There were some shining hilarity or character development moments in this volume, including the return of Scary Terry, the great follow-through between two issues where an end gag ends up being the next major plot point, & a short at the end where Rick and Morty are traumatized more than usual. Overall, though, this volume didn't quite have the same feel as the show. Timing, jokes, & characters felt a little underdeveloped. #Comic #Adaptation

A pretty fun 1st volume! Two siblings who have always loved Final Fantasy games work their way onto the Square Enix team, only to find themselves in a fantasy world following an accident. The world building is fun, the art is beautiful, and the characters are interesting enough. A little problematic when a character dealing with grief is advised to smile because the dead party member would have wanted it. #manga #fantasy #FinalFantady #Adaptation

I haven‘t read the novel, but the graphic novel adaptation was pretty interesting. I loved the Diaper Gang and their dedication to helping their community by just taking care of babies for free. The storm scenes were interesting, and added some fun drama. The setting is well portrayed as well. Content warnings for abandonment and economic hardship. #Comic #Adaptation

I love discovering Avatar comics I haven't read yet. This was a fun look at some of Suki's past, as well as what happened while she was in The Boiling Rock before the escape. #Adaptation #Comic #Avatar #TransmediaStorytelling

Apple TV is killing it on the streaming market!! TED LASSO, Dickinson, For all Mankind, and now an #adaptation of #Pachinko. I‘ve have watched the first episode and I really enjoyed it. They are not telling the story chronologically, which helps me follow it better since I don‘t remember a lot from the book.

jen_the_scribe Pachinko keeps popping up for me everywhere, I might have to get myself a copy. 6mo

Went to B&N and spotted this cozy mystery on the shelf! #adaptation #PemberLittens

I like how the artist chose to use Keira Knightley as their model!!!

Frankissstein: A Love Story | Jeanette Winterson

Mary Shelley dreams up a monster novel in the 1810s, and a man two hundred years later ponders over what constitutes life and death. This wasn't the right book for me, but it is a good book. I didn't enjoy the ongoing existential conversations about whether life was still life if you were in a new body. I also didn't appreciate the sex robot guy (but I think that's the point). I really liked the dual timeline element! #Adaptation #Scifi #LGBTQ

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz | Skottie Young, Eric Shanower

A very fun graphic novel! I loved the art style, and the flow of the narrative was intriguing. I used to watch the Wizard of Oz movie, and this filled in so many gaps! I've never read The Wizard of Oz. After reading about the author's pro-Native-American-genocide stance, I probably won't read it. I probably will keep reading these graphic novels, though! They seem like they're probably a good adaptation. #Comic #Adaptation #ClassicLit

Just part of the way through the first episode, and I'm loving this Netflix adaptation! I haven't read the books yet, so it might be different for someone who has. #Adaptation #Fantasy
