Bill Cosby is one of those public figures, whose career has brought joy to a lot of people’s lives through the art he made. These days, it’s his crimes in his private life that has become the centerpiece of what people think of.
No one can argue with the importance of Fat Albert, The Cosby Show, and A Different World, which have given the world a more complete picture of Black people. One of the movies that some may consider one of his lesser works, but still is important is Ghost Dad. In it, he plays a widower who dies but haunts his children so they know that they are not alone. In J.Torres and Elbert Or’s modern day family classic, Lola: A Ghost Story we get a related ghost story.
We meet Jesse, a young boy who can see everything supernatural including ghosts. He and his family fly to the Philippines as his Lola (grandmother) has passed and the family is there for her funeral. As he gets reacquainted with his family there, he soon finds out his Lola had the same gift as him. The more time he spends there, the more supernatural creatures present themselves to him. It’s a secret he can’t keep from his family as his cousins start to notice his strange reactions to them. His family’s grieving also becomes overwhelming, as everyone is affected by the loss of his Lola. Each family deals with it in their own way.
Overall, a beautiful and affecting story that illuminates, scares and is full of emotion. The story by Torres is heartfelt, affected, and at times, funny. The art by Or is stunning. Altogether, a story that will make you miss the ones that left you and love the ones who are still here.
