If this book had been around when we were kids my brothers and I would have been obsessed. Beautiful art, fascinating world design, and great emotional storytelling.

I absolutely loved this little graphic novel! Hilda is very adventuresome and likes to draw and find monsters. She spots sea spirits, trolls, etc. I love the wood man and his weird ways. Awesome graphics and I'm looking to read the rest in the series!

Mostly art but some of the stories are very thought provoking.

Mermaid friends, Pearl, Tooth, and Eez, are big fans of the booze they found in a shipwreck but when they run out, they decide find more on the surface. Eez casts a spell, turning them human, but none of them thought past their first drinks. Thankfully, they find a friend who helps them navigate the human world.
Wonderful queer rep and body-positive art.

All-Star Superman | Grant Morrison, Frank Quitely

That was...A LOT, but I wanted more. I can see real potential in a storyline where Superman actually has to confront mortality. I also like the idea of exploring the near/far future with the Superman cast of characters. I'll admit I'm not as 'up' on his lore as I might claim to be aware of Batman's so that might hamper my appreciation of some of the storylines included here - particularly my lack of interest in anything Bizarro. 1/?

Robotswithpersonality 2/? I just didn't feel good about the fact that after the reveal Lois wouldn't accept that Clark and Superman were the same person, even if, yeah, they needed to have a long conversation about how much he'd lied to her in canon! Similarly the whole idea that his closest friends at the newspaper would not see it at the last. Such a lonely notion that he wouldn't be seen for who he was as a whole even when possibly(?) dying. 4d
Robotswithpersonality 3/? It's probably a side effect of just having read the powerfully infuriating but emotionally complex Luthor as characterized in Superman Birthright, but this Luthor felt like a court jester of bad decisions and obliviousness in comparison. Not that that can't be a whole villain vibe, it just seems a little paltry in comparison. 4d
Robotswithpersonality 4/? I don't know that the story needed the addition of a set of Herculean tasks to further underline Superman's value to the world, I would have been happier to see a more emotionally resonant, intimate picture of his possible(?) final days. The search for a cure or replacements was enough clutter without also introducing new challenges. 4d
Robotswithpersonality 5/5 And I know I'm a broken record at this point, but the art? Maybe it's just the circumstances: aging, illness, distress featuring so highly, but I again found myself unsettled by a lot of the faces and bodies. Could be on purpose! 🤷🏼‍♂️ 4d

I binged TAZ this past winter. I love that I can relive the series in graphic novels! The illustrations are cute and colorful and NOT traditional DnD (if that‘s your bag, cool no hate) just like TAZ.

BookmarkTavern I love this series! 💖 4d
