A coworker recommended and lent this book to me, because it’s a graphic novel / novel hybrid, and seemed really up my alley. She was incredibly correct, and I want to encourage you to go check it out as well.
I’ve been a big fan of Gudsnuk for 4-5 years now. She made Henchgirl, a fantastic webcomic-turned-graphic novel about a Henchgirl who didn’t like her job. Now, she has released Making Friends through Scholastic’s Graphix publishing house, and I’m so glad I got to read it.
I need to start off by saying that this book wasn’t for me. I picked up the first four graphic novels and barely found any enjoyment in reading them, and that was disappointing. While this wasn’t the book for me, it may be up someone else’s alley.
I picked up this trade while at Free Comic Book Day for a couple reasons; I could use more PPG in my life, I love comics, and my favorite girl Sedusa was on the cover. So I grabbed it, got my free comics, and went on my way. But it took forever for me to finally sit down to read it. Luckily, when I did, I wasn’t disappointed.
I grabbed this graphic novel from my local library just ‘cuz the other day, and I’m so glad I did. First Second has easily become a publishing favorite; they release such incredible titles for all ages. The Time Museum is a middle grade graphic novel, clocking in at about 250 pages. But let’s get into the plot!
Last September, my incredible friend Nicole recommended I listen to the Adventure Zone podcast. I knew nothing of Dungeons and Dragons, nor did I really want to. But two episodes in, and I was swept away.
In my continuing quest to read as many of Neil Gaiman’s works as I can, I finally got through the beginning of The Sandman, a 75 issue comic series that began in the 80’s. It follows Dream of the Endless, a family of personified concepts. Dream, Death, Desire, Destiny, Destruction, Despair, and Delirium. Though Dream, being the Sandman, is the focus, his other siblings do come into play quite often.
