I Kill Giants

I Kill Giants
by Joe Kelly and JM Ken Niimura
Image Comics, 2009

Once in a while something exceptional pops up in Central Library’s graphic novel collection. I Kill Giants is the story of an incredibly disturbed schoolgirl who wears bunny ears and prepares for the coming of giants when she’s not being targeted by a particularly loathsome school bully. The monochrome artwork is scratchy and exuberant, with many twists (crucial plot points are withheld by scribbling over the character’s dialogue) and the whole story is an excellent example of something that would be completely ruined by turning it into a dumb movie.

So please don’t! You’ve got Jonah Hex and Scott Pilgrim and The Losers to squeeze money out of… leave this one alone!
