Rusty's World

Rusty’s Year in Comics 2015 | August 15, 2015

The-Late-Child-and-Other-Animals-Cover

The last book I’ll be buying from Silver Snail. Sad. (They are open until Sept. 13th, but I have gone down my want list and this was the last one they had in stock.)

This is avery interesting book. It is biographical, so doesn’t always lend itself to a tight plot. In fact, there were times where I felt that she was clearer setting something up, which never materialized. (I mean, honestly, part way through, didn’t this seem like she was going to discover that she as gay? And that she was going to fall for a blonde girl? Nope. She got a french boyfriend instead.)

The section about the dance school, though. Oh my. I thought was going to pass out from holding my breath. And I was SO disappointed in her mother. I suppose the opening with the (awful) court experience was supposed to show why she might act like that but… no. “But soon they forgot.” Chilling.

It looks very ‘European’ and that works for it. Good book.
