Everything Is Beautiful, and I’m Not Afraid: A Baopu Collection by Yao Xiao

This is an intense and personal collection of comic strips. There is nothing remotely 'HaHa funny' about them. Most of the ones I follow on social media do have personal incidents influencing their collections, but this one was of a slightly different ilk. I had seen one or two in passing forwards somewhere, that was… Continue reading Everything Is Beautiful, and I’m Not Afraid: A Baopu Collection by Yao Xiao

The Detection Club 1 & 2 by Jean Harambat

I saw these books a long time ago. I downloaded them after seeing this Review by Kate, and even after I had it on my laptop, I did not start reading it till I saw Rekha had gotten around to reading her copy and liking it.

It is not often that I get a chance to read a translated work which is both a graphic novel as well as a light, breezy read while also clicking with me. This, as I am trying to say, was all three(translated from French). The story is very simple and straightforward, our leading lady Rose… Continue reading Days of Sugar and Spice by Loïc Clément / Art by Anne Montel

Krazy Kat Collection: Selected Sunday Strips 1918–1919 by George Herriman

This is up for request on NetGalley till the 11th of February 2020 When I first started reading this, I did not get it. Only when I came back to it, I realised what I was doing wrong. I was treating it like a more modern comic strip which makes sense, is funny and profound… Continue reading Krazy Kat Collection: Selected Sunday Strips 1918–1919 by George Herriman
