Summary: An all-new adventure revisiting Edward Scissorhands’ two decades after the end of the fan-favorite movie! In a castle just outside a sleepy suburban town, a brilliant inventor created Edward Scissorhands… but left him tragically unfinished. Two generations of exile have left Edward digging through abandoned experiments, but once he wakes up a creature left buried, he discovers he isn’t the only one missing a vital piece. As Edward tries to fix a grave mistake, he comes face-to-face with a teenage girl who was sure he was only myth… despite the stories her grandmother told her about the man she could never touch.

My Review:

Before I even start to review it, lets just talk about the art in this.

This. Is. Ridiculous. I mean, look at it! It’s gorgeous.


Next thing I freaked out about is that it’s, y’know, just a Tim Burton film. No big deal or anything. It’s not like he’s my favorite director. Psh, what?

Because I’m obsessed, back to this art for a second. I can’t wrap my head around how amazing it is. It’s so detailed and the colors are just perfection on every page. I can’t even describe it. I just love it.


Honestly, they’re just perfect.

I wasn’t sure if I would like this plot change because of how much I love the original but I actually really enjoyed the change. It’s basically picking up after the movie ended, except two generations later. I loved getting to know a new character versus all of the same ones from the movie that we already knew. Although, I definitely still them.


The ending did feel a bit rushed, but not enough to change how much I loved this thing. I can’t wait until I can get my hands on the next one, which needs to be asap. I’m already incredibly excited for it!

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!
