from panel to panel

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

In May, you get graphic novels about the two Hawkeyes teaming up, the possible end of She-Hulk, Japanese anime Persephone, killer girls, and many more. This month, you need to put these on your TBR list.

All Vera wants to do is fit in—but that’s not easy for a Russian girl in the suburbs. Her friends live in fancy houses and their parents can afford to send them to the best summer camps. Vera’s single mother can’t afford that sort of luxury, but there’s one summer camp in her price range—Russian summer camp.

Vera is sure she’s found the one place she can fit in, but camp is far from what she imagined. And nothing could prepare her for all the “cool girl” drama, endless Russian history lessons, and outhouses straight out of nightmares!

First sentence: “The Prince is holding a ball!!”

If you want to make friends, you gotta be willing to sacrifice yourself and prepare yourself. We’ve been that kid who had trouble making friends because they were different—racially, culturally, financially. We just wanted to fit in—no matter what needed to be done.

In Be Prepared, all Vera wants to do is fit in. She doesn’t want to be the weird Russian girl who can’t afford luxuries that the other girls at her school can afford. When she finds out there’s a Russian summer camp, Vera jumps on the chance to finally make friends with people who are like her. However, camp is not all that it’s cracked up to be.

Paris, at the dawn of the modern age:

Prince Sebastian is looking for a bride―or rather, his parents are looking for one for him. Sebastian is too busy hiding his secret life from everyone. At night he puts on daring dresses and takes Paris by storm as the fabulous Lady Crystallia―the hottest fashion icon in the world capital of fashion!

Sebastian’s secret weapon (and best friend) is the brilliant dressmaker Frances―one of only two people who know the truth: sometimes this boy wears dresses. But Frances dreams of greatness, and being someone’s secret weapon means being a secret. Forever. How long can Frances defer her dreams to protect a friend?

First sentence: “The Prince is holding a ball!!”

In this fairytale for the modern age, there lived a prince who loves to wear dresses and a talented dressmaker who dreams of doing more with her work. These two come together to take on the world of fashion! But unfortunately in secret (boys dressing up in dresses is unacceptable to people). Both yearn for more—acceptance, openness, to be who they are without it being a secret.
