    You need to watch the show in order to understand this but UGH loved it. It was filled with the same weirdness, darkness & humour from the show

Of course the illustrations were wonderful, but it definitely didn’t make up for the rest of the mess. If you’re an Over the Garden Wall fan, I’d just skip this graphic novel and buy one of the other ones.

    Actual rating: 3.5 I feel kind of bad for all the kids who are going to randomly pick this up at my library, since I'm pretty sure this makes almost no sense out of context, but for someone like me who has watched the mini-series over half a dozen times, I enjoyed it.

(I would have put it in with the YA graphic novels myself instead of the kid's room, but I just shelve the books, I'm not in charge of where they go.) Yeah, a few. Does it seem like it was written by a hardcore Wirt x Beatrice shipper? Oh, absolutely. But did it have adorable illustrations, amusing jokes, and fun dialogue that really captured the characters voices so that I could hear exactly how the voice actors would have said those lines? Yeah. It did. Did it need to exist? No. Am I still happy to have read it? Yeah.

    Over the Garden Wall is a show that I watched with friends for the first time overtwo years ago. Ever since I finished the show, I've wanted to dive back into the world, reading various comics that have come out, enjoying the artwork, and connecting with others who love the show. This graphic novel does not disappoint when it comes to feeling like another episode. It's well written, well plotted, and well illustrated. I want more. Okay thanks.

    Not what I was expecting! This book was creepy, cute and cool. If you know the series you’ll be excited to see who the boys run into. The art was great. This book had some really funny moments too. I would recommend that you know the tv show but you don’t have to know any of the other books in order to understand this one.

    If you enjoy Beatrice and Wirt's relationship, you'll probably enjoy this book. The story itself is a fun, surreal adventure that takes us back to Wirt and Greg's home for a bit (with an out of place visitor) and has a twist that makes sense considering when this book happens in the timeline of the series. I loved it as much as the other comics in this series. :D

    So much fun! If this is the direction they're going in for future comics in the series, I'd be very happy.

    The Over the Garden Wall comics have been hit or miss for me, though never missing by that much. The truth is I'm so in love with the world first introduced in the animated series that I'm ecstatic it gets to live on somehow, and was thrilled that there would be some new graphic novels released in addition to the regular comic series.

It doesn't involve much of the beauty of The Unknown, but it's still quite a fun story; even though it might suffer from some 'reset button syndrome', the characters and their relationships are further developed.

    Love love love Over the Garden Wall and I can’t believe that for nearly six months I forgot they were releasing a graphic novel! It was great, I love the art, and Greg is a human cinnamon roll as always.

    Probably the most accurately-written tie-in that wasn't actually by Pat McHale. Jonathan Case clearly ships Wirt and Beatrice hard (me too, bro, me too).

    Okay, this is much more like it. You can tell the massive difference between writers here; Jonathan Case is able to much more successfully adapt the weird creativity of the show to graphic novel form. It's funny and sweet and a little bit creepy, with a constant focus on the characters that keeps it fresh and engaging. I don't entirely love the actual plot - I feel like it kind of takes away from the end of the show, which this comic also did a much better job reminding me of by touching on bits Okay, this is much more like it.

I don't entirely love the actual plot - I feel like it kind of takes away from the end of the show, which this comic also did a much better job reminding me of by touching on bits of storyline without actually rehashing it - but it was still a very fun read that I think most fans of the show would appreciate. (Sara really got an unfairly short end of the stick here though.) And there was a line I laughed at and wrote down, because it perfectly describes the difference between this and the markedly inferior Over The Garden Wall Vol. 1. When Greg gets confused by something his older brother Wirt says, Beatrice explains, "What Wirt's trying to say, Greg, is that he's a nerd. Poets and philosophers are also nerds, and they all love one thing best of all: to make simple stuff complicated." That's exactly the problem with the comics I read earlier, particularly with Anna's terribly dense, miserably unreadable story. It's so bloated and complex all the magic got sucked right out of it. Case is able to straddle that line between intelligent writing and language that's actually approachable - a skill that less talented or experienced writers don't always know how to leverage. This story, on the other hand, is clever without taking itself too seriously, and that's exactly why it works.

    The other "Over the Garden Wall" graphic novels have been loosely connected, prequels, interquels or side stories, but "Distillatoria" finally gives us that direct sequel to the original film that fans have clamored for. It's just as surreal as the original cartoon, sometimes more so, and a bit more winking in its old and new pop cultural references, but the haunting way it develops its story on dream logic, and the odd twists on the ending of the original film, make this one a worthwhile succes The other "Over the Garden Wall" graphic novels have been loosely connected, prequels, interquels or side stories, but "Distillatoria" finally gives us that direct sequel to the original film that fans have clamored for.

Diehard fans may question the way it retcons elements of the original finale, but given the way other comics in the series have progressed to erase the boundary between real life and the Unknown, this feels like fair play.

I really liked the twist in this one!

    I mean, if you love the cartoon series then you’ll love this book. It’s just a perfect extension. The silly humour, the weird events, the dark twists, the lovable characters. It was everything I expected, nothing more, and I’m completely satisfied with that. I just really love how I can never know quite what to expect with Over the Garden Wall and how easy it is to root for the relationships between Beatrice, Wirt, Greg, and the frog with many names.

    You really need to be a fan of the show to appreciate this graphic novel, which contains episode callbacks galore, many of which make very little sense without context. For anyone trying to use this as an access point to the show, you will find yourself unbelievably lost and probably a little dissuaded from pursuing it further. For those who are already big fans, some of it feels a little bit disjointed, as if too many moving parts have been shoe-horned in.

    Oh, this was a solid good story! I love the art, as always, and it's such a treat to revisit the characters from one of my favorite shows. I really enjoyed the creepy vibe this graphic novel had at times, specially contrasted with Greg's happy go lucky personality. The weirdness and darkness is always my favorite part. Also, the story was just interesting and cool. I didn't really enjoy some of the innuendo they included (I mean, they're kids), but at least it was very little.

    Extremely cute! This felt very much like an extension of the television series, and it wound up to its big plot reveal very subtly and naturally. The only parts that felt kind of out of place were the moments of, like, borderline raciness, which came as something of a shock since the miniseries is pretty solidly PG. Still, I had a lot of fun!

    this story works very well in comic but it would have ruined the tv show if it had been one of the episodes. i thought it was kinda of weird to have so many ~adult jokes on here, and quite unnecessary too. besides that, it was a good read... its always nice to go back into the unknown and revisit these lovely characters.

    you definitely need to watch over the garden wall before reading, as I imagine it wouldn’t make any sense without context, but for fans, this is really fun and entertaining. I had a great time reading and I easily finished it in one sitting :)

    Super cute and interesting new story set in the world of the Unknown. I could hear the voices of the characters from the TV show so clearly as I was reading, and the art is delightful! Great for an October read.

    First know the animation from a friend. I don't know if Distillatoria was include in the animation I watched, but maybe not. It's nice to see Wirt, Greg, and Beatrice again. Would like to read their other adventures.

    this reads like mediocre fan fiction, smthg which is ok to publish for superhero comics but not the greatest publishing material for indie comics/animation

    Probably my favorite of the Over The Garden Wall comics/graphic novels, it felt fresh and different and really kept the sinister vibes I loved in the show.

    Entertaining story, but im pretty sure you would need to see the show in order to understand it.

    Even though this book didn't do much to change the world the characters are in, I felt like they all had a lot of personal development through the sequences of events that happened.
