The Cover: I am liking it. I hope each cover features one of the main women!
The Illustrations: It had the perfect vibe and a great use of colors.
The Story: I couldn't have written a better story about college if I tried. It really did capture the essensce of what it means to be a freshman. I do wish it focused a little more on taking classes and not just the social stuff, although that is a huge part of college. With that ending... I am going to need the next volume ASAP.
Thor Vol. 1 (The Goddess of Thunder) by Jason Aaron (2015)
I love everything about this. EVERYTHING! Read it!
The Cover: Kicks butt.
The Illustrations: Also kicks butt. It may be in black and white, but it works perfectly. I loved all the detail too.
The Story: I thoroughly enjoyed getting to see Aurora learn the trade of her monster fighting father.
Y: The Last Man - The Deluxe Edition Book Two by Brian K. Vaughan (2009)
The Cover: It's not my favorite. It is just so plain to me.
The Illustrations: Just as good as they were the first time around.
The Story: I thought the sequel was just as good as the first volume. I can't wait for more! I really am loving everything about this series.
Lady Killer by Joëlle Jones (2015)
The Cover: I don't even have enough words to describe how amazing and gross this cover is.
The Illustrations: Do you see the cover? Enough said.
The Story: This one blew me away! A 1960's housewife who is also a trained assassin? Heck yes! This one is gory, hilarious, and brilliant.
The Cover: Is awkward, making it perfect.
The Illustrations: They are charming with the perfect amount of detail. The facial expression on these characters are the BEST.
The Story: It is cute and fun (and wonderfully awkward). It reminds me of my awkward younger years in school. I think middle graders are going to love this book! I also enjoyed it since it had me reminiscing.
The Cover: It's adorable and so much fun!
The Illustrations: I was a little disappointed by the lack of color, but other than that the illustrations were cute and fun.
The Story: This graphic novel features a young Bruce Wane, Clark Kent, and Diana Prince. Whats not to love? These kids are funny and full of spirit. If you are a fan of any of these characters, then you will enjoy this book. I had so much fun reading their story!
The Cover: The crazy colors are eye-catching!
The Illustrations: They were good. There was nothing wrong with them, but they didn't really stand out to me like they usually do, which is important in a graphic novel.
The Story: Eh. Like with the illustrations, I liked the story just fine, but I wasn't a huge fan.
Oddly Normal by Otis Frampton (2015)
The illustrations were just average (although the use of color was pretty well done, gave off the paranormal vibe), but the story was pretty darn good. It handles bullying in an interesting (not a bad thing) way. I look forward to seeing where the next installment takes us. I think kids will like this one even more than I did.
The Infinite Loop by Pierrick Colinet (2015)
I am all about time travel, but for whatever reason I was really struggling with this one. I honestly can't even tell you exactly why. I did enjoy reading it, but it wasn't as epic as I was hoping it would be.
