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.

How to Talk to Girls At Parties - The Graphic Novel

How to Talk to Girls at Parties - Fábio Moon, Gabriel Bá, Neil Gaiman

I listened to this in an audio collection of Gaiman's stories once and found this graphic novel representation on par to that listening experience.  I don't mean to toot my own horn...but I think I've got a pretty ok imagination, and Gabriel Bà's illustrations of the girls, the party and the experience were all vivid representations perfectly matching the feeling I got from listening to the story.  The huge slightly unfocused (or focused on things far beyond my reckoning) eyes of the partying girls, even the various rooms or stages of the house and beyond are beautiful, alien and slightly scary.

 

Nice short graphic novel with beautiful colors and details that will absorb readers for days.
