Fiction: Comic Book?

Graphic novel? I’m not sure what the right term is for this, but I’m going to go with comic book since it’s like an issue instead of an entire book.

Whatever it is, I really liked it! What is it, you say?

Chloe Noonan: Monster Hunter, parts 1 and 2 by Marc Ellerby

I don’t have very much to say because they are quite short – only about 15 pages or so apiece (and that’s my only complaint – that I wanted to read an entire graphic novel of Chloe Noonan and her adventures), but they’re very clever and Chloe is sort of an ironic, post-modern monster hunter (Don’t compare her to Buffy – that does not make her happy!) armed with a bus pass and bombs (She just likes them, okay?!), trying to balance her monster hunting duties with school and playing keyboard in a band that, except for Chloe, is unaware of their pretentiousness (their bassist wears an eye patch and they’re called the Freudian Repercussions).

That may be the longest sentence that has ever existed, but don’t let that put you off. I think the only place to get it is from Marc Ellerby’s website. I highly recommend it and am anxiously awaiting more Chloe Noonan!
