Cirque Du Freak: The Manga, Vol. 1 by Darren Shan
Release Date: 2009-06-09
The world of internationally acclaimed author Darren Shan’s Cirque Du Freak brought to life as you’ve never seen it before!
Darren Shan was an average kid until destiny brought him to the Cirque Du Freak. Now Darren’s been immersed into a shadowy world inhabited by vampires, werewolves and strange creatures the likes of which he’s never imagined, and his life will be changed forever!
Coming from the mind of Darren O’Shaughnessy (Ergo: Darren Shan), the author of the Demonata Series, comes a tale of a self-named boy, Darren Shan and his adventures. Darren is only an elementary school kid who loves spiders, but when rumors that Cirque Du Freak is in town, Darren gets excited to see Madam Octa, the spider that is partnered with The Mysterious Mr.Crepsley. With his friend Steve Leonard, he goes to a Circus full of off the wall, mature carnies. What could possibly go wrong?
This first volume is a great story, though very grim at times. I could go into detail about this… but I’d end up spoiling the whole story, so you should see for yourselves! If you liked the Demonata, and other fiction stuff I recommend that you read this.
Personal Rating 9.5/10 (-0.5 Because there was lacking “elements” in some scenes.)
