$19.99

Published: First Second - July 17th, 2018

This is not your Mother's D&D game! Humor, bad puns, crazy situations, spells, fourth wall breaking and more! Based on the McElroy's podcast, the reader enters a world of a role playing game where things are not always what they seem, but are always interesting. You do not need to be a fan of the game, just a good time (ages 14 up some mature content/langue) ~ Reviewed by Jeanette


Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery": The Authorized Graphic Adaptation by Miles Hyman - Book Review

Staff Pick Badge
Shirley Jackson's
$16.00
ISBN: 9780809066506
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Hill and Wang - October 25th, 2016

Created by Jackson’s grandson, Miles Hyman, you see the action of her original text. Full color pieces of art show you what is any town USA. The suspense of the buildup to the drawing of the lottery is seen on the faces of the characters. They capture their glee, fear, boredom, and, later, even their tuning out their humanity. The limited text captures the feeling of Jackson’s story while the illustrations capture the time and place while adding to the meaning of Jackson’s message. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Published: Top Shelf Productions - July 16th, 2019

Takei tells his story in graphic novel format. The years from early/mid-1940s to today, show Takei a child of the Japanese-American internment camps (or as he calls them, incarceration camps) to present day adult who still fights for equality. History and the present blend together realistically (but not in a graphic manner). Take your time to read the illustrations, as they give elements words cannot. Can be for strong pre-teens, but ages 14 to adult are the audience. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Published: Cartoon Books - August 2018

This is a beautiful, dark, mixed-up series. It is science-fiction mixed with realism and made into one mad trip down the rabbit hole. Rasl’s adventures of trying to protect himself from those who would stop him, survive “Drifting” (jumping into parallel worlds) and most importantly, protecting loved ones makes him the quintessential anti-hero. Mature images and themes. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

The creator of One-Punch man, One, delivers yet another laugh-out-loud comedy. Yet this one (no pun) has his own artwork. And it deals with a young kid striving to become stronger without the assistance of his tremendous psychic powers. With each inch of progress, Mob shows us and those surrounding him what true strength is. ~ Reviewed by Firdous Madany

A laugh-out-loud manga comedy that pokes fun of any superhero story, origin situation, battle anything, while remaining utterly serious. Staring bored, overpowered, self named hero Saitama. You might want some privacy for this one, you will end up braying like a donkey. ~ Reviewed by Firdous Madany
