Day 5.152: Graphic novels
We have become a family that reads graphic novels.
I picked up a copy of Akira from the library a few months ago with that 'it's a classic I should probably see what I make of it' feeling.
I enjoyed it enough to find out that it was just the first of six volumes. I've read five of them now - but the Capital District library system doesn't seem to have volume 6 - aaargh!
Exile #3 brought 'Bone' home from the school library and told Exile #2 she should read it. Now Exile #3 and Exile #4 are hooked, Exile #2 is still waiting to get another chance to read one and even E5N1 is declaring his love for them and borrowing them in the car - despite their being slightly above his reading age at the moment.
It doesn't stop him picking up the form. Here is his own creation - it starts with the cover with his name on it - and ends, well, with everything/everyone going pop!
