A great read...a story of a man who has failed in life... and who finds out all his failures have been due to the mischief of his own guardian angel. Hilarious and witty dialogs and cool b/w art...a must read for graphic novel lovers.

Ecuas will be very happy to read this journal entry! He was very worried about the book, but at long last it is here in South Africa! (Not to mention: I am very happy too!)

I just finished a book last night, so I will start this one immediately. So I might even be able to send it on its way tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks so much for sharing, Ecuas!

Journal Entry 10 by Jonniboi from Birmingham, West Midlands United Kingdom on Monday, February 15, 2010
sorry for the low rating, but it looks like graphic novels are not my thing, or maybe the storyline didn't interest me as much as I thought it might, I hope that any more graphic novels I get I will enjoy, I just feel bad that this book didn't do much for me! Will send off to next person in line soon!

Journal Entry 12 by nediamnori87 from St Andrews, Scotland United Kingdom on Saturday, February 20, 2010
Received in a rather battered package, looking forward to reading it soon. Relly like the stamp idea in the front!

Journal Entry 13 by nediamnori87 from St Andrews, Scotland United Kingdom on Monday, February 22, 2010
I did quite enjoy this very surreal graphic novel. I thought that all the panels were incredibly well thought out especially that little bit extra in the background which made me chuckle. The reason it doesn't get 10/10 though is that I found some bits a tad disjointed and quite hard to read. Loved the Tshirts and pop-culture references too.

I've added my stamp to the front thank you for sharing!

Received from nediamnori, have already read will post thoughts soon :)

Journal Entry 16 by Philosoraptor from Frankfurt am Main, Hessen Germany on Saturday, February 27, 2010
Whoops forgot to add thoughts! Well, I really very much enjoyed this GN. On the whole it was refreshingly different, I enjoyed the fact that I wouldn't have picked this off the shelf to read. And it's genuinely chuckle-out-loud funny in parts - mostly because of the little details the artist sneaks into the background and the pop-culture references :) A little cruder in other parts but the sheer farce and climactic disastrous luck of the protagonist, the satirical jab at the shallow entertainment industry and how fantastic the art is, are what make this a memorable read.

Thank you ecuas! Will send this on this week.

The book arrived today - much to my surprise. I tend to forget. I'll start reading it tonight.

Journal Entry 19 by wingbabelfiskwing from Jönköping, Småland Sweden on Saturday, April 17, 2010
A fun and witty book! I especially like Stavros, the guardian (?) angel.


Journal Entry 20 by winghippoleinwing at Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Sunday, June 06, 2010
Sorry about this, seems with all the hazzle about the new site I completely forgot to make a JE when this book arrived.

Now it has been read, have to confess this is not my prefered style of comic, but managed to get through it anyway. It has its comic moments, lots of things happening, and I'm sure lots of people like the style.
Now off to try to figure who gets it next...

Journal Entry 22 by wingAzukiwing at Miami, Florida USA on Saturday, June 19, 2010
Book has arrived!! It's a bit different from my usual style of graphic novels but I look forward to reading it, after I finish the book I'm reading now. I love all the stamps in the inside cover. Now I have to find a good one to put in.

Also, thanks Hippolein for the cute Moomin postcard!!

Journal Entry 23 by wingAzukiwing at Miami, Florida USA on Sunday, July 04, 2010
Hmm... I am not sure how to rate this. The graphic is nicely done with smooth flow from panel to panel, the concept is quite interesting, the ever-changing T Shirt design is genius.

However... it's just not my style of graphic and story. In fact, as I don't find any of the characters likable, I have to read the book in short bursts before it gets obnoxious.

Regardless, I really appreciate ecaus sharing this book, so I can be exposed to different forms of graphic novels, beyond the superheroes and Asian manga.

I will mail this on to the next reader when I get the address. Thanks again for the opportunity to read this book.

ETA 7/18/10: This will be mailed to the next reader next week via surface mail.
