Kim & Kim #4 Comic Book Review

Kim & Kim #4Erica gives this comic five starsKim & Kim #4 by Magdalene Visaggio
Art: Eva Cabrera

Kim’s mom is like my very favorite person. It was also great to have an adult here as Kim and Kim continue to fuck up. Which I’m okay with.

Sometimes, I just want those girls to win. But they are always back at square zero. Like I want them to maybe get half a bounty. Or get it all and then realize that next month was a thing. Or have them price repairs and realize that was unaffordable.

The grumpy tattooed lady that they first talk to on the planet is also one of my favorites. There are so many great characters and variations on women in this book. It’s the best.

I really hope this book continues on. (Spoilers, it is!) I am not a fan of four issue trades. I get Black Mask is a small publisher, but four issues doesn’t give a team a lot of room to stretch. Or realize that Kim’s asymmetrical haircut constantly changes sides depending which way her face is facing. (Shout-out to my fellow asymmetrical haircut friend Nicole who pointed this out at ladies comic book club. She then wished for this superpower herself.)

I do want more of these ladies. I want more bounty shenanigans. I want more complex parent-child relationships. I want more queerness all the time. Also space. I love things in space.

My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness Manga Review

My Lesbian Experience with LonelinessErica gives this comic five starsMy Lesbian Experience with Loneliness by Nagata Kabi

First, I want to say that as a reviewer, I find it difficult to critically rate someone’s life experience. Most memoirs or autobiographical prose I’ve read either is well-written (or well-drawn) or it’s not. There’s not room for “oh, that action wasn’t believable” or “wow, that character made an out-of-character decision.”

That said, I flipped flopped around a bit on this book if I should’ve given it five or four stars. Obviously, I went with five. Typically, what makes a book go from a four to a five, for me, is an emotional component that speaks to me.

I spend the first chunk of this book utterly identifying with Nagata’s struggles with depression, isolation, anxiety, and loneliness. She portrays the honest reality of what it looks like to struggle. And to fail too.

My internal experiences have never put me where Nagata’s put her, but I couldn’t help but nod my head. I couldn’t help, but tear up at her scenes. Nagata’s vulnerability creates an automatic intimacy with the reader. Even if the book opens with her first escort experience as a flash-forward and hook for the reader. Continue reading
