August 2017 — A Wrap-Up for the Month of Graphic Novels & Comics

wp

The previous month was all about graphic novels and comics. Here is what I read in August and what I thought about it:

 

Monster of Frankenstein Vol. 1

1

As part of Project Frankenstein, this volume failed to make an impression. I was sad to see that all the stories missed the most essential characteristic present in the monster from the original work: its intelligence. This monster came off as a creature on a rampage. Even where it was shown to be clever, it was in an evil sort of a way.

Anyway, another book that I can cross off my list!

 

 

Kamala has my heart and is keeping it as far as I can see. The humor is amazing, I mean references to Dune, Spiderman’s wisecracks, and keeping things real— the comic has it all!

I enjoyed the heck outta this book and have reviewed it in detail here.

Gotham Academy: Endgame #1 &

Annual #1

These were cute and nerdy but I am still not too crazy about them.

Preacher, Volumes 1, 2, & 3

Irreverrent as heck but funny and kick-you-in-the-gut sad too. If you can get past the first issue or two, then you are going to love it. If you are easily offended, this might not be the thing for you!

I have already reviewed this one in detail and on Instagram; it was part of my Books&Chai series. Read my expression of Dino-Mania here.
