'Edward Scissorhands Volume 2: Whole Again' by Kate Leth and art by Drew Rausch continues the adventure of Megs and Edward. Megs is the grandaughter of Kim from the movie.

After the events of the last volume, the townspeople have come together to help spruce up Edward's castle. New light fixtures and furniture and a new tv with a kevlar plated remote. Edward doesn't know what to think of tv, but he is intrigued by a reality tv show called Get Wells, where a tv host helps people transform their lives. Edward sees it as a chance to have normal hands, but Megs has misgivings. Perhaps Megs is right to have misgivings.

Edward is just as good a character as he ever is, with his lost look and his memories of the past. Megs mother finds her mother Kim's diary. That has repercussions for her relationship with Edward. The theme of being okay with yourself are strong here. The art by Drew Rausch is detailed, and he throws little easter eggs into his drawings for the discerning viewer. I think I liked the first volume a bit better, but this one isn't bad at all.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
