As a Phantom of the Opera fan myself, and because I have heard good things about this comic online, I decided to. .

It only arrived today, but I absolutely love it! The comic is wonderful, very detailed and artistic, I like the fact that all the pictures are in black and white, this adds a special depth for the horror story. Using the increasingly popular medium of the graphic novel, Bregman recounts Erik's time as the architect of the Persian Shah's macabre palace, complete with secret passages and torture chambers. He also gives us a look at his relationship with the Sultana, although in a different light than given by Leroux.

There are two authors who have created "pasts" for the Phantom. One is Susan Kay, who wrote Phantom, a book I just loved. The other is Peter Bregman, who wrote a graphic novel called The Trap-Door Maker: A Prequel to the Phantom of the Opera. I have not read this one, but it looks interesting. Your library might have copies of either or both, and if they do not, many libraries have a system that allows.

Again, Mr Bergman has produced a pleasing book. His drawings are bold and detailed. Yes, he does stay closer to LeRoux than to Kay, which is probably what the writer intended. It's always fascinating to see what other writers can develop when they're presented with the same challenge, in this case, exploring and giving more depth to a character's earlier history. I have no complaints about either.

Apparently, in my first review, people got the impression I was looking for a Phantom a/la Gerry Butler. While GB was easy on the eyes in the 2004 movie (not to mention he handled the singing well!), the skinny, weak appearance of Erik still bothers me. Like I said before, yes, Erik was WRITTEN as thin, but he was also commanding in his bearing. That's why the image of a "98 pound weakling" Erik, even if this is from his younger days, bothers me. The size of the materials he was working with in this storyline to create the trap doors and tunnels would not turn him into Swartzenegger by any stretch of the imagination! Yet, I have no doubt that while Erik looked like a living corpse, his body would NOT have been bone thin.

But, that is my only complaint, and that's a small complaint. Overall, if number three is as well done as the first two, it will be quite a joy. It's just too bad that we have to wait so long between installments.

It's as unbearable as needing a coffee fix and all the coffee shops are closed!

And did I tell you I'm a coffee fiend?

are not my cup of tea. However, this one is particularly well-done. The pen-and-ink sketches are outstanding, and the artist makes a good case for his concepts of Erik's life before the Opera House. I am eagerly awaiting book 3, as I have books 1 and 2 already.

Being a recent lover of any fiction involving the Phantom of the Opera, the idea of a graphic novel that explored more of Erik's past in the Middle East was intriguing. I collect a lot of graphic/comic novels, and when I saw this first volume being offered, decided to give it a try.

Though this book is in black and white format, it made for pleasureable reading. The drawings were good, the writing and dialouge held my interest, and I was not disappointed in the purchase. In fact, I am eagerly awaiting the next installment, which is supposed to be due out anytime!

This first volume started right off with action and intrigue, plus the surprise of the trick that Erik's alter ego performed. I was intrigued with the idea that a man would wear a veil about his face, as Eastern men usually leave their faces uncovered. Yet, the veil over the face worked better for Erik than the mask we know him to wear.

The only critique I have is the decision to draw Erik as a skinny person. Considering that Erik was a master architect, and in some background stories (such as Susan Kay's PHANTOM), Erik was also a bricklayer. Men who work at such physically demanding jobs usually are not weak and skinny in appearance. (This is the same displeasure I have when Christ is portrayed as a skinny 98 pound weakling. A carpenter has to be strong and well able to handle wood of all shapes, sizes, and weight, but I digress). However, that is the only fly in an otherwise pleasing ointment.

Anyone who is a phan of Erik, and wants to collect literature about him, will find this graphic novel a good buy, a good read, and a good addition to their collection. If the next edition is as good as the first, the writer has a true winner!

I can say if you loved the other books of the trap-door maker then you will love this. I think that Pete Bregman really out did himself with this one. Again i love the art and the story telling. You could almost believe that this is how phantom came to the opera house.

I did feel that it was a little rushed a little bit, but overall it is still good and the best Prequel I have seen to the Phantom of the Opera. The only thing I dislike about the phantom is how skinny he is drawn , but from that I like it. Its good to have if you own the other two or like the other ones.

I would love to see a animated movie done out of his books by him or see his telling of the Phantom of the opera. I was so sad to see it end. I felt that he could have kept going with that but then that has been done already.

I give it a 5 stars

Brilliant and beautiful, fans of comics and/or the phantom should go ahead and buy this. The story is interesting, the characters are great, and the book leaves you excited for the sequel. I don't want to give anything away about the story so far; it is just too much fun for me to spoil it. All I can say is that if you are thinking of buying it, you will not regret it.

This has to be one of the best prequels yet. I love how it goes into detail, covering a good number of things that left readers curious after Leroux's book.

Side note concerning the review of "Myra E. Lowe "Myra Emily Lowe""

Any Phantom lover knows that Erik was not a thick person. He was a living corpse. And no matter how much one works, or works out, if a person's body isn't made for it, then they won't become built.

Personally, I'm GLAD he was drawn skinny! No Gerik for this particular story.

A great continuation of Bergman's first volume. We get to see how Erik came up with the idea for the Torture Chamber, we see Erik's relationship with the Persian evolve. Bergman keep much closer to Leroux that Kay in more ways that one, but I'm sure more Kay oriented readers will enjoy it too. For none-Phantom fans this is till a great read with wonderful art.
This a must have for Leroux phans or,any phan for that matter! Pete Bregman's work has blown me away! I absolutely LOVE The Trap-Door maker A Prequel To The Phantom Of The Opera!!!!!!
