This is a tardily posted Sunday morning comic because this particular Sunday has been extremely long and far from amazing (it’s only 2:00 my time!). The rain from last night came into my house and so I have been cleaning that up. The fans are set up and so I stopped to enjoy a long brunch. Happily, the bacon and the books have turned my day around!
These two comics are both fantastic and have rocketed to the top of my must-be-owned Graphic Novels. The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang is a gorgeously illustrated story of the Prince who employs the dressmaker to sew outrageous frocks for him to wear. It is a wonderful story of embracing your own uniqueness.
Brazen or Rebel Ladies who Rocked the World by Penelope Bagieu is a collection of stories about women who broke the mold. Traveling around the world and through centuries of history this book covers women like Nellie Bly, Nazid al-Abid, and the Shaggs. I knew several of the featured women but so many I had not heard of and this book has really inspired me to follow up and learn more about these strong wonderful women.
Just look at these pages!
All in all, this Sunday Comics was wonderfully inspiring. From the Prince who grew to accept himself to the Brazen women themselves these two Graphic Novels really lifted me up, dusted me off and set me back into Sunday with a much more positive mindset. I highly recommend both of these books!
Tell me, please!
Have you read either of these books?
Do you enjoy Graphic Novels?
I love graphic novels. I just finished Persepolis, which I loved, loved, loved. I haven’t read too many graphic novels as I’m pretty new to the genre, but keep thinking how much I’ve been missing out. These look really interesting. Of the two, which one must I absolutely put on my TBR?
Truthfully, The Prince and the Dressmaker is a must read (for me). Great art, beautiful story. I loved Persepolis too! If you liked that you might also really love Nimona. It is my go-to recommendation for graphic novels.
Thank you for the recommendations! Can’t wait to go to the bookstore and get them!!
