My friend Kate at Midnight Book Girl has this feature called Short and Tweet Reviews where she reviews books in 140 characters or less, like a tweet. With this graphic novel, I didn’t have many notes written, so I thought I’d write a Short and Tweet Review for it.
So here’s my Short and Tweet Review for Better Days:
I like the art & love seeing these characters again. Some of the writing was confusing, but that may have been my copy. Want to read more!
My rating for Better Days by Joss Whedon, Brett Matthews, and Will Conrad:
More like 3.5 stars. I’m not sure if the copy I borrowed from the library was missing pages or not, but it was pretty beat up and only had 79 pages, while Goodreads says it has 128 pages. That would explain my confusion.
