'Camp Midnight' by Steven T. Seagle with art by Jason Katzenstein is a story about how summer camp can be a nightmare. I really liked this story.
Skye lives with her mom and spends time with her dad and his new wife. This summer instead of spending time with her dad, she is being sent off to summer camp. When a bus mix-up gets her on the wrong bus, she finds herself at a very different camp. For one, the camp day starts after the sun has gone down. For another, the other campers look normal at first , but then things change. She soon finds herself surrounded by monsters. But along the way, Skye finds a way to make it work out. She meets a friend, gets good advice from a camp counselor, and other things happen.
I found the premise fun and the lessons learned along the way by Skye were really good. The art is kind of frenetic and I wasn't sure if I liked it at first, but it goes well enough with the story and the kind of jump out at you nature of the story. This is a fun one for young readers and tell a great story about triumphing as an outsider.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Image Comics, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
