Book Description
The destinies of most people are defined early on. Then there are the others - the lost. Those whose numbers aren't in yet, who could go toward the light or toward the darkness - indeed, who could be tipped one direction or another. And everything starts with the book. That's what Jonathan is about to discover. When he took a suicide plunge off the London Bridge more than a century ago, the last place he expected to land was on his feet, in the present, standing at the entrance to a tunnel into a world of mysteries beyond his wildest imagination. A world of powers and principalities and, above all, rules that he'd best learn quickly. Or he'll have to deal with the Dark Man. And what the Dark Man can't turn, he devours. Collects Book of Lost Souls #1-6.

    I was very pleased when I found that JMS had written a graphic novel that wasn't about superheros! I was particularly excited as the art was by Collen Dorran who was one of the first artists/writers that I became a fan of when I was reading comic books as a teenager. Collecting all her various early renditions of A distant soil. Her art work is still lovely and the pages are a rich and detailed and full of colour. Having read so many black and white comics lately this made a lovely change.

    The book was listed as Book of Lost Souls vol. 1 but I have been unable to locate any other volumes. I don't know if the comics continued after the ones collected here. It was nice to read something that felt like individual comics rather than a graphic novel. There was a storyline and plot being introduced but through self contained stories. Once again the wome were a little weaker than I would have liked, there was an abused wife, a homeless woman who'd lost her boyfriend and a prostitute. They were the lost souls that needed "saving". There were forces of light and dark and people whose destiny had not yet been decided and a strange man with powers that let him affect people's lives. When written out it sounds quite trite but it was actually much more enjoyable to read and I wish that they'd done more of the series and gone further with it.
