Exquisite Corpse - Penelope Bagieu

I was sadly disappointed in this comic. The art is wonderful and it seem like a decent set up: an attractive, but uninspired girl meets a shut-in, older, author with writers block and a bizarre secret. Together, they inspire each other. Seems simple enough, but it takes about half the book before the story really starts and it's all leaning to what are supposed to be shocking twists, but none of the characters are good enough to make me really care about them, or bad enough to make me want anything negative to happen to them. Some of the events come out of nowhere (sorry, it is not a twist when there's no basis for an event to take place), and the whole book reads like a pitch idea for what might be a clever movie if any of the characters were actually developed. exquisite corpse
