With 1.5 million copies in print, Raina Telgemeier’s Smile is one of the most successful graphic novels of all time. So, in this episode, I take a look at it and not only give it a good review, but also talk about how a graphic novel that’s meant for middle school girls could possibly relate to me, a 43-year-old guy.
Stella is back and here to talk with me about Nothing Better, the web comic and graphic novel series about freshman year of college by creator Tyler Page. Over the course of our converation, we take a look at the three trade paperback collections he has released and give them our usual fine-toothed-comb review. Plus, we talk a little bit about our own college experiences as well as the series’ themes of friendship, sex, and religion.
