Book Review: Graphic Novel Kick Ass Girl Trio

Being a short month, Book Club decided to read a short book - or rather a graphic novel. We tried to find a few kick-as girl stories, and voted on Snapshot of a Girl. I decided to read all three we voted on though, but as usual, found that graphic novels aren't really my medium.

Snapshots of a Girl
By Belden Sezen
176 pages

This autobiographical collection follows the author as she accepts and comes out as a lesbian. I got the simple, but not deeper message, and was a fan of only half the artwork (the cartoon styled ones, not the more realistic figures). So, just meh.

Lumberjanes, Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy
By Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Shannon Watters, Brooke A. Allen
128 pages

I've been meaning to read this for awhile: who wouldn't love strong female characters hanging out at camp?! Well me apparently. It was just a bit too weird. Probably I'm just getting old.

By Noelle Stevenson
272 pages

Evil nemesis fighting noble knight and corrupt institution mixed with quirky shapeshifting sidekick equals fun times, right? I didn't much like this one to start but it grew on me. The ending wasn't disappointing, and even though I only half liked the art, I did like the humour. A worthy quick read.
