Have been meaning to get Nimona! How is it??
I have Fables 13 waiting for me -- that'll be next!
Aya: Life in Yop City is waiting for me at the library - I read Aya of Yop City a while back and I'm happy that the series is collected in omnibus form now so I can read the rest.
Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic / Alison Bechdel
Alison Bechdel grew up in the 1970s. Her family lived in a huge home, a home her father was constantly fixing up. Her father was a high school teacher and a funeral home director in a small town, and though Alison didn’t know it, he was gay. Alison herself realized she was a lesbian when she was in college. The book looks at her life while she was growing up, and in particular, her relationship with her often-distant father.
I really enjoyed this. It is a graphic novel and I liked the mostly simple artwork. Many of the literary references were over my head, though (Alison and her father shared a love of reading). The chapters mostly focus on a particular topic, so one would mainly focus on her father’s death, one on growing up around the “fun house” (nickname for the funeral home!), another her father’s restoration projects, etc. So, although it generally went in chronological order, it wasn’t completely. I still thought it flowed well, though.
