SUMMARY Spontaneous

CHARACTERS Ã Spontaneous ð Phenomenon conspiracy or delusion Kelvin Melvin Reyes was only three years old when Spontaneous Human Combustion took his father from him He's since devoted his life to exploring the mystery behind the phenomenon searching for a pattern and predictors that he might save others from that same fiery fate But the closer he gets to hE But the closer he gets to his goal the further things lead down a well of secrets horrors and terrible truths Is SHC real And if so can it be stopped. Reason for Reading Once upon a time when I was a wacky teenager I was really into spontaneous human combustion and read lots of stuff about it Couldn't get over the creepy photographs I couldn't pass this one byThis novel didn't really do too much for me It was ok good ok But that is all The artwork is not a style that impresses me much Simple sketching and pages done in monotones with the colours changing to reflect the atmosphere emotion of the scene being played out What bothered me the most was that the story couldn't seem to decide whether it was going to be paranormal or not So it hovered between having a rational explanation and going off on a paranormal twist which just didn't work for me I would have liked the story much better if the old guy's powers had been omitted then it would have been a satisfactory combination of paranormal into the ordinary I'd pick this one up at the library for a uick read unless maybe you collect SHC stuff

Kelvin has an obsession with fire after tragic events in his family Behind the truth of the deaths by fire of people Kelvin has touched has a sinister background ending in a Pyrrhic victory of sorts for a gonzo journalist trying to break a story around the deaths This starts off strong but fizzles out as the true villains are revealed with just a few too many winks at Stephen King for my liking which threw me out of the story Brett Wedele's art feels a bit like Ben Templesmith's and that's appropriate but sometimes makes it harder to follow the plotIf you're a big Harris fan worth looking for but otherwise nothing to send out an ILL for for example

SpontaneousVoted his life to exploring the mystery behind the phenomenon searching for a pattern and predictors that he might save others from that same fiery fat. Background Melvin was only three when his father died of a horrible combustion otherwise known to Melvin as Spontaneous Human Combustion Melvin is now older and trying to place the puzzle pieces together about why his father died and what is going on with the others that have had the same blistering deathReview This was an interesting read It is a graphic novel with beautiful artwork however the character close ups all look pretty similar so it can get confusing at times The story line was interesting Melvin’s character meets up with an aspiring journalist and together they try to solve the mystery of spontaneous human combustion Melvin is enthusiastic to search because he wants to explain away what happened to his father so the story jumps right into another person dying of a horrible accident The story seems like it would be an interesting one the main issue I had with it was its terseness the story doesn’t have time to develop the plot as much as I would have liked it to and the characters are underdeveloped because of it The overall idea behind the story is what kept me reading I think the spontaneous fiery death thing has a lot going for it however overall it fell a little shorter than I had hoped the ending was a bit of a cop out If it had been a little lengthier I think the ending would have fit nicer once we got to know the characters
