God Save the Queen by Mike Carey and John Bolton


John Bolton is one of my favorite comic book artists, so I was excited to read this. It's a modern story with an interesting update on the realm of faerie. However, even though the main character is a teenaged girl, I felt the subject matter, language, and imagery (though classic Bolton in its dark beauty) wasn't intended for teens at all. A good buy for your adult graphic novel collection, but a NAY for Thumbs Up.

I gave this to several of my students after reading it. I thought the artwork was great. The students loved it overall - but again as literary award material I give it a NAY.
