Be aware there’s a bunch of cursing and crude language, almost excessively. The appeal of the humor is all the messed-up/f’ed up junk that happened in Tiffany’s life. Oh my God. Sometimes, it got heavy. Nothing is politically-correct (disabled jokes, poop in shoes, etc) and a lot of trauma is present through carefully covert jokes.
But real life can’t be censored.
Anyway, I like the choppy, episodic chapters because it’s easy to put down and start reading again. Honestly, many of the sentences are written in AAVE, which is cool.
Much more entertaining than the first but a bit too crude for my taste…Too many poop jokes for me. :p Anyway, I did find Dash very fun with her childlike wonderment. I guess I’m stuck waiting for the third because these books never get to the meat of the story.
Beautiful artwork though the story jumps a bit sporadically. It has a sophisticated, quirky feel to it, and Imhotep’s father couldn’t have given a single care. He was also the highlight of the story if you ask me.
The artwork is super cute and Mickey is kind of adorable. The story itself though just has no real purpose. The ending is majorly anti-climatic. I figured all of Mickey’s transgressions were building up to something but nah. I just… What was the point? I think this would work better as a webcomic.
Also, I am so tired of Mickey’s uncle’s constant “crook” spiel. Go shove it up your nose!
Yes, the lowercase ‘b’ was intentional. Why? I don’t know, man. It’s Friday, so who really cares? Spring semester starts this Monday for me, and I just want to read books until then. :p My goal this year is to read over 30 books.
I went to the library and racked up on graphic novels 😀
Still working on self-publishing my first book. This isn’t really something you can do half-baked, so I’m really trying to research things. I wish marketing wasn’t such a big deal.
Also, my language-learning is going well. Puedo leer libros en español ahora.
It’s been a good length of time since my last post. School and Irma took a lot of my time and mental energy, but I’m still reading. Actually, I won an ARC of Not Now, Not Everthat I’m currently reading (I’m on page 90).
Also, I’m getting for real, for real serious about publishing my first middle-grade children’s book, Dreaded Dinner Party. I am eyeing a November or December release date, but who knows I might have to push it back or forward.
Anyway, just a heads-up that I’m still active. I feel like I’ve used “I’m” too much in this post. Oh well…
What’s up, guys! This was a delightful read. More than ever it makes me really want to publish my first book. This one’s going to be pretty short, almost like a mini review.
“You are someone, Rickety Stitch. That much I know.”
Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo: The Road to Epoli by Ben Costa & James Parks(208 pages) is about Rickety, a free-thinking skeleton who comically misses the point and has some disturbing dreams. Recently through a haunting song that stirs up memories in Rickety’s head and after being fired from a dungeon-keeper job, he decides to go on a journey to discover who/what he was before a singing skeleton.
I hadn’t expected too much out of this story besides some awesome art, but I found the story kind of heartwarming. To be honest not too much happens in this book. I will say it’s a great set up because I am eager for the second book.
