The Silver Eyes Graphic Novel is the newest release from DC comics and we will discuss it here. The storyline is done in a high fantasy type of way, but still has the characteristic style of the comic books. I have always liked DC comic books and the graphic novels, but after reading The Silver Eyes Graphic Novel I think I will also start liking DC comic books again. I am not going to go into great detail, but let me tell you that after reading this novel it was highly recommended to me by a good friend of mine. I know that some people might not like the novel, but I found it to be an enjoyable read and I am definitely going to get a copy of the next issue to read.
The story is set in a city called New Gotham City, which is located on the east coast of the United States. The Silver Eyes graphic novel begins with an interesting sequence that will explain more about the city of New Gotham and the characters who live in it. The story told is that there are five specters that roam the streets of the city and they are the descendants of those who died during the tragic plague. With the help of a professor the reader is introduced to the world of The Silver Eyes, as they battle the evil clutcher named The Phantom.
The Phantom is the main antagonist of The Silver Eyes graphic novel and he is played by Edger Allen. He is described as a man in his late thirties, with a deep dark skin and pale white eyes. He wears a mask that is very similar to the masks used by the witches in the olden days, which are known as "The White witch". In the early years of the plot, we get to learn more about the background of The Phantom and how he became the villain that he is today. This is done in a very interesting manner that keeps the reader interested.
The Silver Eyes Graphic Novel follows the history of the characters featured in the comics, which is called The Phantom. It is told in a very fluid and concise way that keeps the story moving. One of the best parts of this novel is that all the characters are given a voice. There is even a scene where we get to hear what The Phantom's girlfriend has to say about his past and future. In the end of the novel, we are also shown a few clues as to what really happened to the characters featured in the comic books and this adds to the fluidity of the story. The Silver Eyed Fiends does an excellent job of combining history with mythology, which is something that very few comic book writers are able to do.
The plot of the book is centered around the main character of The Phantom, who was born under a symbol of fortune called the Eye of Osiris. His birth is marked by a massive ceremony where a young woman named Rhea sacrifices her life for him. The sacrifice causes Rhea's spirit to enter The Phantom's body and she becomes the new Phantom. Although she was made out of the material world, her soul is pure and she can be a conduit to The Phantom's world.
The Silver Eyed Fiends follows the adventures of The Phantom and his faithful companion, Tilly. Although the book is fantasy, it does not shy away from using real world materials. There is a whole city in the North of England called Eastside. This is where The Phantom operates and where the book takes place. The city is populated with normal humans who are called Eastside locals, but there are also creatures such as mermaids, unicorns and dragons.
The story kicks off when Rhea is kidnapped by a corporation called The World. From this point onwards, The Silver Eyed Fiends takes on the persona of The Phantom and begins travelling around The World. He saves the locals in the area and fights against monsters and creatures, although he remains a secret for some time. Eventually, Rhea recovers and reveals all and the book moves on to The World headquarters. The Silver Eyed Fiends meets The Phantom again and becomes another part of his adventure.
The Phantom also has other supporting characters including his sidekicks Tilly and Jody. They also have an array of vehicles which include a Batwing and helicopter. I enjoyed this book very much and would recommend it to any young children. The Silver Eyes Graphic Novel is the modern take on the Batman stories and although it contains some adult language and scenes, I find that the story is suitable for younger viewers. The story is exciting, imaginative and contains fantastic set designs and images.
