I have no idea why I haven't started in on this graphic novel series before now because I like the movies. Needless to say I had pretty high hopes for the source material (the books are usually better, right?), and for the most part my expectations were met. Hellboy is just so much fun. The art and the characters feel like they could just walk off the page. Plus, there's a bit more depth to the comics and Hellboy is a bit more philosophical here than he is in the movies. Overall, I highly recommend this graphic novel - and I will definitely be continuing on with the series.
I read this graphic novel from February 3 - 5, 2018 and my review is also on Goodreads.

I went into this is fairly blind - I had the most basic idea of what this graphic memoir's about. I'm not sure how I managed to go in that way since I'm coming in twelve years late. Either way, I was fully engaged from the beginning. I wanted to help unravel the mystery of Alison's father's life alongside her as she's coming to terms with herself and her newfound knowledge about him. This memoir is practically the epitome of the dysfunctional family and is full of raw emotion. If you haven't already tried Fun Home by Alsion Bechdel, you need to pick up a copy soon.

Next Up For March:
My choice: The Opposite of Loneliness by Maria Keegan - Keegan passed away in a 2012 car accident, this collection of her stories and essays was published two years later. I've heard so many great things about this bestselling collection, and it's about time I see what it's all about.
A celebrity memoir
My choice: As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the Princess Bride by Cary Elwes - The Princess Bride is one of my favorite movies, so, of course, I feel like I should have read this yesterday. Plus, I plan on trying it on audio which is narrated by Elwes and features the voice talents of many others from the film.
