    One thought on “Queen of the Black Black”

    1. In these early short stories from the 1990s, Megan Kelso explores situations most people are uncomfortable with, taboos most people would rather sweep under the rug Instead of exploiting and scandalizing these situations in predictable ways, however, Kelso looks at them from unconventional and fascinating perspectives Details emerge into the spotlight that usually remain hidden, details that ring true because they remind the reader of essential but long forgotten feelings and experiences.To be s [...]

    2. I liked this a lot than Artichoke Tales Unsurprisingly, the collection is uneven, and I tended to enjoy the realistic stories featuring young adults the most But maybe that s just where I am right now I don t always find Kelso s drawing style aesthetically pleasing, and her early stuff feels especially crowded and hard to follow But I LOVED the spread where a young woman rips her own heart out totally frameable layout, everything And I loved the stories of sexual exploration It s an especially [...]

    3. This is a re release of a collection of Kelso s early stories, in which she admits she is learning how to draw and tell stories, from the last nineties Some of it is from her Girl Hero work, which established her name in the comics world, I guess, and preceded The Squirrel Mother and Artichoke Tales, neither of which I liked much , but I liked this collection actually a little than the the latter two, because of some of the exploration here, the experimentation and fresh points of view, even wh [...]

    4. A collection of early, self published comics by the creater of Girlhero Definitely explorations by someone trying out different styles, but the observations, relationships and scenes drawn in these short stories are sophisticated, perceptive, and have a consistent point of view or outlook that ties them together as the work of a single author She also has a good sense of when to end a story.

    5. Nice collection of different stories, some thought provoking, some funny, some sad All unique, clever, and well drawn Was nice to see some of Kelso s early work and learn about her process and growth as an artist.

    6. Megan Kelso, you are a bonafide weirdo Like, I have no idea where you re coming from in your brain but it is intriguing and sweet.Short clips of your stories, some of the artsy, some of them overly literal, a single, sad Artichoke Tale Something of the quiet harshness of life from a number of different artistic plot angles Keep it up, lady

    7. Great stories of loss, love, and ice hearts I got this for Christmas from a friend, and each story was a treat I think this is out of print, but if you can find a copy, it s well worth reading I like the style as it shifts with each story, and particularly loved the style choices for the female protagonists.

    8. I really like Megan Kelso Some of the stories in this I d read before others I hadn t seen The last story, co authored by her father, view spoiler about a high school couple who experience an unplanned pregnancy, give the child up for adoption, and don t discuss the fact until many years later hide spoiler is a real highlight The art is beautiful and the story is moving and realistic.

    9. I don t know exactly why but I just didn t like this graphic novel short story collection I suppose the stories just didn t resonate with me, i didn t get enough time to know the characters and the artwork didn t make up for it This one is just not for me.

    10. I really enjoyed this collection of short comics Particular favourites were the Married Man strip, the Pianist Breakup and the one where the girl rips her own heart out Didn t really enjoy the one with the Artichoke people, although I understand there s a whole book of them.

    11. Even the early in Kelso s career, her work was filled with promise There s a depth of emotion, as well as some surprisingly subtle effects, to these stories In Pennyroyal Tea, we see the beginning of what would later blossom into Artichoke Tales Good stuff

    12. I came upon this book and with her long history of writing graphics, decided to give it a try enjoyed most pieces very quirkywill investigate of hers for next graphic novel mood
