I ended up DNFing this book after reading other reviews that say that Han Solo and Chewbacca are only in the first chapter. So I read the first chapter, tried the second chapter, got bored and gave up.
I don’t super love the art style. Han looks like his face is all distorted or something. The aliens look cool, but that’s because they are supposed to be distorted and weird-looking.
Two aliens of different species fall in love while their two moons are at war. Against impossible odds, they try to convince their families that they can live together in peace.
This graphic novel has no words other than “Bam!”, “Smash!”, “Boom!”, “Blast!” , and “Explode!” as the two alien groups wage their war. The art work is so expressive and the panels make the action so clear that you don’t need words!
Whit joins the yearbook club and takes some pictures around school, but when he develops the photos he sees children in the background who were not actually there. Could there be ghosts haunting the old abandoned sections of the school? With the help of this fellow students in yearbook club, he begins to investigate the missing children who have disappeared from the school over the years, and finds that the ghosts are trapped in a shadow realm. Could there be a way to save them?
This graphic novel doesn’t really have a story. It’s more like a collection of poetic lines with a loose story line of a lady unicorn, who gazes at the moon with her princess friend and little fauns. She meets a male unicorn and the artwork shows the male jumping over her while she rolls on her back on the ground. This is suggestive, but the text just says that “Love meets Life”. Then we understand that the lady unicorn is pregnant.
When the baby unicorn is born, the illustrations show the baby coming out of the mother in the process of birth. It’s quite graphic but beautiful. The text describes the pain and blood, and the artwork shows the placenta. But it doesn’t feel inappropriate or gross. It shows the miracle of birth in a special way.
Snoop, the mountain goat, dreams of going on a quest to find the primordial grass. In this first volume, Snoop remembers a legend of an ancient goat who discovered the primordial grass and made a deal with cavemen to protect his herd.

¡Esta es una novela gráfica tan linda! La historia es imaginativa y divertida. Me encantaron las chicas inteligentes y sus actitudes amistosas. Son ingeniosos a través de todas sus aventuras. ¡Hay tantas escenas divertidas que me hicieron reír!
Stabby the unicorn ends up stabbing everyone in the eye, and he gets jaded and dark and depressed. He can’t keep a job. He accidentally burst his birthday balloons with his horn. He is full of angst and anxiety. And it’s hilarious!
I have to admit, this book did make me laugh. But there were many parts that I couldn’t enjoy because of the profanity and and vulgarity and general disgustingness. I’m not sure why this is marketed as “teen and adult humor”. It’s definitely adult humor. I would never give this to a teen to read.
This graphic novel follows Prince Kaidan, who travels to a faraway island for combat training with his aunt. When he returns, he finds the kingdom in ruins and his parents dead or missing. With a price on his head, Kaidan can trust no one, and he is being hunted wherever he goes.
I loved the legendary tropes in this book! Kaidan is like a young King Arthur, and there is also a Robin Hood type character, but the story isn’t really a retelling of either of those stories. There are elements from those legends, but this story stands on its own. I can’t wait to read the next volume in the series!
