Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When DC canceled its Minx line of YA graphic novels, it left a handful of well-received books wallowing on the vine, such as Wood and Kelly’s The New York Four (2008). But the duo kept up the story in single-issue format, which is collected here. The story picks up right where Four left off during four young women’s freshman year in New York City. The cramped quarters of their shared, off-campus apartment is leading to frayed nerves, and the story does an admirable job of following each girl’s evolving world of twentysomething dramas as they intersect and diverge from one another. A fifth girl is added to the mix, but no character is as developed as Wood’s infatuated portrayal of New York itself, compounded by travel-guide tips on local hot spots and venerated urban institutions as well as Kelly’s fantastic, near-photorealistic backdrops and expressive characters imbued with leggy-model looks and hipster gravitas. The ultimate point, which will resonate with a good many readers, is that simply being young and in New York is something to be celebrated as an art form in itself. Grades 10-12. --Ian Chipman

Format: Paperback
Who would have thought that a story like this could actually be done and it would give out such a fun read. This follow up to the New York Four story has some of the most fun and cool writing Ive seen in years and some pretty nice art. I like to think of this as the right way to do Sex and the City mainly because its also set in New York and it revolves around a group of female characters and their love lifes and relations but thats as far as similarities go. This is an example of an extraordinary comic that isnt super hero themed in any way. Its mature and clever.

My only complain is on the overly romantic way the writer tries to portrait New York. We all know the Big Apple is considered by many as one of the coolest most fun places in the world, but the book makes it so that stuff like walking down a side walk or having a cup of coffie, if done withing New York, are extrasensorial activities. Beyond that, I really enjoyed the hole thing.

Heres another one for those who want mature comics.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Loved the new book - had bought a few of the individual comics at my local store but there is nothing like having the full series in 1 book. The graphics and story line are awesome. I love how the city views are incorporated - I feel like I'm there and would have deja vu moment if I went to the actual areas depicted in the book. Keep the series coming!
