from panel to panel

I love comics and graphic novels, so what do I do with that love? Well, I turn it into a feature!

From Panel to Panel is a new feature where I talk about the awesome (and perhaps not-so awesome) comic books and graphic novels I’ve read. Basically, this will be me pushing them onto your laps. You’re welcome.

All throughout 2016, First Second is celebrating their tenth anniversary! Wheeeee.

For those who do not know what First Second is, it is an imprint under Macmillan that publishes graphic novels that ranges from fiction to visual essays. Have you heard of American Born Chinese by Gene Luen YangAnya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol, and This One Summer by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki? First Second published those!

Want a graphic novel that’s gothic, cute, and charming about the Underworld? Look no further than Princess Decomposia and Count Spatula.

What is it about? Because of her supposedly ailing father (who is actually pretending to be unwell), Princess Decomposia has to cover her father’s royal duties, which has to do with lots of paperwork and discussions with supernatural diplomats/groups to improve relations, and all the work is driving her to exhaustion. She hires a new chef, adorably called Count Spatula, who becomes her confidante, urging her to eat and take a break. With him by her side, things begin to change in the way she does her duties, and that causes unease for her father.

May approaches, and that means a month of awesome graphic novels that will be released! Yeeee.

As some of you may know, I’m a big comic book/graphic novel reader. I spend 1/4 of my time shoving comic books into people’s faces and demanding they read it (take The Wicked + The Divine and Ms. Marvel). And guess what I’m doing this time? Alerting you to all the awesome May graphic novels I’m excited about (and neeeeeeeeeed)!

EXQUISITE CORPSES

exquisite corpseZoe isn’t exactly the intellectual type, which is why she doesn’t recognize world-­famous author Thomas Rocher when she stumbles into his apartment…and into his life. It’s also why she doesn’t know that Rocher is supposed to be dead.

Turns out, Rocher faked his death years ago to escape his critics, and has been making a killing releasing his new work as “lost manuscripts,” in cahoots with his editor/ex-wife Agathe. Neither of them would have invited a crass party girl like Zoe into their literary conspiracy of two, but now that she’s there anyway…well, as it turns out, both Thomas and Agathe think Zoe is awfully cute.

Zoe doesn’t know Balzac from Batman, but she’s going to have to wise up fast… because she’s sitting on the literary scandal of the century! — Goodreads

Publication date: May 5th 2015 by First Second

Pre-order: Amazon · Barnes & Noble · The Book Depository

Why I’m excited: LITERARY SCANDAL! Can you just imagine stumbling across an author who faked his death and become entangled in his and his ex-wife’s web? That’s exactly what Zoe gets herself into! I want to see where this all goes and what Zoe does!
