Many years before Charles Manx met Victoria McQueen, he bought his first car, a Wraith. Here begins the long horrifying story of Charles Manx; the story of how Christmasland and NOS4A2 came to be.
Superb art work! The was a bit weak and didn't always match up with NOS4A2, and there were some holes about Manx's past that were mentioned in NOS4A2, but I do not think I would have noticed it as much had I not read them back to back. No matter what, it was great to see where it all started. Definitely a great read, and beautiful art work.
I recommend reading it, but read it after you have read NOS4A2. Because Wraith is a weaker story, I don't think I would have been as motivated to read NOS4A2 if I had read this one first.
