A fun collection of literary comics about bibliophiles, classic novels, writing life and covid rules as applied to literary characters. I chuckled at several and related hard to some. Very fun afternoon.

Sheets sequel, borrowed from # hoopla. On my hook : Nessie shawl in a mix of BWM and Malabrigo wools. My colourway goal was to evoke Kambarang wildflowers on Noongar country. #litsycrafters

StaceGhost Your hook has been busy! Gorgeous work :) (edited) 1d

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Worth the hiatus, but a stressful read. A few years have passed, yet the war rages. Hazel and her badass family are managing as best they can. Vaughan / Staples never disappoint. There is beauty in the pain.

This one confused me. I‘m not sure why. It clearly has a following & the writer has worked on Lumberjanes so, Cool! Lumberjanes!

As you can see we have several mythical creatures working in a coffee stop. The centaur loses his centaur 🍑 to an evil ghost magician & can‘t stop crying over his great centaur 🍑.

Okay then. Just doesn‘t work for me but take your chance & try it.

It‘s currently a Hoopla Free Borrow.

Oh this was just a delight. Tackling that questionable time when you‘ve graduated college, but can‘t find a job in your field, and did you really want to do that anyway? Ben is discovering that he doesn‘t, really, and would rather cook in a restaurant, much to his parents disappointment. Bonus- the spud chef is Liam, a very kind, supportive, attractive guy who Ben might be crushing on…. I hope there‘s more coming!!

This GN about an alienated man & his bunny was heading towards a So-So, but managed to pull some psychological depth out of its hat (see what I did there 🎩🐰) at the end that raised it to a low Pick.
Appearances to the contrary, this isn't a children's book, its themes being existential angst, emotional cowardice/defensiveness/avoidance (depending on how judgemental you're feeling) and adult relationships, with a side-order of cutesy goofiness.

Bookwomble The photo I've taken shows up the dirt on this library book, which makes me feel rather icky! 😬 3d

Shuna's Journey | Hayao Miyazaki
post image
Pickpick

Published in Japan in 1983, two years before Studio Ghibli launched, just now published in English, this graphic novel is a gift for fans of the beloved animator Hayao Miyazaki. Inspired by a Tibetan folktale about their staple grain barley, Shuna‘s Journey is a sparely written but beautifully told and richly illustrated fable about the power of interdependence, working in relationship with the land, and sowing the seeds for a brighter future.

I can‘t believe it took so long for the English translation but I‘m grateful it was published nonetheless. I‘m a huge fan of his work and just had to snag this one when it came out for preorder. It was a quick read, but I tried to savor every illustrated detail and every word. It‘s based on a Tibetan folktale but with Miyazaki‘s magical touch. It was a beautiful, sometimes eerie tale with an important hidden theme and a perfect ending.

I love Ito and his brain. He has such a way of making you creep out a bit and feel ... just yeah. I don't know how to describe it. But these short stories were great :)
