Completing, you ask? Well, I have started to read one other and it was so confusing I couldn’t figure it out. And I like to think I’m a smart person!
You might recall that I have a historical interest in the Borgia family (and no, I haven’t really watched the new Showtime series. I’ve watched bits here and there, but I sadly don’t have much time for tv shows of my own.) Because of my interest in the Borgias I once stumbled upon a series of graphic novels called “Cantarella” that looked interesting so I wish listed them on Paperback Swap.
When I finally got the first one in, it didn’t take long for me to figure out that any comic book experience I had in the past no longer applied here. It’s Japanese Manga I guess, so that must be why it was so different. I don’t really know what the differences are, but I just couldn’t get into it.
Then I’ve checked out The Walking Dead graphic novels because my Kindle was offering some for free. I thought since I loved the show I might want to start reading the “books”. Wrong. They were just like comic books and I felt like it was a waste of my time.
Getting Married and Other Mistakes was so quick to read, I actually finished it, hooray! It was cute, but I can’t say I see myself getting really into the genre. And it’s sad, because it would really give me more geek cred if I could!
What about you? Do you read graphic novels?
