Pink Me quick opinion: Meh.
Pink Me quick opinion: The usual flawless adaptation by P. Craig Russell - his mastery of the form is almost invisible, if that makes sense. One of the ten best graphic novels of the year.
Pink Me quick opinion: Awful.
Pink Me quick opinion: Grows on you. Terrific colors, cute story. Recommended.

Korgi 2: the cosmic collector
written and illustrated by Christian Slade. TopShelf
Pink Me quick opinion: Beautiful illustration. The juxtaposition of girls with wings with vicious little toy robots is very satisfying. Not exactly Barbarella for nine-year-olds, but maybe you get the idea. EXCELLENT for animal-loving little girls.

Pink Me quick opinion: Good colors, cute story, appealing characters. But kind of a dud.
Salt Water Taffy, book 1: the legend of Old Salty
written and illustrated by Matthew Loux. Oni Press
Pink Me quick opinion: Predictable even in its surrealness. I can't sell it at the library. Mom exists only to hand out food and batteries. Ehh.
Silly Lilly and the Four Seasons
written and illustrated by Agnes Rosenstiehl. Toon Books
Pink Me quick opinion: So full of borrowed elements from other books (Howl's Moving Castle, Spiderwick, Golden Compass), I had trouble keeping the rather bleak story straight. Amazing art though.

written by G.P. Taylor. SaltRiver (Tyndale)
Pink Me quick opinion: Hated it. Mean characters, confusing art, sloppily-written story, plus? God.
There's a Wolf at the Door: five classic tales
written by Zoe Alley. illustrated by R.W. Alley. Roaring Brook
Pink Me quick opinion: Nice, especially for R.W. Alley fans.
