I read Speak as a high school freshman. It’s a painful and powerful story, that has stuck with me for over ten years. Anderson is amazing, and while Speak can be difficult to read, it’s necessary. When I saw the graphic novel on the shelf at Barnes and Noble, I knew that it had to come home with me.
Hello again, readers! I was pretty dang busy reading this month, and made sure that I got plenty of reading done! Let’s jump right into what I read this past month!
Last year, Manfried the Man came out. It was about a cat whose man got loose, and he did an entire campaign to find him. In this alternate world where cats and humans have switched, it was a really fun read. Now, on May 14, you can see what Manfried is up to again!
This graphic novel has been getting a lot of attention lately, so I’ve finally read it! I bought it a month or so ago, and I’m glad that I finally sat down to read it. It only took me about 30 minutes, so it wasn’t a long read, but it was impactful.
I’ve been following Kevin Panetta and Paulina Ganucheau around the Internet for a couple years now, so when I learn that Panetta (along with Ganucheau’s sister) was working on a graphic novel, the hype was real. Bloom finally came out, and I’m so glad to have read it!
I received this graphic novel as a review copy from Quirk books, and I didn’t know much about it. I knew it was an adaptation of a Salvador Dalí screenplay, starring the Marx brothers, but I had no idea what it really was, or the work that went into it.
I grabbed this graphic novel while buying too many books in Barnes & Nobel the other day, and I’m quite glad that I did. Hex Vet is Davies’ first graphic novel, and they did a phenomenal job at it!
