Did you track down the movie after finishing the book (or had you seen the film before reading the book)? If so, what did you think about the adaptation? Major differences? Any quibbles?
#litsygetsgraphic

sebrittainclark I didn't actually realize there was a movie. I guess I'll have to check it out! 13mo
LibrarianRyan I was going to do the movie tonight. It‘s on Hoopla as well. I‘m really looking forward to it b 13mo
Eyelit @sebrittain @LibrarianRyan I‘d love to hear what you think after you see it! I saw it last week and liked it 😄 13mo

Welcome to the discussion for I Kill Giants 😃

A few questions to kick things off:

Did you have any preconceived notions about the story going in? What were they? Were your expectations met?

#litsygetsgraphic

sebrittainclark Just from the cover, I really thought it was going to be a fantasy comic, so I was surprised when it wasn't all set in a fantasy world. 13mo
LibrarianRyan @sebrittain I agree I was expecting a fantasy especially since it was made into a movie. 13mo
LibrarianRyan Plus the copy I was reading had the bunny ears and I really thought it would be similar to 13mo
Eyelit @sebrittain @LibrarianRyan like you I thought it would be more fantastical in scope... I liked what it was, but it wasn‘t anything like I expected 13mo
cobwebmoth I didn't know what to expect, but I too was surprised by the lack of fantasy. 13mo

#graphicnovelsnews is back ❤️
The final volume of I Hate Fairyland is out of print and available on #Hoopla. What started as a normal, everyday, child-sucked-into-a-magical-land-to-fulfill-an-inane-quest has changed Fairyland forever. In the continuation of saccharine fantasy-satire, Gertrude hands over the spotlight to Larry, Duncan Dragon, and some of Fairyland's other supporting cast, misfits, and forgotten threats.

LibrarianRyan I thought this group only read non-fiction graphic novels? Just curious if the rules or parameters changed of if I just didn‘t realize this was based on a true story. 14mo
LitsyGetsGraphic @LibrarianRyan you are right it is not nonfiction or a true story. We decided include discussable comic books here to see how much involvement can it bring. 14mo

At the end of Book I, Art calls his father a "murderer" for destroying his mother's diaries after her suicide. What deos he mean by that? Why is it so important for Art to find out about Auschwitz and why does his father take a different approach?

When they are returning from the Catskills near the end of the story, Art gets very mad when his father takes a racist attitude toward an African American hitchkiker. How does this incident illustrate the different meaning the Holocaust holds for Art and for his father?

LukkiAnn I was kind of shocking. It seems that holocaust was only a personal experience for Vladek his did not think about it in global prospective 1y

Maus 2 | Art Spiegelman
post image

The Complete Maus is not a huge book and even with black and wight color it took 13 years to complete it. Why do you think it took so long? Why with all success does Art have a writing block to start the second part?

Eyelit I think not only the initial gathering of info took so long, but this is an intensely personal book and there‘s probably a lot of internal pressure to get it just right. So after the time it took to do the first book and all the success that came with it, it‘s totally understandable he might be a little blocked for the follow up because of the added pressure to measure up to the first book 1y

Why do you think Spiegelman draws the characters of his book as animals? Do you think this, and the cartoon format in general, is an effective way of dealing with the subject matter?

I found this sketch of Art‘s dream in Meta Maus book. It seems that the difficulty of Vladek‘s character still chases him even after The Complete Maus was published. Did their relationship progress during the interviews? What kind of relationship it was? Did Art‘s feelings change?

LukkiAnn I think he started to understand more his father, but still there are lot of distance between them. 1y
Eyelit I agree @LukkiAnn about the distance. I think that relationship is always one that will be strained, for a variety of reasons (also thanks for the heads up on meta Maus - I need to see if my library has it!) 1y

Vladek and Anja had special relationship from the beginning. What particular story touched you the most? Why Vladek could not safe her from the suicide? What do you think really happened to Anja in the end of her life?

LukkiAnn I was so touched by this photo. My favorite was then Vladek was trying to find anything for Anja on his way back. He even managed to find a fur coat for her but it was stolen. I was trying to find out that actual happen to her, it seems that she was not able to ask for help when she actually need it. She was still a prisoner of war like Vladek 😢😢😢 1y

Why does Vladek ask Art not to write about Lucia in his book? Why doesn‘t Art listen to his father? Do you think it is right for Art to break his promise?

sebrittainclark I think Vladek was trying to keep some parts of his life private and by including it Art shows the reader that he's including everything, good and bad. It creates a sense of trust that Art is telling the reader everything, even if it goes against Vladek's wishes. 1y
LukkiAnn I was very confused by this page. He did not cover many his father‘s flaws showing him like no hero. But this one was kind of personal. Probably because his father felt guilt about Lucia 🤔 1y
LukkiAnn And it is a kind of sorry for her 1y

Rise and shine Littens ☀️ it‘s Aug. 8 time for our discussion about Maus.I would not ask you our first traditional question “did you like it or not” this time, because even if you don‘t like it,you still feel a good amount of sympathy to those who went through Holocaust.
Let‘s start with Art and Vladek relationships.Through those 👆🏻 panels which open the book that was your first expression about this family?How did it change through the book?

