Item description for Hollow Fields Vol 2 (Hollow Fields) by Madeleine Rosca...
Located on the outskirts of Nullsville and run by the insidious Engineers, Miss Weaver's Academy for the Scientifically Gifted and Ethically Unfettered --- also known as Hollow Fields--- dedicates itself to raising the next generation of mad scientists and evil geniuses! Classes include Live Taxidermy, Cross-Species Body Part Trans-plantation, and Killer Robot Construction. For their own survival, students must master their lessons quickly...the student with the lowest grades at the end of each week is sent to the old windmill for detention---and so far, no child has ever returned.
Once thought to be a shoo-in for detention, recent transfer student Lucy Snow has come into her own at Hollow Fields thanks to Doctor Bleak---a mysterious box-like artifact that Lucy found in the library. Now with Doctor Bleak on her side, can the duo uncover the mysteries of the windmill and reveal the scope of Miss Weaver's evil plans before its too late?

Reviews - What do customers think about Hollow Fields Vol 2 (Hollow Fields)?
Better than volume 1 [which, by the way, was awesome] Jul 22, 2008
Volume 2 made Hollow Fields one of my currently running most favorite series. Volume 1 was cute and well done, but volume 2 starts getting rather dark as questions of immortality and other such deep subjects are posed.
Very marvelous. In my opinion, Hollow Fields fits right in on any manga shelf, even a shelf biased against OEL.
Delve deeper into Hollow Fields May 28, 2008
This continuation of the first manga takes place two months later. We learn more about each character and how they are developing. It moves at a nice pace and raises the stakes considerably with even more charm than the first.
Although Lucy is working hard at her studies, she still ignored by her classmates and she is lonely. Some projects are going her way, but some still blow up in her face. Will she be able to stay out of the windmill after tough midterm exams?
There are also flashbacks to the beginning of Hollow Fields and we get to see some of the engineers before they became stitched up and steam driven. Many more secrets of the school are revealed, some held by teachers and some held by students.
Oveall, I loved both the art and the story and I can't wait for the next installment!
