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.
A couple weeks ago I went to Barnes and Noble to fill up my (already huge) TBR pile, and came home with Manfried the Man. This graphic novel from Quirk Books was the first thing I read, and I fell in love with it immediately.
Friends and Fangirls, I just read the most bodacious of books, Clueless: Senior Year! This graphic novel focuses on our girls Tai, Dionne, and (of course) Cher Horowitz as they go through senior year learning who they are.
I wish I had ordered and read this as soon as I finished book 5 because wow this book has more twists than I anticipated. On the other hand, I’m so glad that I took my time getting to it because I sped through this last night, and I think that this may be the final installment. I’m going to keep this as spoiler-free as possible, but obviously there will be spoilers everywhere. So strap in, Fangirls, it’s a bumpy ride.
Fangirls, this is an incredible book. I know very little about folk music or The Mamas & the Papas, but I like reading comics about real people and their lives. That, and the cover art really drew me to California Dreamin’ the other day.
