Troll would haunt him long into manhood As the beast sups upon a lifetime of Jack's fear. This is a superb graphic novel version of a fantastic Gaiman short story Colleen Doran has truly embodied Gaiman's vision here with an ever present unsettling and haunting atmosphere Her artwork is astounding and I uickly found myself immersed in her illustrationsAs for the story it's beautifully poetic and nostalgic following a character named Jack from childhood to adulthood Jack is a hard character to like because he comes across as self absorbed and heartless when it comes to the feelings of other people second encounter with troll involving Louise and later with his wife However having learned about his failures in later life Jack does stay true to his word and visits the troll a third and final time whereby the troll under the bridge eats Jack's life and takes his identity with it thus leaving Jack as the troll beneath the bridge It's an ending that always gets me because it conveys so much sadness but is done in such a subtle and delicate way A beautiful read that will stay with you

Troll BridgeYoung Jack's world was full of ghosts and ghouls but one monster a ravenous and hideous. Are all troll stories deeply allegorical I don't know but this one is Colleen Doran beautifully and thoughtfully illustrates this NT Times bestseller a story from Gaiman about a sweet and sensitive boy who as a young boy encounters a troll who threatens him I'll eat your life The troll is not just a troll here let's say If he were just a troll the troll would say Pay me a toll to get under or over this bridge or I will eat you maybe And maybe even that is allegorical something about the necessity of facing various horrors as you are growing up the toll exacted by trolls And this story is called The Troll Bridge and not Troll where and I won't tell you the surprise ending the bridge or is it the bridge figures inThe boy puts off the troll's eating him initially offering his sister in exchange then offering on another occasion that he will come back later when he is older and fatter the better to be eaten by the troll then years later offering his girlfriend instead of himself Increasingly he's less and less sweet and and selfish seeeming There's an undercurrent of darkness and sadness in this story that also features a complicated central theme of sexuality one that makes for a richer and certainly unsettling conclusion There is not a neat and simple moral here thankfully but a it's a great fairy tale of unraveling for adults about growing up And depending on how one interprets all the sexual information in the story there may be an opportunity on the role of sexuality for this boy in that unraveling It's not primarily a child's text finally though if a kid happened to pick it up there would be an occasion for talk here definitely
