    A combination of horror and folklore bring an engaging and creepy story. Set in Ireland, among the Gaelic/Celtic mythology of the Sluagh, this is the story of a family cursed for centuries. Only select members of the family can "see" and this book centres on a young woman, Orla, and her Granny, both with the sight. Orla's dad had his soul taken from him in death and now her little brother is in danger of the same. This is the story of the sacrifices she makes for her family. The art is gorgeous, especially the covers and even though not numbered as a Vol. 1, the ending does leave us to know that there is much more to come.

    As they say in Spinal Tap, this one goes to 11. Yes, I am aware goodreads is only a 5 star rating system, and yes, it still gets an 11!I received a signed copy of this as a gift from my special lady (thanks to both Colin and Anika!) after reading the individual issues and falling in love with the series.Colin Lorimer does an amazing job with this series. It is a fantastic fantasy/horror story, wonderfully written and executed. My only disappointment was that my local comic shop had it originally listed as a 6 part series and it ended up only being 5 issues. Hopefully someday we will see a return to the dark and disturbing, yet colourful and beautiful, world of The Hunt.Colin's artwork is second to none, I feel he is probably the most underrated artist in the comic business. After reading this series I went on to find other works he has done. Although he has worked with some amazing writers he really proves with this series that he doesn't need anyone to provide a background for his incredible dark art. Colin completely knocked this work out of the park. I couldn't possibly say enough good things about this series, nor could I thank Colin enough for bringing this great work to life. I would also like to commend Joana and Jim for their contributions to the book, as it all came together so beautifully.In short: READ THIS! Then go buy anything and everything this man has done. You will not be disappointed. You can thank me (and more importantly Colin) later.

    I won this comic a while back in a good reads giveawayI love the darn thing. The art is gorgeous, now there are some pretty nasty bits in there too, but the style and color, especially the woods of the other side. It's just beautifully colored and very flowey. The characters feel real, to me, they feel like they're genuinely going through some shit while trying to deal with day to day life. I mean how many people find out the monsters in the woods are real, and are coming after you, and still manage normalcy??The plot is a fairly slow build even though from the beginning it lets its readers know that we're dealing with monsters. This is good, a slow exposition to the big problem, interesting enough to keep you going but not so slow that it drags.I've added this to my body horror shelf because, while I don't think the monsters are that scary looking, a monster combined with a human shell, and then what happens to Olly, is pretty jarring because the build up to it is very well down. It's slow, you know somethings off, but it's vague, and it gets under Orla's skin, which makes the audience more unnerved, and I especially love that the layout of the pages managed to play a part in it. Having the reveal come right after a page is turned [the odd numbered page], so it's got the surprise factor. instead of being on the even numbered page and losing power by being seen before the words build up to it. This might not make that great of sense so just take my word for it that the buildup is good, and the page layout works in its favor.I also love that it incorporates the dialect in the characters word bubbles, I had me quite a laugh when I started reading it, had to read some parts out loud. We need more of this in all books everywhere. Even more I love that our protagonist, while doing something as dangerous as facing the monsters head on, does so in a clever way, she works deftly with her grandmother to outsmart these creatures because there is really no way for a human to beat one in a fair fight.Honestly I just want more, I want to see what happens, I wanna know if Orla is alright. I wanna know what happened to Olly. I wanna see granny healing and kicking butt. I need more.

    A different take on a child coping with the death of a parent, The Hunt goes on to tell the story of Orla Roche, a girl who was there with her father on his deathbed. The difference? She saw The Sluagh take his soul. Years later, Orla is trying to find it, thinking and believing that it's trapped in some part of the netherworld. This begins her journey for answers and she gets more than she bargains for. I think that there really is no true way to grieve. My mom has been gone a long time and I still grieve for her, everyday, try to find her in the little things I say and do. And it's hard. Very hard. But I have to just wait until the day I die to ask her if I did ok and if she's pregnant our of me and my choices. And that's ok. That's what this story reminded me of. So I viscerally related to it. The illustrations were scary but fantastic and it struck the right balance between the two. I loved it.

    I actually really enjoyed this graphic novel. This TPB contains all the issues of The Hunt in one volume.This graphic novel is set in modern day but deals with evil fae that suck the souls from sick humans. It’s a very dark and somewhat gory story. However I really enjoyed the fae mythology in here and enjoyed the horror themed spin on it all.The illustration is amazing, I especially loved the scenes in the fairy realm. The colors are rich and beautiful and the graphic novel is easy to follow.Things are left kind of open ended but the main storyline is tied up. It would be great to see future graphic novels set in this world.Overall I really liked this. This was a well done blend of horror and fae mythology. I would recommend to those who enjoy fantasy horror graphic novels.

    Dark engaging comic collection about Irish supernaturalBased in Ireland, this comic collection deals with Orla who witnesses a supernatural event affecting her father when she's just a little girl. A significantly good artist, as a teenager, she faces the bullying of her classmates. The plot proceeds quickly as Orla confronts the Sluagh about their interference in her family's lives as they gather souls to maintain their existence.With clear illustrations, this mystery story is well worth a look. It's gripping and engaging stuff. I think that this is a one-off collection rather than a series. I hope so as the ending should be a final one.

    A terrifying story with a beautiful endingThe legends of fairies come from ancient Celtic legends. what if the Fae are still with us? How would they interact with our world? This graphic novel shares a tale of the Wild Hunt and forces us to ask: who exactly is the prey?Excellent storytelling and spectacular artwork!

    How would you even begin to explain the plot of this comic? Because I’m definitely incapable to trying to fully explain what The Hunt is all about. And the synopsis isn’t the best either. I’m intrigued to see where the story goes (if that ever happens, since these five issues are the only ones that are out). Anyway, it’s not bad.

    I have serious mixed feelings about this one - loved the art. Didn't care for much of the dialog. The story plot itself fell a little flat in places and over all I just wish there was more explanation into things.

    I thought I would love this. It's got several elements I love in a story: Irish folklore, horror, female protagonists...but dear lord, is it ever incoherent and randomly constructed. Could have benefited from an editor.

    A little creepy, loved how the story unfolded, the feeling of not knowing where i'm being taken. Really want to keep going with this series.

    Not bad. Not really my type of horror story really but I thought it ended up being pretty good & the artwork was good too.

    The artwork is simply stunning, and the premise of the soul-stealing spirits was interesting, but it didn't quite 'grab' me. The dialect also kept throwing me off - I had to read slowly and carefully. I am curious about the next issue, nonetheless, as it has certainly been set up to be exciting.

    Okay. to be honest I had no idea what I was getting into since I don't consider myself a "comic" kind of guy but I can say it was very pleasantly surprised by this folklore inspired horror comic book. It's a modern day tale set in Ireland between 3 different warring factions in fairie. The story and art worked hand and hand together to provide a dark, gripping tale of family and loss among the supernatural. Hopefully, there will be more of "The Hunt" in the future. Orla is a teenager with the sight. Most people think she's crazy, because she can see through changelings glamours and is constantly drawing their true faces.
