This book isn't for someone who is looking for a long, melodramatic story. This is a fast paced, gets to the emotional point tale of love and loss and potential love again.
The only down side was at some points the art seemed a tad too rushed, especially at the beginning. But it eventually catches up and, by the end of the second chapter meshes very well with the story Thompson is telling.
This book was really great, and will have you asking all sorts of incredibly emotional questions. Why is she....?!? Where did the...?!? If you want something fun and light but will pull at all of the heart strings, this completely inclusive graphic novel is for you!
I rooted for Emma all the way, even as she wrestled with her conscience about the fallout from her choices. Life isn't always pretty. But by the end of the book, Emma has grown. And I doubt she'll make the same mistakes twice.
I first came across Thompson from her comics blogging, and I'm so thrilled to see her pursuing this path with her writing. She's very talented. McClaren's art may not be for everyone. It's a bit complicated. But it makes you love the characters, since it's clear she loves them so much herself. They all have great hair, too.
I went into this comic knowing nothing about it, and I recommend staying as close to that as possible. The back cover text gives away too much in my opinion, so I’d avoid it (and website descriptions of the book, etc) if at all possible.
I picked this up because of the intriguing cover and being previously familiar with Meredith McClaren’s amazing art. Her self written comic Hinges is a joy. Her style and versatility is a perfect match for Kelly Thompson’s desperate tale of adult heartbreak, emptiness, and growth.
There are parts I wish we’re fleshed out a little more and a couple of lingering questions, but overall Emma’s journey is wondrous, intense, and thought provoking. All beautifully brought to life by Thompson and McClaren.
I won’t go further to avoid spoiling anything, but I highly recommend Heart in a Box.
