Jeffrey J. Manley’s Tour Guide of Joplin, Wyoming
Thereâ€™s not a whole lot to be said for your average graphic novel preview, as itâ€™s only going to be a tiny fraction of the story. This one is about Minerâ€™s girlfriend accepting the wrath of her parents and staying out late with him, Minerâ€™s new haircut and his girlfriendâ€™s reaction to it, and the neighborâ€™s reaction to Minerâ€™s penis. It did look good and Iâ€™m intrigued by the thought of a huge book with these characters, so I guess the preview did a good job. If I can make one request though: PLEASE get an editor for a graphic novel. Have a couple of friends read it or something, just to get rid of the obvious spelling mistakes if nothing else, â€œtruelyâ€. Although I seem to remember him saying that he did that on purpose, Iâ€™m pretty sure most other people donâ€™t get the joke and it just doesnâ€™t look good. Itâ€™s $1 and it has me wondering. And, as the book wonâ€™t come out for another year or so, this might be the only look you get at his stuff for another year.
