Friday Graphic Novel Double Feature. Akissi by Marguerite Abouet and Mathieu Sapin. Mighty Jack and the Goblin King by Ben Hatke

Akissi: Tales of Mischief

What a joy… what a terror! Akissi is nothing but trouble for her parents’ and her brother. A little girl of about seven-years-old in her West African town, she spends her days running errands for her mother, going to school, and playing with the other kids in the neighborhood.

Over 150 pages of pure mischief, and about 15 pages per story, each one a different slice of young Akissi’s life. From terrorizing her brother to helping him run a theater out of their parents’ living room. Most of the stories end with a great punchline in the last panel.

Highly recommended!

Mighty Jack and the Goblin King

Picking up right where Mighty Jack left off, The Goblin King is an action-packed sequel that only intensifies Jack’s responsibilities to his sister. After Maddy is grabbed by a goblin, Jack and his friend Lilly dive in to the mysterious, magic hole with only their swords and a couple vials of special plant juice to help. They find themselves in a land of interconnected dimensions, all connected by vines.

Chasing the trail of his sister, Jack encounters Giants with only one goal: to eat a human child. Lilly becomes lost and gets help from Goblins, the subservient plodders to the Giants. How will they save themselves and Maddy? How will they reunite? How will they  use a Shelby Cobra to their advantage?

The answers all lie within Hatke’s wonderful fantasy combat-filled graphic novel.

Recommended!
