Summary!!!

The new Guardians continue their mission to close the twelve portals to Metamoor that threaten their world. When the prediction that they will be betrayed by someone close to them comes to pass, though, can the W.I.T.C.H. girls pull together, or will they come apart at the seams…?

 

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this volume a lot. I really adore the character of Wil. But I loved all the characters to be honest. They are all so different and i love the various powers they all have. I also love the strong focus on friendship and finishing evil. I l think the drawing is the standout in this series. I love all the different locations we see. I also like how the romance in these pieces are not the primary focus yet. It love thee various sides of witches we see the good and the evil and how friendship grounds everything. I also like how the parents have a pretty decent role in the series. I am excited to get to vol 3 :

Book 2:

Spoilers are a foot!!!!!!

 

My Thoughts:

I thought this was a fun read. It’ s set in the 80’s which is when I was a kid and it brought  some nostalgia with the some of the references. It definitely has left me more questions than answers on what the heck is going on. It has time travel, monsters, robots, and possibly aliens. it was fun to see an all girl cast of characters kicking butt. I have herd mixed things about this graphic novel, some people not liking how up in the air everything is , but that just makes want read more to see if the answers will be reveled later. I really enjoyed the story and can’t wait to read the next volumes to see where the girls go next.

Summary!

In this debut, which takes the form of a fictional graphic diary, a 10-year-old girl tries to solve a murder.

Set against the tumultuous political backdrop of late ’60s Chicago, My Favorite Thing Is Monsters is the fictional graphic diary of 10-year-old Karen Reyes, filled with B-movie horror and pulp monster magazines iconography. Karen Reyes tries to solve the murder of her enigmatic upstairs neighbor, Anka Silverberg, a holocaust survivor, while the interconnected stories of those around her unfold. When Karen’s investigation takes us back to Anka’s life in Nazi Germany, the reader discovers how the personal, the political, the past, and the present converge. Full-color illustrations throughout.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed the storyline and the artwork was beautiful. It had a lot of different elements in it. Karen the main character is trying to solve the apparent suicide, which she thinks is a murder, of her upstairs neighbor, who was a holocaust survivor. We see a lot of the neighbor’s back story as Karen tries to figure out how she died. While this is going on she is also dealing with her relationships with her family and friends and figuring out her place in it all.
I will say that it is very dark and has a lot of violence and sexually explicit scenes. It is definitely meant for adults. I really enjoyed it, and I am looking forward to the Second book coming out this year. I gave it fours stars.
