The name's Luna.
24/Los Angeles/wannabe blogger & researcher
Just another freak in the Freak Kingdom.
A place for me to ramble about books I love... also probably the only blog I'll ever have that will keep its theme. I don't want my page to be a mess so I'm only going to shelve books starting with what I've read in the past year.
I'm not always eloquent, and I'm certainly not pretentious. I am just a huge nerd who lurks in used bookstores and likes to read and do research for fun.
[Sorry for this awfully rushed review! I finished this book a couple days ago and never got around to writing anything up, but I wanted to go ahead and get it posted since I'm busy with school and other booklikes things. Hopefully it's at least marginally helpful to those deciding whether or not to read the series.]
I loved it! I feel like seeing the movie first actually really helped my enjoyment of the comic, though it might not have if I had seen it recently. (Michael Cera was perfectly cast for Scott.) It's nice to see... hmm... quirky/kind of awkward kids, I guess, represented properly. Like, the dialogue in the comics is pretty realistic, it's how someone like that would actually talk, but it's also still witty. Scott and his friends seem like people I'd hang out with.
I think the art style is really original. It's cute and quirky but quite detailed- the art really puts you there.
I'm not sure if all this counts as spoiler or not, but I'm going to hide it just in case. I know that personally I like to go into a book knowing only the bare minimum that I need to know. I like things to take me by surprise.
I'm really excited about continuing the series- I already feel like I'm pals with the characters. It's a fun, quick read and the art is awesome.
