I am not okay with this by charles Forsman

Rating: 2 out of 5.

What drew me to graphic novel was the fact that Netflix turned it into a tv show. I mean, if it is popular enough to become a show had to mean something, right? So here I am hoping to read something with a bit of a dark comedy feel to it, but NOPE. This graphic novel decided that it wanted to focus on this character’s depression, sense of loss, and just steered hard into that sadness. I am all for a writer embracing the darkness, but there was nothing in this novel that made me want to even try this author’s other books. The concept seemed so interesting, but it fell totally flat.

Ghosted in L.A by Sina Grace

4.5 Hoots

Volume #1 was interesting, inclusive, and a lot of fun. I cannot wait to read the next issue.

Graphic novels really are a guilty pleasure of mine and I really enjoy finding new ones to try and get into. I have been reading comics since I was a little kid. Seriously, if I could get a dollar for every time someone told me that “girls don’t read comics” I would probably be rich! Anyway, enough about me lets talk about this beautiful piece of artwork! The story follows Daphne as she moves to LA for college and then has her whole world turned upside down. She originally moved out there to be with her boyfriend but things did not go as planned at all. She fought with best friend, was hated by her roommate, and oh yeah ended up moving into a haunted house!

Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu

4 Hoots!

Mooncakes is a delightful graphic novel that is just so pure and sweet! The main character is a witch that is heard of hearing (they make it a point to show her hearing aids! How cool is that) and the other protagonist is a nonbinary werewolf. Oh and the witch lives with her grandmothers! Which might not seem is not unusual, it is just wonderful that they are in love…no just a grandmother from each side of the family. Talk about representation!

Nova, the witch, ends up reconnecting with her childhood friend when she stumbles upon them fighting this monster/demon thing in the woods. Throughout the novel they touch upon romanace, accepting yourself, and the importance of accepting someone’s proper pronouns! These are all very important themes that would be great for young adult and teen readers. Plus the artwork in the comic was adorable as well. It was not the normal type of comic that I would normally read but overall it was really good!

Once I saw this little snippet I was sold “She’s a 580-year-old vampire who exudes sensuality, Continue reading “Book 26 Review: The Vampire Vacation”
