Middle-grade graphic novel from R.L. Stine is too confusing to be enjoyed, despite promising sci-fi and horror themes

Just Beyond: The Scare School - R.L. Stine, Kelly Matthews, Nicole Matthews

Ultimately this was a pretty confusing read, and that’s not good when it comes to middle-grade reading, as the basic storyline should be easy to follow. The story even started as though a chapter was missing.

Given that the famed author R.L. Stine is adept at stringing a yarn or two together, I kept thinking it was going to become crystal clear. I enjoyed the illustrations and some of the concepts involved but if the Scare School is going work in graphic novel form, the storylines have got to be WAY clearer than this.
