungled. Dorian's dead, Malcom's dead, ash is raining from the sky. Ho hum. Just doesn't strike my fancy.

    3-3,5 stars.The story is excellent, and very much in the vein of the previous graphic novel and the tv series, however.. I find the art to be less to my liking. It’s too grungy and I feel that the characters’ facial expressions get lost in the heavy inky strokes of the artist. I will be continuing this series, though, because I’ll take anything to do with Penny Dreadful.

    Only the ending made me interested in continuing the story because the first half of this graphic novel made me want to quit. I'm not the biggest fan of the graphic novel format, everything feels forced, too fast and nothing develops naturally. Ah well.. we'll see what volume 3 has to offer.
