Bayou vol 2 - Jeremy Love and #FitReaders Check-In: October 9, 2015



South of the Mason-Dixon Line lies a strange land of gods and monsters; a world parallel to our own, born from centuries of slavery, civil war, and hate. Lee Wagstaff is the daughter of a black sharecropper in the depression-era town of Charon, Mississippi. When Lily Westmoreland, her white playmate, is snatched by agents of an evil creature known as Bog, Lee's father is accused of kidnapping. Lee's only hope is to follow Lily's trail into this fantastic and frightening alternate world. Along the way she enlists the help of a benevolent, blues singing, swamp monster called Bayou. Together, Lee and Bayou trek across a hauntingly familiar Southern Neverland, confronting creatures both benign and malevolent, in an effort to rescue Lily and save Lee's father from being lynched.BAYOU VOL. 2 collects four new chapters of the critically acclaimed web comic series by Glyph Award nominee Jeremy Love. 

My thoughts:
It's so hard to review a graphic novel. I did not remember a lot from book 1 either (seems I read it 5 years ago). Just that they were on the run.

But the drawings are really good, that is what I want from a graphic novel. The story itself just seemed to end. There really should be more cos it can't end like that. So more please,

The story, yes they were on the run in this weird land and met rabbits in chaingangs, evil ones and more.

It's different for sure.

  2. Yeah. There really isn't much you can say about a graphic novel. First and foremost, they're typically shorter than regular books.

  13. It really is hard to review graphic novels. Artwork love is different for each person. And the stories are interpreted differently by each person too, with what they see in the images. :)

    Way to keep up the great exercise routines!
