Review by rayneofdarkness
Interesting gothic graphic novel I enjoyed it - read it with my nephew and he loved the story and the pictures. Some scared him a little bit but he's a bit of a chicken to begin with.

Stitch Head by Guy Bass is an illustrated novel about Professor Erasmus's first creation. Stitch Head, created before Erasmus was a mad scientist, has been doing his best for decades to keep his creator's creations under control.Now, though, Stitch Head is being wooed by a shady ringmaster looking for a new headliner for his traveling circus. He does his best to ignore these offers, while being followed around the castle by the latest creation — something resembling Frankenstein's monster.Besides the ring master and the usual chaos within the castle, the villagers are growing restless. Years and years of living in the shadow of Castle Grotteskew have made them wary — if not down right paranoid.In the background is Stitch Head's origin story and his desire to be loved again by his creator. The newest creation through question and answers helps Stitch Head rethink his unquestioning loyalty to Erasmus.It's an odd but memorable coming of age story. In terms of basic plot, and in the black and white illustrations, Stitch Head looks like something out of a Tim Burton film (Edward Scissorhands coming first to mind).
