Die Vol. 4: Bleed | Kieron Gillen

I‘m back with Casey for one night only! He napped like a champ while I finished DIE. It hit me hard, y‘all. I cried, and I nodded, and I‘m gonna spend a good, long while thinking about how often Kieron Gillen‘s projects deal with personal image construction and how that plays out here in his collaboration with Stephanie Hans. #gaymay

Just a quick read. I haven't been in the greatest reading mood lately. So I thought a graphic novel would help. I rated this book a 3 out of 5 stars.

Another great installment in the series. Things are getting serious for Nick and Charlie as Nick starts to think about university and how that will affect their relationship. I remember very well the pressure to know exactly what you want to do with your life at that age, and it's probably worse now. I love the text conversations and the glimpses of side characters' storylines.

Incredibly powerful account of the genocide of European Jews during WW2. Harrowing, human. The mix of the depiction of the story in its historical place interwoven with the telling of the history by father to son made it exceptional. The graphic novel form worked so well. I would recommend to all. Sits alongside Joe Sacco in my shelf. Does anyone know other great history works in graphic novel form? Would love to find more.

I love Heart and Brain. So relatable and even the panels that are sad are beautiful. Onward.

Book 13 of 2024! I love, love, love this YA series focusing on a relationship between high schoolers Nick and Charlie. It‘s a series about young people both grappling with and celebrating their sexualities. And it‘s really sweet and sometimes very profound. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I feel like this book would have been better served if it tried to be a little less? There is a galactic empire and a rebellion. There are also inhabitants of a world caught in the crossfire, an AI that defected from the empire, and a commune of people trying to avoid the conflict. The threat of the empire is underdeveloped, the locals are a plot device, the AI is exposition-dumped at the end, and the rebels are all over the place. ⤵️

TieDyeDude The cover and the hype would lead you to believe that it is a queer love story, but it is not. It is a straight sci-fi story. There is talk about binders and a character with she/her pronouns has a beard, but this is a story with non-binary characters, not about non-binary characters. Which is great, and should be the norm, but the marketing felt misleading. 1d
LiteraryinLawrence That‘s really interesting… the cover definitely made me think it was a queer love story! 1d
Mimi28 I have this book out from the library right now but I haven‘t read it yet. 23h
TieDyeDude @Mimi28 I'll be curious to see what you think of it! 23h
Mimi28 Ok, I‘ll read it next. I was trying to read Station Eleven for the author a month but I just learned about a lot of triggers. I agree that non- binary books should be the norm. 23h

I love K. O'Neill's art, but the story wasn't 100% there for me with this book. Lots of wordless panels that didn't convey to me what was going on, and I never fully connected with the main character's emotional struggle. Maybe the author gave me too much credit to be able to interpret her intentions, but a lot of the story felt vague or implied, and the art sometimes lacks detail, like she was used to drawing large and had to go small here...

I really wanted to like Joe Hill‘s novels, but they are not very good. His comics, on the other hand, are fantastic! That he has started his own brand of comics is very encouraging. That he kicks off his venture with this firecracker of a story is further proof his true talents lie in this narrative format. Gory, fun, imaginative and daring. I absolutely cannot wait to see what else comes out of this endeavor. Highly recommended!

RamsFan1963 Plunge is really good, especially if you like Lovecraftian horror. 1d
WeAreLegion Thanks for the recommendation! 24h
