Super cute, super fast read about Goldie Vance, girl detective. The retro style gives off big Nancy Drew energy, but Goldie and her friends are super modern. A fun mystery adventure series that I‘ll definitely have to continue reading!

16 year old Goldie Vance is curious and loves solving mysteries in the Florida hotel she works at and her dad manages.

This was such a cute start to the series. I loved Nancy Drew so when is we this was compared to that I had to get it.

Loved this comic book collection - Goldie is a fantastic character but so is everyone else. I really like the retro setting and the art style. It‘s everything I loved about Nancy Drew but written with a modern sensibility - totally recommenced.

I found this while browsing my library‘s ebook offerings last night. I devoured it in one sitting! Goldie works as a parking valet at the hotel her father manages and also helps the inhouse detective when a priceless necklace goes missing. A fun read similar to Nancy Drew with lots of action.

[#ComicBookReview] Goldie Vance Vol 1 was such an amazing beginning to this sweet mystery story! Goldie is a character you really root for and love. Between he color scheme/art style and being on the journey to solve mysteries this comic had me invested the entire time. I highly recommend this comic book series! 🔍💎

Mild pick. Cute art, and an interesting protagonist. It is compared to Lumberjanes a lot, although I think Lumberjanes is better developed, both in characters and plot. Younger fans of that series will like this one, I think.

4am reading 😴

And a really cute comic. 16-year old Goldie valets at her Dad‘s hotel, but ‘helps out‘ the on-site detective when she can. A fun read, diverse characters, bonus points for having a mum who works as a mermaid 🧜‍♀️.

Let‘s try again with the sleep thing now!

Now this is a great way to read a mystery. I love Goldie‘s brashness & the way she‘ll forge ahead with what she knows is right even if it means breaking the rules. In this one a missing necklace leads to a bigger mystery involving kidnapping, racing, Russians & space. The whole attitude of the story is fun & I can‘t wait to see more as I read the other 3 volumes I have waiting for me 😊

Bette I loved the illustrations too! ❤️ 1y

This was so much fun! I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would since I tend to not be too hot on mystery stories. But the 60s time period won me over. Plus Goldie herself is impossible not to root for. I can‘t wait to pick up the rest of the volumes at work tomorrow!

#bookclub night! I talked my group into reading another graphic novel (we‘re now at 2 a year and my goal is 3 😄).
Fun discussion and good food. Perfect night is perfect.

Phlamboyant How did you manage that? I've been trying to sneak in graphic novels at my local mom book club for years. I'm going to try again with Persepolis, but do you have any nomination recommendations? 2y
Eyelit @Phlamboyant it helps that it‘s a feminist book club so the group tends to be more open than any book club I‘ve been in before... but I sucked them in with Saga a couple years ago and have managed to talk them into a few more since then. I‘ve been lucky that they‘ve liked my picks so far 😄 2y
Eyelit @Phlamboyant your idea of starting with Persepolis or similar is a good one! 2y
See All 7 Comments
Phlamboyant @Eyelit They tend to be very chick lit and self journey/discovery focused, which isn't necessarily bad, just not what I'm interested in. I thought things might take a turn with Beloved, but it ended up being pretty cringeworthy hearing a bunch of white ladies (myself included) attempt to discuss that book. It's the only game in town I know of, though! 2y
Eyelit Does your local bookstore or library have book club options? I‘m lucky that if I didn‘t have my current group I‘d have other options through those two places. I know my local comic book store has a couple monthly book clubs and one of them is actually female focused, which is nice! Are there avenues for you to start your own book club with more like minded people? @Phlamboyant 2y
Phlamboyant @Eyelit Wait, leave my home and actually talk to people? 🤣 I checked and we've got some new staff at my local branch trying to start up clubs. There's a whatever you're reading one and an all ages YA one. I might start there. 2y
Phlamboyant @Eyelit I didn't even think to check in with my local bookstore and comic shop. Genius! 2y

I heard Goldie Vance was being adaptated into a movie written by Rashida Jones so obviously I had to read it. And it's so cute! Very much in the vein of Nancy Drew but with an Eloise living-in-a-hotel kind of twist. Lots of mystery, adventure, and hijinks. Also lots of great diversity: most of the characters aren't white and Goldie has a crush on a cute girl at the record store.

I think it'd be a great comic recommendation for kids and teens.

This may well be the cutest girl detective comic ever! Goldie's an apprentice sleuth who's able to suss out the perps' motives and predict their moves because she pays attention to people, which she does because she genuinely cares. I love her friendships, too, and her crush is awful sweet.

Even though there're a few teenage activities, I'd say this first vol is all-ages. Kids might miss some stuff, but they'll still love it. #comics #queerbooks

⭐⭐⭐/5

Goldie Vance (vol. 1) was the second book I finished during #deweys24hourreadathon

And since I think @Bibli0.Nyan has the coolest way of reviewing books, I'd like to give her style a try. So here we go!

🔍 Fabulous illustrations, great colors
🔍 Spunky girl detective who knows her cars!
🔍 Beautiful cast of diverse characters
🔍 Subtle yet sweet LGBT storyline
🔍 Fun mystery with an unexpected, out-of-this-world twist

#readathonwrapup

BiblioNyan This is how I write all of my reviews— on my blog and GoodReads as well. 2y
Librariana @Bibli0.Nyan - well, I love 'em! They're pretty phenomenal and fun and HONEST! (major points for this last one) I love how you take such an in-depth look at literary elements and talk about these in a refreshingly approachable way. 2y

Where was this comic when I was growing up? A smart, talented, athletic, girl of color as a Nancy Drew like amateur detective? YES PLEASE. Add that she has a crush on an equally smart, fun, brave, cute girl and you have someone staying up late to read all of volume 1 and an avid fan. Perfect art style for the feel of this comic also. I am going to have to pick up the paper version of these. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

This was recommended to me awhile ago by a kind litten- and I loved it! Gorgeous illustrations, Goldie's mystery solving zeal is infectious - although did she just save a Nazi? And how old is she supposed to be? (The car thing always confuses me in American books)

Lindy I've yet to read this, but the description says she's 16. Where I live, you can get a learner's permit at 14 and a driver's licence at 16. (For alcohol and voting, you have to wait until 18.) 2y
queerbookreader @Lindy Are you in the states? I thought every state made the drinking age 21. In New York you have to be at least 16 to get a permit and I don't think you can take your road test until 17 2y
Lindy @lemonlime799 Nope. I'm in Canada. Driving age and drinking age vary between provinces. I started driving (on our farm only) at age 9. 2y
See All 7 Comments
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Lindy, it does indeed say 16 in the description 😳 she feels a bit younger than the other characters. In Australia, you can sit the test for your Learners Permit but are not allowed to drive alone until you've clocked up 120 hours of practice with a person on an unrestricted licence... and you've passed the practical Probationary test (then you get to put P plates on your car for three years!) Drinking and voting age here is 18. It's always a bit (edited) 2y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag jarring when I see a teen solo behind the wheel... @lemonlime799 ^ 2y
queerbookreader @thegirlwiththelibrarybag Well, Nancy Drew is a teenager and she drives around in her own car! 2y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @lemonlime799, can't say I've experienced much Nancy Drew... I take your point tho, it's just not my norm. 2y
