Reviews - What do customers think about My Double-Edged Life (Z Graphic/Tomo V2)?
Good Christian Graphic Novel for Tweens Aug 16, 2008
I ordered TOMO #2 first, because I always start on the second books in the series for some reason.
The storyline was moderately easy to pick up, and the art was fun to look at.
For anyone who's thinking of ordering this series for their eleven-year-old or younger, go right ahead. They'll absolutely love it. However, for those a little older, it might seem a little drab.
Now, I can't speak for the whole series--only this one book. It was cool as I read through it. Hana's Grandpa absolutely loves her, and Tomo's shape-shifting powers are pretty cool. Some kids at school get Hana in trouble for something she didn't do, and she has no idea how to react. She doesn't really do anything, but her Grandfather does console her and keeps her head on straight--looking at the Lord. (That may sound a little Sue-ish, but some cliches actually occur in real life) There was a big action scene at the end that was cool.
Story-wise, though, there was no real plot. It would be better read with all the other books. That bugs me when a single graphic novel doesn't have its singular plot, even when the whole series has a bigger plot. They should be like adventure video games, where you might have to collect three keys to open the door (series plot) but you have to go through three individual (COMPLETE) adventures to get the keys (singular plots).
The artwork was pretty cool, and it'll appease anyone who isn't a plot critic, but I don't like how you're almost blackmailed into buying all the graphic novels.
