So when I found a Nancy Drew graphic novel at Goodwill, I was a little excited. But cautious. Because, really, Nancy books started sucking it up as soon as ghostwriters took over!
(Actually, I have a post lined up about a book by a dude that turned down the opportunity to be a Nancy Drew ghost writer. More on that later.)
This. book. sucked.
The "mystery" is solved when Nancy realizes that her enormous zit is the key. That people aren't always what they seem. Like Nancy isn't a normal, acne-plagued teen. Or that the villain isn't really the wife he's been posing as.
Do you see what is wrong with this here graphic novel? I kindly underlined it with my fine point Sharpie.
Desert. George (who appears to be confirming my childhood suspicion that ze was facing some gender confusion) and Bess ate two deserts. Like the Gobi and Mojave.
I can excuse typos in public. Not everyone is proficient in the English language. Not everyone is proofreading every little thing.
But this is a BOOK. Where someone is PAID to check to the spelling and grammar.
This ads for other graphic novels was the best part of this book.
I'm not even Catholic, and I'm intrigued. Possible Christmas present for Boyfriend?
