Comic Book Week: March 2, 2011

Hi! Quick review this week because I am a little bit under the weather.........Kara's Comic this week is the 1st part of a 5 part adaptation of the classical Jane Austin book "Emma". I can not recall reading such a retelling of a novel before & I am quite enjoying it so far! The story of course almost must be enveloping since the book has been a favorite for ever & the water color like art work just suits the story so well.....it seems much like a colorful & more cheerful version of Eddie Campbell's art in "From Hell"!

2 things that I will point out about this comic is that it requires a greater investment to read than most.......it took me at least twice the length of time to read that most comix do & I may need to re read it just to be sure that I absorbed the full depth of the story! Also you may find that the characters are less than likeable but I do not think that they are supposed to be........they feel real & that is what matters.

Clearly this comic was meant to attract female readers........& I make that distinction over typical fangirls.........& it does a fabulous job! I was glad to see the bonus feature of "The Mighty Thor"........a personal fav..........even though it was too late to save from cancellation! Highly recommend grabbing the trade paper back ladies!

Kara's Comic this week earns a............

RATING: 8 sunday bonnets out of 10!

As a bonus for International Women's Day here is the Daniel Craig ( :9 ) & Judy Dench video that you have probably already seen or heard about! Bye guys! u r 2 kool 2 b believed! ツ*
