I love scouring the graphic novel section at the public library. It often leads me to titles and issues I never knew existed. And I get to read to great comics for free. What is better than that?
Here are the latest graphic novels that I have read.
Ant-Man – Second Chance Man
I didn’t know a lot about this character prior to seeing the movie last year. The film was incredible and I really enjoyed it. This comic pretty much picks up right from there. If you saw the movie and liked it, I would recommend checking this one out.
Star Wars – Skywalker Strikes
This is my Star Wars. The comics are getting the characters, the universe, and the story right. Not like the latest film version, which was horrible, in my humble opinion.
I am enjoying how the writers of the on-going Star Wars series have filled in the gaps between the original film trilogy. This is the second title I have read in this series and I look forward to reading more.
Mr. Wonderful – A Love Story
I picked this up from the shelf and the story captured me right from the first page.
An older man is waiting in a coffee shop for his blind date. She’s late and his mind wanders. You can see his thought process throughout the story and how, at times, it takes him away from what is actually happening in front of him.
My girlfriend was with me when I picked this one up from the library. She read it before I did and also got into the quirky storytelling. When she got to the end though, she exclaimed something along the lines of “What? It ends there?” I guess she wanted more. I actually think it ended poetically.
Let me know what you think if you have read any of these titles.
