Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, July 03, 2018
I got this hardcover from the charity-sale bin in Hannaford supermarket. It's ostensibly a spell-book belonging to Mal, daughter of Maleficent, from the Disney film Descendants. Along the lines of the Runaways graphic novel, this film and sequel are based on the idea that the most famous Disney villains all have offspring who are either trying to carry on their parents' goals or are - in typical teen fashion - rebelling against them.

This book's set up as if it were Malificent's original book, full of clearly-drawn spells and diagrams - but with lots and lots of marginal notations, including diary entries from Mal herself, annotations on the spells, and loads of quips from Mal's friends. Turns the whole thing into a rather lively look at the tribulations of teens who want to have fun, find romance, and hang out with their friends, even though their parents seem bent on stealing all the magic, devouring foes, and spoiling all their fun {wry grin}.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the films, with some entertaining tidbits.]
