2015 books: Samurai Jack & Love

Samurai Jack Volume 3: Quest For The Broken Blade by Jim Zub (Author), Ethen Beavers (Illustrator), Andy Suriano (Illustrator)
Rating: Liked (Hated-Disliked-Okay-Liked-Loved)
(Book received free for review from IDW Publishing.)

I've missed watching Samurai Jack on TV, so when I was offered this graphic novel to review, I jumped at the chance. I wasn't disappointed, it read just like an episode of the cartoon!

Love Volume 1: The Tiger by Federico Bertolucci
Rating: Loved (Hated-Disliked-Okay-Liked-Loved)
(Book received free for review from Diamond Book Distributors.)

I loved Loved. Another graphic novel, this one about the life of a tiger. Told with no text, panel after panel was wonderfully drawn colored pencil artwork of the tiger's life. Every page was a thing of beauty.

The tiger and other animals weren't anthropomorphized at all, other than rare occasion where an eye looked a little human-ish to better show what was going on in the scene.

(Graphic novels don't count towards my 50 book per year goal, so these two reviews aren't numbered.)
