Comics & Graphic Novel

I Will Not Die Alone by Dera White,Joe Bennett


Its books like these that pad my number of total reads in a year. Not something I do on purpose, but a process I enjoy nevertheless.
Any time I see a graphic novel with a retrospective theme and cutesy illustrations, I usually pick it up (given a chance).
This is a very short volume that I did not expect the ending of. Each page shows a few panels of animals who are making vows to themselves. These are ones they intend to keep, as later panels will show. Some are strong and deep, while others are light and deep. Some made me chuckle, and a few had me thinking. This is a book that one can pass around a book club to help people open up about where they see themselves in the collection.
I would have liked more time with the characters, although the backstory and the background are quite clear from the panels themselves.
Since the entire book is not that long, I cannot justify a longer review than this. The final panel was probably the best! It made me chuckle as I looked at it again while writing the review.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
