I'm a big fan of graphic memoirs, and a big fan of Shraya, so naturally I was eager for this book's release. Having just finished it though, I feel disappointed. I think it had to do with the artwork.... For some reason the artwork just didn't connect me to the story and I was left feeling less emotional than I expected. I might try reading it again in the future to see how I feel.

The illustrations were really powerful (particularly at the very end), I just found this a little too meta for my liking. I love Vivek Shraya's work, I just had a harder time connecting with this one.

As always, Vivek can be counted on to produce a work quite unlike anything else you’ve come across before.

Death Threat is an interesting artist act of transforming hate into art. It would be a great teaching tool, within a classroom context, for launching a discussion about all manner of things related to transphobia, hate speech and the internet… as well as the creative process.
