A few more graphic novels – all finished last month but I forgot to post about them for posterity/ tracking purposes for my reading challenge. Volume 3 of Snowpiercer, which was probably the most disturbing of them all for me, and volume 1 and 2 of The Umbrella Academy. I love Umbrella Academy, and enjoyed reading these after watching the series. Snowpiercer 3/5, UA a solid 4.5/5 for me.
Streaming services have really tapped into something, haven’t they? Comics and graphic novels are excellent source material for TV adaptations, and some of my favourite comic reads this year have come about because I’ve backward mapped – watched the show, loved it, read the comics, and then moved on to whatever else those creators were responsible for. I’m definitely adding Gabriel Ba to my list of people to investigate more – the artwork in UA is stunning.
