it was amazing

Graphic novels and comic books are some of the most personal mediums out there. The combination of writing and images can invoke so many more feelings than just writing in many ways. This is why I’m stunned at how graphic stories are at the forefront of diversity and inclusion in media today. In “Dodge City” we have characters of different ethnic backgrounds or races, queer characters, even a differently abled character where his deafness is incorporated logically into the story with text messages and ASL. Large portions of the story are only in Spanish. It’s amazing to see how many people are not represented in many different stories when you look at characters as diverse as those in “Dodge City.”

Members of a dodgeball team called the Jazz Pandas, this team of misfits at the bottom of the rankings are fighting against their rivals and another team to win the tournament. Like so many other sports-based stories, this is just the impetus to bring these characters together, but the heart of the story is their relationships.

I loved this book and I recommend it for anyone who likes “The Backstagers” or “Check, Please!” or “Fence” or “Lumberjanes.” This is a collection of the first four issues of the comic series and a great start. Please let me know if you’ve read this what you think about it. I’d love to talk about this with others. • Comic Book Collection • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ • Found through online recommendations. • Purchased online.▪️
