For this Fearless Friday, I’m venturing into a genre I don’t ordinarily read: the graphic novel. I love art, I love all things visual, how they provoke me. But I think I’ve always preferred the written word over the illustrated version because the worlds I imagined in my head were always superior. My only previous experience in this genre is with Watchmen by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons…unless you count a minor obsession with Wonder Woman’s representation in comics over the years (the creator’s wife went to Mount Holyoke College so we have a lot of archival materials on the subject), which I don’t. So when I read the synopsis of this book online, I immediately thought it would be a good choice for this whole Fearless Friday project. Enough of a change to be interesting, but a subject close enough that I could definitely relate to it. (I’m not a big sci-fi person either and the graphic novels I was browsing before all kind of seem to lean that way. Am I wrong in that generalization? I’m very earthy, thank you very much.) And hey, SPOILER ALERT for the rest of my review! (view spoiler)