Caroline2 Their relationship changed my view on holocaust survivors and their families. It had never occurred to me before how it must affect their children to grow up in that shadow. I thought the author portrayed the complexities of their relationship with honesty & compassion. I love this book! 💖 1y
LitsyGetsGraphic @Caroline2 great point! I didn‘t think in this prospective either. I think those people always were afraid future and raised their children with fear 1y
sebrittainclark It felt like a really realistic portrayal of family, like Art didn't want to sugar coat things. And I also do think it made it more clear how what holocaust survivors experienced had effects on their families born afterward 1y
KristinaRay I couldn‘t help but notice that the scenes involving Vladek‘s strained relationships with his wife and son were just as hard to witness as the scenes taking place during the war. I think Francoise points it out near the end that even though Vladek survived the holocaust in some ways he didn‘t survive. It‘s sad. 1y
LukkiAnn @KristinaRay I agree. Vladek seems still felling like a war prisoner 1y

The hilarious and harrowing tale of a 19 old virgin who drops out of everything and into the unknown. Abandoning suburbia for art school young Glenn finds himself fending off predators and fighting depression. The unforgettable #graphicnovel of losing one‘s mind, finding one‘s identity, and discovering love where it‘s least expected.

Sace I think it made it possible for me to accept his fixation on death. Otherwise I would keep wondering why he thinks about it so much. 1y
sebrittainclark Like @RestlessFickleBookHoarder I thought it helped explain his focus on death. I saw it as him imagining what his obituary might be at different times at his life. 1y

What did you think of the book's non-linear structure, the misordered repetition of lives?
What do you think we're to make of the dream chapter?
How do you interpret the book's conclusion?
How about its supernatural instances in chapter 2? Which was your favourite chapter?

#litsygetsgraphic

LukkiAnn My favorite was a last chapter. It was logic conclusion of Bras life. Author show us how his character was developed through his life putting chapters in this way. The conclusion was great and the narration through the whole #graphicnovel was fantastic 1y
Eyelit I liked the nonlinear format, though it took me a bit to get used to it. I think I liked best the chapter when he died at 47 - we got to see his family life and how much they loved each other. I also think the conclusion was very fitting. (edited) 1y
Sace I really loved the non-linear format. It seems very natural. I don't ponder moments in my life in a linear fashion. I think my favorite chapter was the one where everyone spent the vacation at the grandparent's ranch. I think those are the kinds of moments I remember most as well. For me there was always this theme of touching the lives around us so even in death we continue on (Is that too cliché?) 1y
cobwebmoth I liked the format. I think I liked the last chapter best. It was very moving. 1y

Most of Bras death are accidents. Why do you think he dyes this way? In this chapter 👆🏻 his death is a mystery. Let‘s speculate. Was he murdered? If so, why?

LukkiAnn I think he was murdered by a boat guy because he set his eyes on a local girl. Or it is a local “sport” sacrifice a foreign for a celebration 1y

Let‘s talk about women characters in this book. We no nothing about Bras sister Clarice, she appears only in two chapters and has one speech bubble. We do not know who is Ana by profession and she is silent in her first appearance. We know that Bras has a half-blood sister but he refuses to acknowledge her. Why does the novel is so muscular? Why are the women characters not developed well?

Eyelit That was my only disappointment with the book, really. Maybe because it‘s written by two brothers and they are writing from an experience of not having many women in their spheres of influence? Idk. I get that it‘s Brás life and from his perspective, but he‘s got these great women in his life supporting him. Only his friend Jorge is kinda fleshed out in the story, and he‘s not even around as much as the women... 1y
Sace I felt like the women were actually quite present. He struggled to get over his first love. He calls and leaves a message just to hear his wife's voice. He is his mother's miracle. I felt like his life very much revolved around women (and the idea they bring life into the world.) 1y
LitsyGetsGraphic @RestlessFickleBookHoarder good point. It feels like despite of women‘s characters are not described very well they played a lot of roles in Bras life 1y

Daytripper is a book created by two Brazilians and is set in Brazil. Did Brás' story feel very foreign to you? And if so, did this magnify the story or detract from it in your experience? If not, what made Daytripper a comfortable story for you?

#litsygetsgraphic

LukkiAnn This story really reminds me Life After Life by Kate by Kate Atkinson which set in Britain. So there is no foreign in this story, life struggles are universal 1y

sebrittainclark This is such a beautiful book! I really think it's a book about not letting life pass by without really living. 1y
Eyelit I agree with @sebrittain - I think it‘s about living your life and appreciating the small moments as much as the big ones. It‘s also about the people that live that life with you and inform your experiences and personality. 1y

One of the main purposes of this book was to illustrate quantum physics theory in pictures. Did you understand it? Was it easy to understand?

LukkiAnn I did not understand the theory completely. I am a huge fan of metaphysics and it clicks a lot with it. It seems like every possibility can happen even if you just thinking about how electron is working in different directions. 1y

Eyelit What I discovered is that I knew a bit about Feynman‘s personal life prior to reading this. Back in the 90‘s I saw this Patricia Arquette/Matthew Broderick movie and when I read the story about the pencils in this book it struck me as familiar... so I looked up the movie (infinity, I believe) and confirmed that it‘s about Richard and Arline 😃 1y
Eyelit Also - I don‘t understand physics, but I want to so badly 1y
cobwebmoth I didn't know anything about Feynman before reading this. I've never dug deep into this kind of science, but I find it interesting. 1y
