      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.

Graphic Novels by Jessie Jacobs

Indie/Alternative/Non-superhero Comics by Jessie Jacobs

Upon walking into The Eliot Bay Book Company in Seattle Washington I immediately went to the graphic novel section for it was more extensive than most book stores I’ve been to. I honestly was looking for one with the most interesting cover. That’s when Crawl space caught my eye.

Crawl Space is about a teenage girl who finds a portal to another dimension in her family washing machine. It is difficult to find graphic novels that are non superhero for adults however all of his graphic novels fit this relatively rare niche. Next I read By This You Shall Know Him.

By This You Shall Know Him stars god like creatures that existed before humans. Each being is a student of the universe learning to create things by re arranging matter and energy. This creation story also features an Adam and Eve story fused with sci fi elements. Unlike the rainbow of colors in Crawl Space this work mostly sticks to cool tones of blue and purple. Lastly I read Safari Honeymoon.

Safari Honeymoon does not have outer space elements like the last two. The style matches the other two novels but instead takes on a monochromatic green color scheme. In this green world two honeymooners take a vacation to a safari of strange creatures (as the title reveals).

 

I would say I would rank these in order

1. Crawl Space

2. Safari Honeymoon

3. By This You Shall Know Him
