Drama, de Raina Telgemeier – Scholastic, 2012.

 

Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school’s production of Moon Over Mississippi, she can’t really sing. Instead she’s the set designer for the drama department stage crew, and this year she’s determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget. But how can she, when she doesn’t know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen. And when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier!

J’ai retrouvé avec plaisir le dessin de Raina Telgemeier. L’intrigue est sympathique, les personnages assez attachants, et on suit avec un certain plaisir la création de cette pièce de théâtre.

Publicités

Giant Days #1, de John Allison (texte), Lissa Treiman (dessin), Whitney Cogar (couleurs) – BOOM! Box, 2015.

 

Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of handwringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery-mold, nu-chauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Going off to university is always a time of change and growth, but for Esther, Susan, and Daisy, things are about to get a little weird.

J’ai plus que moyennement apprécié ce comics, que ce soit pour son histoire, son dessin et sa colorisation. Je ne lirai pas les autres volumes.

Sunny Side Up, de Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm – Scholastic, 2015.

Sunny Lewin has been packed off to Florida to live with her grandfather for the summer. At first she thought Florida might be fun — it is the home of Disney World, after all. But the place where Gramps lives is no amusement park. It’s full of . . . old people. Really old people. Luckily, Sunny isn’t the only kid around. She meets Buzz, a boy who is completely obsessed with comic books, and soon they’re having adventures of their own: facing off against golfball-eating alligators, runaway cats, and mysteriously disappearing neighbors. But the question remains — why is Sunny down in Florida in the first place? The answer lies in a family secret that won’t be secret to Sunny much longer. . .

Un roman graphique aux planches pas très agréables à regarder, mais qui porte une histoire forte. Sunny, éloignée par ses parents de son frère qui doit résoudre son problème d’addiction aux drogues, se retrouve quelque temps chez son grand-père, lequel vit dans un petit appartement au sein d’une communauté pour retraités. Au début, les relations ne sont pas toujours évidentes, mais au fil des jours, le lien familial s’installe vraiment. Grâce aux flashbacks, on comprend mieux ce que ressent Sunny depuis longtemps face à la situation de son frère, et vivre ainsi loin de lui va lui permettre de mieux se comprendre, d’accepter et de dire enfin ce qu’elle a sur le coeur. Une histoire touchante qui évoque habilement ce que peut ressentir l’entourage proche d’une personne qui se drogue.

Ghosts, de Raina Telgemeier – Scholastic, 2016.

 

Catrina and her family are moving to the coast of Northern California because her little sister, Maya, is sick. Cat isn’t happy about leaving her friends for Bahía de la Luna, but Maya has cystic fibrosis and will benefit from the cool, salty air that blows in from the sea. As the girls explore their new home, a neighbor lets them in on a secret: There are ghosts in Bahía de la Luna. Maya is determined to meet one, but Cat wants nothing to do with them. As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister’s sake — and her own.

Une histoire vibrante, sincère et honnête, qui parle de la maladie et de la mort, mais pas d’une manière pesante. Ses thèmes sont présents, bien évoqués, mais tout en n’étant jamais les sujets principaux de l’histoire. La mort devient une partie de la vie, et comme un prétexte pour parler de la Fête des morts, Día de los Muertos. Un livre positif et optimiste. Et une fois de plus une très bonne colorisation.

The Nameless City, de Faith Erin Hicks – First Second, 2016.

Built on an ancient mountain pass, the City is forever being invaded by one nation or another, and every new master gives it a new name. But for the natives, their home is the Nameless City, and those who try to name it are forever outsiders. Dreamy, sheltered Kaidu is one such outsider. He’s a Dao born and bred–a son of the latest nation to occupy the Nameless City. Cynical, street-smart Rat is a native, and at first she hates Kai for everything he stands for. But Kai’s love of his new home may be the one thing that can unite these two unlikely friends. And they will need to stand together at all costs…because the fate of the Nameless City rests in their hands.

Je retiendrai l’amitié très forte qui se créée entre Kaidu et Rat, et qui devrait permettre à cette cité sans nom un avenir plus serein. Les personnages sont attachants, on les suit avec plaisir au fil des pages. La colorisation est agréable.

  

Adventure Time : Marceline Gone Adrift, de Meredith Gran (scénario) et Carey Pietsch (dessins) – KaBOOM, 2015.

Marceline is on a rampage for mysterious reasons, and the kingdom of Ooo is desperately scrambling to stop her. In trying to save both Ooo and Marceline herself, Princess Bubblegum accidentally propels Marceline into the farthest reaches of space…and strips her of her powers! Guilt-ridden, Princess Bubblegum sets off on a space rescue that’ll test the power of her mind…as well as the power of friendship.

C’est une histoire d’amitié, entre Marceline et Princess Bubblegum. C’est assez léger à mon goût. J’ai surtout apprécié tourner les pages de ce comics hyper coloré, et j’avais souvent l’impression agréable de tenir des bonbons acidulés entre les mains.

Bone 1 : Out from Boneville, de Jeff Smith – Scholastic, 2005.

bone

After being run out of Boneville, the three Bone cousins – Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, and Smiley Bone – are separated and lost in a vast, uncharted desert. One by one, they find their way into a deep, forested valley filled with wonderful and terrifying creatures. Eventually, the cousins are reunited at a farmstead run by tough Gran’Ma Ben and her spirited granddaughter, Thorn. But little do the Bones know, there are dark forces conspiring against them and their adventures are only just beginning!

Déjà adopté depuis longtemps par mes enfants, il me fallait découvrir l’univers de Bone et de ses amis. Un univers fantasy, un petit côté médiéval sympathique, un personnage tout en rondeur fort attachant, une intrigue qui se met bien en place dès le premier tome (j’aime beaucoup cela !), des dessins et une colorisation agréables, … Je valide ce premier tome, et j’ajoute une nouvelle série dans ma liste !
