    Coming of age GN about an outsider young woman who s obsessed with a HP lookalike book series She s heartbroken when the last book of her beloved series is over and really really wants the magic world to be real This is a great example of great storytelling paired with unimpressive illustrations The book feels like something a teenager drew themselves occasionally the drawings feelprofessional, but that sthe exception than the rule I read this right after attempting to read ano Coming of age GN about an outsider young woman who s obsessed with a HP lookalike book series She s heartbroken when the last book of her beloved series is over and really really wants the magic world to be real This is a great example of great storytelling paired with unimpressive illustrations The book feels like something a teenager drew themselves occasionally the drawings feelprofessional, but that sthe exception than the rule I read this right after attempting to read another coming of age GN with mystical properties, and was impressed by the contrast Although the illustrations on that unnamed GN were farprofessional looking in some ways, the story bored me and I didn t make it past the first chapter This one was candy.There s a bit of sexual content this is an uncensored piece that feels like it sprang directly from a teen brain

    Penelope and Ginny Skinner create this pretty great story about a girl who aspires to be a psychic wizard who lives primarily in her room preferring the fantasy of a Harry Potter type series she has been reading to Real Life which means school and friends who are not really so nice to connect with and her parents divorce She has image issues she sees herself as fat and ugly though she is curious about whether real boys may have something over fantasy ones And then she sees, after failin Penelope and Ginny Skinner create this pretty great story about a girl who aspires to be a psychic wizard who lives primarily in her room preferring the fantasy of a Harry Potter type series she has been reading to Real Life which means school and friends who are not really so nice to connect with and her parents divorce She has image issues she sees herself as fat and ugly though she is curious about whether real boys may have something over fantasy ones And then she sees, after failing miserably at magic for the longest time, her dead Grandmother who lives for a time in her room and has unresolved issues of her own in that she left the world in a conflict with her husband of 66 years So this is a ghost story that in art and story and dialogue reflects a teen girl s life In one sense it feels a little like Esther Pearl Watson s hilarious Unlovable series, but this isn t as raucous as that it sseriously about the relationship between art and life, between literary stories and life She gets kicked out of school for not putting away a book in class and she has to see therapists. but in magically helping to resolve the conflict between her Grandpa and Grandma and in developing a little crush on a Snape looking goth boy, some development happens.What is it with women comics and ghosts Here s a bunch of them, and librarians teachers, you could do a book talk about them Friends with Boys by Faith Hicks, Anya s Ghost by Vera Brosgol, Festering Romance by Renee Lott, Mercury by Hope Larson, The Undertaking of Lily Chen by Danica Novgorodoff, Gingerbread Girl by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover, Polterguys by Laura Uys and a memoir story about growing up with ghosts by Corinne Mucha in It Doesn t Exist I had just read Gingerbread Girl and Festering Romance all in this past week and didn t like them so much but really liked this one a lot My other faces are Friends with Boys and Anya s Ghost and Corinne Mucha s story Sometimes the ghost is scary, sometimes it s a metaphor for not letting go of the past, such as a boyfriend or someone but it s interesting women writers seem to use ghosts , andfor younger audiences, maybe but it is an entertaining and interesting device, for sure, and time honored, of course

    I don t like many graphic novels This one is perfection It pulled on my heart strings, made me laugh, and made me sigh with nostalgia I have two favorite lines in this book I will never find a magical kingdom in the back of a wardrobe I will never get an owl inviting me to Wizard School I also like the line at the end, this isn t the end of the story It s just where you have to stop reading The only negative thing I have to say is that the unflattering nudity was a bit off putting, b I don t like many graphic novels This one is perfection It pulled on my heart strings, made me laugh, and made me sigh with nostalgia I have two favorite lines in this book I will never find a magical kingdom in the back of a wardrobe I will never get an owl inviting me to Wizard School I also like the line at the end, this isn t the end of the story It s just where you have to stop reading The only negative thing I have to say is that the unflattering nudity was a bit off putting, but it fit the character well, and made itrealistic I checked this book out at the library, but will definitely want to own it sometime in the future I could re read this a million times, and still love it

