I’ve just finished a graphic novel that left me smiling the entire time that I read it! Check Please! by Ngozi Ukazu is a delightful story about Bittle, a short, figure skating, baking, gay guy who plays hockey and gets accepted on the Samwell college hockey team.
Each “chapter” begins with a scene/explanation from Bittle’s vlog and transitions into the actual story. This story has a tasteful sense of humor in a way that was both evident in dialogue and the clever way the panels transitioned and cut off. All of the characters have layers (not easy to do in a graphic novel) and are incredibly charming while staying realistic.
Seriously- laugh out loud funny. The next installment doesn’t come out until April 2020 and I CANNOT WAIT!
