Book Review: Graphic Novel Kick Ass Girl Trio

Being a short month, Book Club decided to read a short book - or rather a graphic novel. We tried to find a few kick-as girl stories, and voted on Snapshot of a Girl. I decided to read all three we voted on though, but as usual, found that graphic novels aren't really my medium.



Snapshots of a Girl
By Belden Sezen
2015
176 pages

This autobiographical collection follows the author as she accepts and comes out as a lesbian. I got the simple, but not deeper message, and was a fan of only half the artwork (the cartoon styled ones, not the more realistic figures). So, just meh.




Lumberjanes, Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy
By Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Shannon Watters, Brooke A. Allen
2015
128 pages

I've been meaning to read this for awhile: who wouldn't love strong female characters hanging out at camp?! Well me apparently. It was just a bit too weird. Probably I'm just getting old.




Nimona
By Noelle Stevenson
2015
272 pages

Evil nemesis fighting noble knight and corrupt institution mixed with quirky shapeshifting sidekick equals fun times, right? I didn't much like this one to start but it grew on me. The ending wasn't disappointing, and even though I only half liked the art, I did like the humour. A worthy quick read.
