Title: Storm Born: Volume 1 – 3 (Storm Born Comic- graphic novel)
Review: I’m not a big graphic novel or comic book reader, my youngest loves Captain Underpants and Star Wars so we have read those books, graphic novels together. This was a stretch for my taste, but since starting this blog I have read things out of my comfort zone and preferred genre and I am beginning to have a great appreciation of what is out there to read. I have mainly stuck to the big bestselling authors in the past and I enjoyed those books, but I have to say now that I’m reading so many different genres and authors that I have a whole new outlook on reading. There is so much out there that I find myself wishing I had taken this route years ago. So thank you to all of the authors and publishers out there who have opened my eyes to the true adventure reading can be.
Back to Storm Born…the drawings in these comics are well done and help keep the story moving along. The main character did spend a large amount of time not fully dressed, and there is sex so this is not for the young reader. The story is fast paced and moves quickly, no time to get bored or drift off in thought. Number one ended and I wanted to know what was happening so I went right to number two. Number two I didn’t enjoy as much as number one, but number three was much improved and I was left hanging wondering what would happen next.
If you enjoy graphic novels I’m sure you will enjoy these, but if you have never read a book like this…give it a try…or Pariah…or any other book out there that is out of your comfort genre. There is so much to read and learn…get out there and try something new today.
