Gabrielle Bell, “Lucky”

I’ve found that I like pretty much anything from Drawn and Quarterly. “Lucky” was recommended to me a while ago, and it happened to be on the featured items bookshelf at my local library. It’s a collection of minicomics she did, with a few extra stories thrown in.

THE LOWDOWN
Published: 2006, 112 pp.
Obtained via: Library
Date started: 9.1.07
Date finished: 9.2.07
What I liked: Seeing how her style developed with each progressive issue. The first pieces are very much “what I did today” kinds of stories, and by the end they’re full-fledged narratives.
What I didn’t like: I felt like I was missing a little background information for some reason.
What I learned: The everyday things that go on can make for interesting reading.
