Friday Reads: Graphic Novels Edition (11/7/14)

It’s Talia’s first #fridayreads post and she’s reading two very different graphic novels.

From Harvey Pekar’s widow and long-time collaborator, Joyce Brabner introduces readers to a 1980s NYC that is grappling with a new and very scary virus.  And to lighten the mood a bit, Talia is also reading about Pippi Longstocking’s latest shenanigans.

SECOND AVENUE CAPER: WHEN GOODFELLAS, DIVAS, AND DEALERS PLOTTED AGAINST THE PLAGUE by Joyce Brabner

In SECOND AVENUE CAPER, the renowned graphic-book author Joyce Brabner brings to life the true story of a male nurse, a jazz piano player, a drag queen, an actor, an author, and others, who were living in New York City in the early 1980s when they were suddenly affected by a new, mysterious illness. At the center of this emotional, character-driven memoir of the AIDS crisis as it emerged in the city are a small group of friends who gathered at a Second Avenue apartment on the Lower East Side late one night to come up with a new way to respond to the crisis.

PIPPI WON’T GROW UP by Astrid Lindgren

The world’s strongest girl, Pippi Longstocking, is back with a fresh set of funny problems and even funnier solutions. In PIPPI WON’T GROW UP, she takes on school quizzes, refuses to be evicted from her home, and brings Tommy and Annika to visit the island where her father lives.