    Briony Hatch is a slim graphic novel, coloured in black and whites and reminiscent of something doodled in pen and ink on the inside of an exercise book It s definitely a story of two halves the intense teenage ennui of life and the struggle of Briony to figure out where she fits in, coupled with a rather intensely poignant and sardonically true to life, oddly enough tale of love and ghosts and regrets Overlaying both stories is Briony s devotion to the book series Starling Black and her Briony Hatch is a slim graphic novel, coloured in black and whites and reminiscent of something doodled in pen and ink on the inside of an exercise book It s definitely a story of two halves the intense teenage ennui of life and the struggle of Briony to figure out where she fits in, coupled with a rather intensely poignant and sardonically true to life, oddly enough tale of love and ghosts and regrets Overlaying both stories is Briony s devotion to the book series Starling Black and her deep and pained reading of the final book in the series Think Harry Potter and Fangirl and you re about on point with that one The big key point about Briony Hatch is twofold and I apologise now that I seem to be splitting everything about this review into bifold reasoning, but hey ho, maybe it s the weather or something and the first is the art Briony is very much herself, from her tumultous and haphazard hair through to the butterfly wing bulge of her stomach and her intense and scene dominating eyes It s quite the thing to have all of this conveyed in black and white and it s a little startling at first, but once you come to terms with it, it s hard to not love it just a little bit The second bright strength of Briony Hatch rests in the humour There are a few moments when Briony meanders off into daydreams, blurring her life with that of Starling Black, and when the daydreams become rather pleasurable,she comments This fantasy is better than I thought There s a few other rather delicious asides throughout I am of the internet generation So even though I ve never had sex My imagination is extremely graphic Where Briony Hatch does suffer though is with the lettering and stylistics of that lettering It s all delivered in a, whilst appropriate, personal and handwritten style that does fit but does, also, seem somehow jarring for the wider tones of the story engaged in in the second half Whilst that is worth noting, it s worth noting in the context of a story that s rather deliciously unique and a little bit of a surprise and a lot of pleasure

    Oh good, another book to reassure me that my strangeness is shared with others I may not go as far as Briony, but fandom is definitely in my blood Is it normal to totally obsess and fantasize about magic and favorite, not real characters I don t know about normal, but it happens Briony LOVES a character in her favorite book series Her life revolves around it So when the final book in the series comes out, and she finishes reading it, then what Everyone tells her to get her head out of the Oh good, another book to reassure me that my strangeness is shared with others I may not go as far as Briony, but fandom is definitely in my blood Is it normal to totally obsess and fantasize about magic and favorite, not real characters I don t know about normal, but it happens Briony LOVES a character in her favorite book series Her life revolves around it So when the final book in the series comes out, and she finishes reading it, then what Everyone tells her to get her head out of the clouds, magic isn t real, and to focus on real life, but Briony just won t accept it She has to find out of magic and spirits are real, or else the real world is going to be super boring

    I laughed my ass off when I was reading this book I can relate to Briony s obsession over her favorite fantasy series as I am still not okay that I didn t get my Hogwarts letter when I was eleven Oh god, her reading in class while the teacher droned on about dates killed me Her doing spells in her bedroom wearing nothing but her underwear and her bathrobe which subbed for a cloak for a magical cloak I think killed me I loved how she was drawn with her hair all big and her belly hanging ov I laughed my ass off when I was reading this book I can relate to Briony s obsession over her favorite fantasy series as I am still not okay that I didn t get my Hogwarts letter when I was eleven Oh god, her reading in class while the teacher droned on about dates killed me Her doing spells in her bedroom wearing nothing but her underwear and her bathrobe which subbed for a cloak for a magical cloak I think killed me I loved how she was drawn with her hair all big and her belly hanging over her underwear I loved her lists I loved all the commentary about how boring real life was while she tuned out people who are telling her how she should grow up I loved how, despite resisting real life at the beginning, she learned how to engage with it and grow up in her own way I don t really have anything bad to say about it.I thought it was a really unique and funny coming of age story

    This was mildly entertaining, although it felt like two different stories The first part felt real the palpable loss of a really good book series is something many readers can relate to The next part ghost story was a little weird and just seemed not to quite gel with the first part All said, it was just okay.
