“That’s not real life. Not everything has a moral or is tied up neatly with a bow” (pg 168).
In SuperMutant Magic Academy by Jillian Tamaki (274 pages), some of the comics were funny, morbid, and/or philosophical. I didn’t particularly like this series because it felt too edgy or a bit tryhard and a lot of the characters’ personalities were horrid (which is actually realistic because people in real life can be horrible).
I couldn’t stand Marsha but unrequited love is pretty sad. On the other hand, Frances the art student was hilarious!
The illustrations are loose and lackadaisical, a perfect portrayal of the average high school student.
I like dark humor sometimes, but I just wasn’t thrilled with it in this book. You might think differently though, so check it out!
