Life With Mr. Dangerous
Now that I'm through my current stack of library books I can start on the even larger stack of graphic novels that I got from there. The first is Paul Hornschemeier's Life with Mr. Dangerous. This was my first experience with Paul's work although it won't be my last. It's a simple little story of a young woman trying to figure out her place. Where she belongs. Who she is. Not exactly high stakes material, but it's so well drawn (literally and emotionally :) ). As Patton Oswalt comments ont he back cover, it has it all and it will make you cringe. A lot. But in such a lovely way.
I fell in love with this book pretty quickly while reading and will probably give it another look over before I return it. Chances are I'll hunt it down to purchase as well. If you like coming of age comics this one is a no brainer. Check it out.
