did not like it
bookshelves: flights-of-debauchery, meh-at-you, disheartening
Read from May 03 to 04, 2011

You’ve done us a great disservice, Ms. Gabaldon.

What? Did you think we would enjoy a graphic novel version of Outlander from Jamie’s point of view? Really? We are not Twilight fans, Diana (okay, some of us are, but for exasperated outrage sake, let’s not quibble.) We are a different breed.

We’ve forsaken our literary street cred, we’ve risked justified divorce proceedings, we’ve let precious family moments pass us by. We’ve poured through 6,850 pages, 7,458 if you count the Outlandish Companion!!!

We’ve stood in line at a bookstore and have openly purchased your books. We are COMMITTED (some more so than others.) And, this is what you’ve given us? Oh, how little you think of us.

First of all, THAT IS NOT WHAT JAMIE LOOKS LIKE. I know, I know, you’ve heard this all before…. But this is your fault. You’ve set us on this path and then give us this…

Uh uh… no way.

I read about how you used to write comics for Disney and how it was near and dear and all that crap. Still, you don’t toy with us with Jamie and Claire. Wow. This is how you see Claire? Seriously?

Please give us more credit than this. Please just work on the next book and let us know what happens with Roger and Gem and wee Ian and William and Fergus and of course, our favorite super couple, Clamie….or is it Jaire?

Kim Now you can just imagine Claire's generous busom rolling with the waves.....

Ava Brightly ☕ Thank you for saying it. I love the series but felt this was just a big "no".

Jamie was all wrong, I agree. Claire's boobage was slowly approaching Jessica Rabbit by the end and the bottom picture, in your review, middle, left side w/Claire by herself? She looks like the Speed Racer guy. Just no.

Ava Brightly ☕ Im laughing at my comment from 3 yrs ago.

Sam Heughan, the actor for Jamie in Starz Outlander series, commented in an interview that Jessica Rabbit was his first crush, "I know she's animation, but, oh my god."

hahaha, maybe he wouldnt mind the artwork so much.
