Book review: I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly and Ken Niimura

I have to confess; I cried in the end. I couldn’t help it, my tears just came out. I’m not sure if I was over emotional or did the graphic novel hit the right nerve?

The novel is meant for young adults. It can be naïve with its point, however, that is not a good reason to pass it. I found the story to be substantial, compelling and alive. The characters were well developed from both the writer’s and the artist’s part. Barbara and her associates felt real, making me finish the novel in one sitting. At few places, I had trouble with the pacing of the story and images. After I read the afterwords, I understood why they were made so and accepted the annoying feeling of confusion.

I would like to read more about Barbara and Sophia, but this novel is best left alone as more stories about them would only destroy the integrity of the novel. I Kill Giants was just what I needed. The tone of the book, trip into Barbara’s world and the end catharsis cleaned my mind and gave me the right amount of fantasy to dream.

And no I haven’t seen the movie. I would like to.
