and robots to abandon to crabs.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This is one of those graphic novels that are just fun to read. :)

I don't think generally that there was anything special to them, but they were fun. The only one that made any real impression on me in this was the robot's story. It was actually very sad and I was irritated with its callous creator. Typical of the current generations attitude towards others and their feelings. I guess that's why I got irritated.

But this has now become part of a trade. So off it goes! :)

The Big Box of Trade Books arrived safely today; many thanks! I really enjoyed the author's Robot Dreams, and look forward to this one.

Later: Lots of variety here, from wordless short-short tales to more elaborate ones. Among my favorites:

"Alphabet Comic," a slice-of-life in which a cat and a person go about their daily tasks, prepare a meal, etc. - with the gimmick being that each panel represents a different letter of the alphabet, sometimes blatantly and sometimes more subtly. Fun!

"Bee Comic," which is actually an informational strip about bees and beekeeping.

"Paper Dolls" - actual paper dolls of the cat and the human character from the alphabet story - with cute details on the reverse; for example, the cat-doll shows the usual illustration on the front page, but on the back there's a sketch of the cat's skeleton! It'd be invisible if you actually made the paper doll, but I enjoyed seeing it. Same with the human, though instead of a skeleton on the reverse, we can see the sandwich in his stomach and the gears turning in his head.

As a peek into the author/illustrator’s growth, this book is wonderful for Varon’s fans. As someone who has never read any of her other (later) works, meh.

I’m with HI77, the robot one sparked a very negative emotion. The author’s comment before the story said a friend accidentally hurts the other. I get that, but then the friend just walks away while the robot is rusted by the seawater and can’t move and is stuck on the beach and the friend is like ‘oh no!’ then ‘eh, not my problem.’ instead of healing the friend and remedying the problem she caused. >:-(
