I received a copy of Tortured Life from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

My only complaint with this one is that it was so short.  I could have lived in this graphic novel for a much longer time.

Because so much happens in this story, it's hard to sum up.  Basically, Richard has lived in isolation for several weeks because he's begun seeing the ways everyone around him will die.  And he can't turn it off.  When he's about to end himself he's approached by the ghost of Alice, a girl who died under strange circumstances, who asks him to find her father and figure out what really happened.

I loved, loved, loved the story.  I found myself eager to turn every page, uncover each mystery.  And I was met by an extreme amount of surprises that kept me off my guard and eager to discover the truth.  It was a bit weird at times, but I embraced and loved the weird aspects of it.

My one dream is for someday this to be turned into a TV series.  Each chapter could be a season and it would be beautiful and people would love it.

The art was rather nice, and while it wasn't my favorite, it worked to enhance the story.

I really recommend that you add this one to goodreads, so click here to do that.
