Graphic Novel Review: The Girls of Dimension 13 by Graham Nolan

Title: The Girls of Dimension 13
Author: Graham Nolan
Artist: Bret Blevins
Genre: Comics, Graphic Novel; Magic
Publication Date: January 11, 22
Publisher: Aftershock Comics

Four young women are brought together by a mysterious invitation to live in a creepy building in NYC. They soon learn that the building houses a portal to the other twelve known dimensions, and that a malevolent creature known as Abraxis has bound these dimensions together, enslaving them to his will. For centuries, the portal has been guarded by a gatekeeper to prevent the evil on the other side from gaining access to OUR dimension.

Now the gatekeeper, Anna Nightlinger, is missing, and the only thing standing in Abraxis’ way is a quartet of young women with powers and abilities they don’t even know they have…for now.



*A Thank you to Edelweiss+ for allowing me to read this. This is my honest and unbiased review*
Hello Fellow Readers,
I don't mean to start off negative but unfortunately, I just didn't like this comic. Now not everything is negative there were some positives. The premise is very interesting and had a lot of potential, if the story went longer I could see myself really getting invested. Also, the artwork was good, and I love the use of different colors and art styles.
Now, while I did like the premise to the story everything just felt incredibly rushed, which was very frustrating for me. The characters were also a bit lackluster and I had no interest in them. Most (except Abby) were underdeveloped or I just did not like them. I really wish that we were able to get to know the characters more but alas we didn't. So I felt a very distinct disconnect from it.
Overall, Not for me but maybe for you.
