Review: Lola: A Ghost Story

Lola: A Ghost Story

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.

Oni Press Triples The Summer Reading Fun With Three New 2018 Volume Collections

Why double up when you can triple up on your summer reading? Oni Press has announced three new volume collections: Letter 44 Hardcover Book 1, Junior Braves of the Apocalypse Volume 2: Out of the Woods, and BroBots Vol. 3: BroBots and the Shoujo Shenanigans!, to add to your library:

Letter 44 Hardcover Book 1 (July 18) Written by Charles Soule, Illustrations by Alberto Jiménez Alburquerque, Colors by Guy Major and Dan Jackson

This deluxe edition collects the first 2 arcs of the critically-acclaimed and award-winning series in a new oversized format. Packed with extras, behind the scenes bonus material, sketches, concept art and more, this is one collection not to be missed.

Newly-elected president Stephen Blades hoped to tackle the most critical issues facing the nation: war, the economy, and health care. But in a letter penned by the outgoing president, Blades learns the truth that redefines “critical”: seven years ago, NASA discovered alien presence in the asteroid belt, and kept it a secret from the world. A stealth mission crewed by nine astronauts was sent to make contact, and they’re getting close—assuming they survive the long journey to reach their destination. What Blades learns about the aliens, and those sent to find them, will affect his entire presidency.

In 2016, Letter 44 made the Official List for Angoulême and Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque won the Grand Prix at the Palavas Comics Festival.

Junior Braves of the Apocalypse Volume 2: Out of the Woods (August 8) Written by Michael Tanner & Greg Smith, Illustrations by Zach Lehner

In a zombie wasteland of unknown origin, Troop 65 marshals onwards in the hopes of finding their families in Seattle, the nearest logical evacuation location. After a difficult journey by land and river, they make a stop in a suburban town that serves as ground zero of a battle between a corporate office that may have caused the apocalypse, and the survivors staying in the nearby tribal casino.
