Well, it took me a while to get this out of her (far too much time doing stuff over Christmas to be bothered doing this), but here we go, just sneaking in before I get around to doing the FPI Master List 2012….
Number 1 daughter Molly brings you her best 3 of 2012 (and 1 from 2011 – mean daddy Richard)
Ellerbisms – Marc Ellerby
I picked this up at Thought Bubble 2012 and I really enjoyed it,because it was full of emotion, and I love Marc’s artwork.
I really liked the fact that it was his real life story about his relationship with Anna, and how involved I felt. It gets really complicated, even really upsetting at times, but that just shows how powerful and moving it is.
The Everyday – Adam Cadwell
This was another diary comic that I picked up at Thought Bubble, this was really good as well, with Adam writing about his life and all the things that happened to him. Not as emotional or moving as Ellerbisms, but lots of fun watching all the little things going on in his ‘everyday’ life!
And it was fun finding out about Adam’s love of Vimto!
Drama – Raina Telgemeier
I loved Raina’s Smile so so so much, and was ever so excited about this one. Dad described it to me as Smile plus Glee, and that sounded great to me!
And it was everything I wanted, and more. Maybe a bit more for older readers than Smile, but still just as fun and good and with great characters and art.
Troop 142 – Mike Dawson
Mean father wouldn’t let me have this extra in here, because he said it wasn’t published in 2012. Mean.
Thanks to Zainab for sending it along, it was great…. such a fun read, Mike Dawson really describes a camp of any sort, many camps have things going wrong, someone always brings something they’re not meant to, but it’s usually bringing a phone not drugs! I would have liked it to be longer, but it seems like he got everything in the book.
