The Neil Gaiman Library Volume 3 is a collection of Gaiman's short stories in graphic novel form. Some of them I had read before and some I hadn't but I enjoyed them all. But, as in every collection, I like some more than others. One, The Problem with Susan and Other Stories is actually a collection of several stories but the titular story resonated with me more than the others. In it, Gaiman tells the story of Susan, from The Narnia books, now grown up and a professor. I read those books when I was a very young girl and, like I suspect most little girls, I felt what happen to Susan was unfair but Gaiman gives her a better fate.

But my absolute favourite of all the stories was The Price, a tale that explains why cats tend to so often come home badly battered and bruised. Just to be clear, though, I may have favourites but there's plenty for everyone here from Gaiman's take on fairy tales to horror, even, in some cases, combining the two.

Each story is illustrated by a different artist and here again, I liked some better than others. Perhaps my favourite is Snow, Glass, Apples, Gaiman's rather unique take on the Snow White fairy tale. But although the art is done in several different styles, it all complements the respective tales very well.

I love Neil Gaiman's books and this collection definitely doesn't change my opinion. It is beautifully written and beautifully illustrated and I recommend it highly to fans of Gaiman, graphic novels, or just entertaining stories.I would add one caveat though for that rare reader who may not be aware of Gaiman's work. His comics and stories are aimed at adults and a couple of these tales are very sexually explicit both in the storyline and art.

Thanks to Edelweiss+ and Dark Horse Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review ( )
