Antimony Carver is a precocious and preternaturally self-possessed young girl starting her first year of school at gloomy Gunnerkrigg Court, a very British boarding school that has robots running around along side body-snatching demons, forest gods, and the odd mythical creature. The opening volume in the series follows Antimony through her orientation year: the people she meets, the strange things that happen, and the things she causes to happen as she and her new friend, Kat, unravel the mysteries of the Court and deal with the everyday adventures of growing up. Tom Siddell's popular and award-winning webcomic (www.gunnerkrigg.com) is here collected in print for the first time.

For one of my first graphic novels, this is a great read! A bit strange, but worth it for the wonderful artwork and storyline!! :)

Awesome! Odd but in a good way. Don't judge it by the abstract illustrations at the beginning, the style quickly changes. Make sure to check it out online ( it's a web comic, this is just a compilation ) because there are like 4 more volumes- worth!

Have now read all 3 volumes; hope that there will be more.

High production values, well done, with somewhat quirky/whimsical stories, but the stories are too short and the overall impression is that it is a tad anemic. But also, overall, not a bad read, and it gets better as the plots slowly thicken.
