This graphic novel mostly focuses on the characters and relationship of Griffen & Molly, two married women. These characters are fascinating in their own right. However, they interact with various others enough to keep things stirred up (Griffen in particular tends to cause problems for herself). And the future setting is amazing. No aliens, so far, but humanity comes in various flavors: clone families, space adapted, etc. This story is #1 in a series; the story continues online - it is my f ...more

Dicebox is a criminally underrated webcomic I've never rated here in spite of having followed it for years, probably because it used not to be an actual book as well.
It's one of these wacky comics with a meandering, twisty plots so I'm not going to spoil it here. But expect general weirdness, relationship stuff... and above all surprises. The tone is nevertheless naturalistic.

I shouldn't like Dicebox because it's got one of those SF settings with magitech and preposterous economics (which featur

How do I review this book? I've been a fan of the webcomic for years. The book is (somewhat to my surprise) even better than the webcomic; it's beautifully designed, the pages are big and colorful, and it's got all this great extra stuff. There's a glossary in the back! Plus, all the "asides" (by other artists), most of which I hadn't read.

I'll try to describe the story a bit. The main characters are Molly and Griffen, a pair of interplanetary itinerant factory workers. The sci-fi elements are a

I won a copy of Dicebox quite a while ago, but I simply could not get into it. Since i'm pressed for time, i'm going to write this review in a quick bullet list:

Pros:
- The artwork is absolutely stunning.
- The attention to detail is fantastic! I just love how one of the protagonists changes her hair within every scene.
- I did enjoy the sci-fi elements.

Cons:
- I can't believe i'm saying this, but there was far too much talking and not enough action. This was one of the main reasons why it took

Despite some early issues with pacing and artwork that displays characters and scenes far better than motion, Dicebox manages to engage and ensnare. The meandering, sit-and-talk nature of the work helps alleviate the latter, while the former appears less as Lee settles into her work. What originally seems like an intentionally stingy approach to character background becomes pleasantly integral, with the reader learning that they know as little about the main characters as they do about each othe ...more

It was a good way through this before I had a feel for what was actually going on, but I'm definitely glad I stuck with it. Like any good novel, the things I didn't understand were (with allowances for the fact the this is book one of four) explained through the course of the story, making this not just a good read overall, but one that would definitely stand up to re-reading, as I expect that I'll find and appreciate things every time through that I didn't even see the first time. It wasn't eas ...more

Frst of all, I got this book as part of Goodreads' ARC giveaway.

This book is a 'dead-tree' bversion of the Dicebox webcomic. The title of this first installment is 'Wander', and I was surprised at how accurate the title is. The story just meanders along, not seeming to be in any hurry to get anywhere- BUT! Don't take this comment as a criticism! Somehow, the casual pace works well, giving us plenty of time to get to know the protagonists without bombarding us with facts and figures.
Sure, it's

Took me a little while to get into this web comic collection, but once I did, it found it fascinating. I'll be catching up online and ordering the next collection when it becomes available,
