Phew! I finished just in time!
I was only able to read 2 books but they were still a fun time.
In true Ghibli-style artwork, every turn of a page reveals a brilliant new set of colors. This would make a stunning animated film, maybe Studio Ponoc could do it or Dreamworks based on their amazing CG sand work in Rise of the Guardians. It was a little difficult at first to get into the story with so many different words unique to this universe thrown about and there is so much put in bold that if it’s supposed to be the character’s emphasizing all of them in one speak bubble, it makes the dialogue sound off. There was a lot of that, but the artwork – for me – makes up for it, it’s a graphic novel and a wonderfully crafted one at that. Can’t wait to read the second volume!
A fun friendship day! Could’ve easily been an episode in the series but the comic book style works – just a quick read and good time. Rapunzel’s consistent, positive energy is always something to aspire to have.
