whats the riddle road?
RaeSeddon Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012
Finally sat down to read The Riddle Road yesterday in a fit of procrastination and I laughed so hard I gave myself a headache. I've always loved the dynamic between Edrear and Edaniel, and the Guildsman's Ball was a fantastic exploration of both of them--Edrear's insecurity, Endaniel's love of and loyalty to Elala and Eniri's memory...him decking Orion was *very* satisfying, more so than if it had been Edrear to throw the first punch. Also, it's cool to see Vincent dealing with *living* with Edrear and having to confront his own insecurity/jealously where Dinah is concerned. The universe you've created in Bizenghast is so complex and beautiful and rich, I'm so glad you took it upon yourself to keep it going after the manga series ended.

I'm looking forward to when new human agents are introduced, seeing Dinah and Vincent adjusting to their new roles with the added responsibility of looking after an agent will be a lot of fun.

oh wow, I just got The Riddle Road today and..
Is this how it went?:The living think that Dinah murdered Vincent, covered it up for a few months, and then, when she couldn't take the guilt (or craziness), killed herself behind the library?
Because, reading Volume 8, I always did wonder what everyone would think when they found Dinah, in public, with a huge, self-inflicted stab wound in her chest.
I've always been really into Vincent and his family, so it was kind of a punch to the gut that, NOW, Vincent's getting everything he wanted but in the worst way. Sucks to you, Male Classmate That's Into Bikes from volume 3, Vincent's got plenty to be upset about. Either way, I'm glad there was some resolution to that. Just really, really sad resolution.

Oh, cool. I guess that really was intentional. Because I've been sitting and thinking here... "gee, it's good that Dinah died, or else she would have gotten life in prison easy." She was the last to see the deceased. They know this because Jane can verify that they were meeting late every night-- and she knows that because the bike tracks are always visible in the morning. Jane could also probably verify that the two were having frequent arguments before the time of Vincent's death, seemingly over another boy (Edrear). Remember that Jane has believed the two were dating all along, constantly referring to Vincent as Dinah's "boyfriend." To her, it would seem as if Vincent had become too jealous and possessive and Dinah had become enraged by it. Dinah buried him right in his own backyard where anyone could find him and even got him a little angel headstone. Makes it look kind of like she killed him in a sudden fit of rage and then felt bad about it. Hers would be the only fingerprints on the evidence. I doubt that Tower Guards or ghosts leave any, and they were the only others to interact with the body. Perhaps worst of all, she made active attempts to cover up Vincent's death by telling Jane he was away with his parents. When the series looked like it was about to end abruptly, I was like, "Aw, this can't be used now." I'm so happy it ended up being used! I was eager to see that part of the plot develop! :D

I got and read Riddle Road vol. 1 and could not put it down. Oh how I love these characters. I didn't realize how I missed their interactions. Reading about the Guild and its members was pretty interesting. Dinah and Vincent raised some really good questions (that Edrear and Edaniel refused to answer....). Orion definitely seems to be the star of his guild, but I'm interested to see if the other members will interact with Bizenghast guild more. I'm excited to see if they'll get new human agent(s) and how different they'll be from Dinah/Vincent. Only complaint I had is that cliffhanger! How could you? I can't wait to read the next one.

I just got The Riddle Road yesterday and it was absolutely amazing. I didn't realize, even though not much time has passed since book 8 came out, how much I missed these characters until I opened up to the first page and started reading. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. The bits about all the different mausoleums and how they function were incredibly interesting, and Edaniel and Vincent's antics had me laughing out loud. The only thing I'd want more of is illustrations. It'd be super cool to see a couple sketches of Orion Bones and his crew :) As always, fantastic job Miss Legrow!

Received Riddle Road vol 1 yesterday and already read it. Very much enjoyed it. I like how it addresses things that never came up in the manga (i.e. How long could even Vincent's absentee parents go without realizing their kid was missing?), and it's cool to see more stuff about other mausoleums come up. I do miss having all the artwork, but I also feel like the narration makes the character development stronger, so I feel like it's a fair trade off.

I finally just bought the 8th volume because I finally got some money to do so! I can't wait to read it! And hopefully I'll be able to get Riddle Road too later on. xC

The Riddle Road was so funny and wonderful! The setup at the end was intense. The introduction of the Sulfur Queen crew had me giggling all night, and I loved all the descriptions of Edaniel's antics. I laughed very loudly quite often, & kinda disrupted the whole house a few times. Your stuff's always the best.

I was so excited to get this in the mail today. It was totally worth having to walk past the creepy old guy who hits on me in order to get it. Way more fun to read than all my bills, that's for sure.

Riddle Road one was so much fun to read, I really hope that you'll continue making more volumes of it. The world of the guildsmen is so much fun and the world building and mythology of their organization is really amazing and detailed and it's so interesting to see how similar it is to human society but at the same time is so different. I am so excited to see more of the puzzles and plot devices that go along with the stories. it seems like a lot of the symbolism and imagery has really evolved and improved since the earlier volumes of bizenghast. which isn't to say the guildsmen weren't cool from the start, but with all the added information and guidebook, they're much more evolved than just cool spooky people who help dinah and vincent solve puzzles.

the criads are really creepy and now all the pretty bizenghast mermaid illustrations have turned into some really scary things that go right up there next to the kiddie vampires in salem's lot in creepy books.
