Review: HAIRBALL by Matt Kindt


Rating: 1.25/5 stars 

I'd never heard of this graphic novel before and just happened to see it as available to download on Edelweiss. Pitched as Junji Ito meets Hayao Miyazaki, Hairball seemed like the perfect story for me because I love Hayao Miyazaki and I'm becoming more and more interested in horror stories this year. Plus, I love cats. 

Unfortunately, I did not like this book. I didn't care for the actual story, the characters, and especially not for the art style. The art was almost hard to look at, it was so bad. 

I really don't know who to recommend this book to, because it's definitely not one for Hayao Miyazaki fans. If you are interested in a cat that's a literal demon and is tearing a little girl's life apart to the point that she starts going crazy and has to go to therapy because of this cat, then you might enjoy this book. But it wasn't for me.
