This was a really fun graphic novel and I‘ll probably read more of them; I liked the artwork and concepts, and it was funny!! Why haven‘t I read it before?
There were all sorts of monsters (including both zombies and vampires plus ghosts). And it‘s set in the PNW. Bonus points from me for that.
Read this graphic novel story collection last night with the dim glow of amber fairy lights, the candle, and just my booklight. Some great stories, but I think my favorite was “His Face All Red”. Quick and spooky pick for Halloween.
This graphic novel tells the story of Little Bao, a young man who takes part in the Boxer Rebellion. He wants to fight for China, oust the foreigners who are taking control of religion and the government, protect his family, but will he be able to live with the choices he makes? Great characters. Action packed. But probably not for middle grade kids since there is a lot of violence..
Loved this graphic novel! I thought the play on Frankenstein‘s Monster was very clever. How do we define the monstrous? How have Black bodies been defined as monstrous and what has the impact of that social delusion been? The book presents those heavy ideas, but it‘s also just a good story!
