Comic Crush Saturday: July 6, 2019
Welcome to Comic Crush Saturday, our bi-weekly feature focused on the graphic elements of the book world. Comics became a huge part of my life a few years ago when I started reviewing them (and comic related TV shows) on Forever Young Adult. I’ve maintained a pulllist through my local comic shop, Isotope Comics, and even got Kelly to start one ;). You’ll find mini-reviews, what we’ve read recently, and more so check it out!
Featured Review of the Week
After reading the original Manfried novel, I didn’t think this creative team could outdo themselves. BUT I LOVED THIS ONE EVEN MORE.
While the first book focused primarily in Manfried and his relationship with his owner, Manfried Saves the Day focuses on saving the local shelter and ensuring Men have a safe space until they find new Cats. To do this, the Men participate in a pageant.
Manfriend Saves the Day has:
- Cute Men doing pageant things
- A mystery storyline
- Friends coming together!
- Adorable art that draws you in
If you find humor in:
– cats as people
– men as cats
– typical cat behaviors
This might be the book for you. With even more heart that Manfried’s first foray into the book world, every cat lover is sure to aww over Manfried saving the day. He really is a hero!
I hope we get more Manfried in the future!
