This week’s Comic Book / Graphic Novel Highlight we bring you My Boyfriend is a Monster Vol 1: Love Him to Pieces by Evonne Tsang, illustrated by Janina Görrissen from Graphics Universe.
Can zombie love really work?
Synopsis: Can love survive the zombie apocalypse? Maybe Dicey’s first chance at a real relationship was dead from the start. She’s the star of her high school baseball team, and Jack’s the star of the science program. Her idea of a study session includes sleeping in the sun, and his idea of a good game involves dungeons and dice. But opposites start attracting when they’re assigned to be partners in a class project. Now an outbreak of a weird infection–it eats your brains and leaves you hungry for more–might not mean just the end of their first date. It might mean the end of everything. Will their relationship fall apart faster than zombies in the Florida sun, or can Dicey and Jack beat the odds and find a happy ending?
Once you get your fill from this quirky fun novel, there is My Boyfriend is a Monster Vol 2: Made For Each Other, written by Paul. D. Storre, illustrated by Eldon Cowgur.
Synopsis: Tom Stone stepped into Seward High and into Maria McBride’s life like a bolt of lightning. He’s the perfect guy for Maria–nice, smart, and well-built. There’s just one problem: his family. Tom’s father is the town’s new funeral director, and business is booming. The bodies are piling up thick and fast in Persephone Falls, Alaska, so Dr. Stone keeps Tom up late at night working in the funeral home. And it’s clear that Dr. Stone and his creepy assistant, Graves, don’t want Maria around. Maria knows Tom was made for her. She’s determined to find out what Dr. Stone has against her. When Tom refuses to stand up to his father, Maria begins to stitch together the clues…and finds out that the Stones are into recycling in ways she never could have imagined.
