I'm Reading Comeeks

I dedicate this blog to comics in all forms, manga, autobio, superhero, art books, etc.  And of course, since I need a challenge, I've decided that I'll read and write (short) reviews for 365 comics during 2015.

Never Say Goodnight

Aldrig godnatt - Coco Moodysson

If you've seen the film, "We Are the Best," this graphic novel, Never Goodnight, is the inspiration for that movie.

 

It follows three friends as they discover punk music and decide to form a band together.  They cut and dye their hair, they bang on pots and pans, deal with idiots at school and have drama with their families and boys and drinking.

 

I loved the artwork and the eye-rolls and personality given to each character.

 

Having now read both the graphic novel inspiration and the film, I have to say, I loved both.  I love the drama created by the film, but I also loved the more realistic nature of the graphic novel, which though still containing dramatic moments, felt more subdued and real to life than the movie.

 

I would recommend checking this graphic novel out, then taking a look at the movie too!

 

For those who've enjoyed: (I highly recommend Skim, too).
