Review: I was beyond happy to see Marie Lu’s Legend turned into a graphic novel! Legend: The Graphic Novel has all the fun ad excitement and thrills of its book predecessor! What’s even more astounding is that Leigh Dragoon, the adaptor of the Vampire Academy graphic novels, also adapted this one! Though, the illustrator Kaari, didn’t design do the artwork for those, she is still an amazing artist! The drawings are just so perfect! I’m not much of a graphic novel reader, just the occasional one here and there (and it’s usually one based on a book I’ve read! Lol!) but I’ve come to appreciate the drawings these artists do to bring life to characters I’ve only seen in my head while reading! It’s been over a year or so since I binge read the Legend trilogy, so I could only remember bits and pieces of it. But when reading the graphic novel, I was able to recall details fairly well! And I’m even more astonished with how well the story reads after its been transformed from a 300+ page book into a graphic novel of 160 or so pages. And it’s astounding, because the story practically reads the same! We see the same events and moments…and the feels are all still there! It’s incredible!! I love seeing the action scenes play out as well! It’s like watching a movie on the page! Which is funny because that’s how I read as well, like I see a movie in my head! But this time it’s in full color right in front of my face! Even better, when it’s been so long since you’ve read a book, when you go back to re-read it, in a sense, you can once again be surprised by a multitude of happenstances! Granted I could recall a thing or two, but there’s still that magic of seeing it happen all over again! Seeing the characters realize the secrets and such that have been kept from them for so long! Best yet, it does seem like this trilogy might be completed—tears over Vampire Academy stopping at Shadow Kiss, what a world we live in! As the second one is already slated to release next year! So if Prodigy: The Graphic Novel is just around the corner, hopefully that means Champion: The Graphic Novel will follow the year after! This is one read all Legend fans will not want to miss out on! It’s an incredibly fast read, but ultimately amazing! Overall Rating 5/5 stars

Review: It feels like a summary of the original book, it skips A LOT of things from the book. It was nice seeing a visualization but it's not the best and it kept feeling like something's missing. Made me not buy the rest of the graphic novels of this trilogy.

    Description: Buffy Sainte-Marie is an icon and inspiration. This book is necessary | ??an authorized insight into the making of a legend. | ?? Terese Marie Mailhot, author of Heart Berries A powerful, intimate look at the life of a beloved folk icon and activist. Folk hero. Songwriter icon. Living legend. Buffy Sainte-Marie is all of these things and more. In this, Sainte-Marie's first and only authorized biography, music critic Andrea Warner draws from more than sixty hours of exclusive interviews to offer a powerful, intimate look at the life of the beloved artist and everything that she has accomplished in her seventy-seven years (and counting). Since her groundbreaking debut, 1964's It's My Way!, the Cree singer-songwriter has been a trailblazer and a tireless advocate for Indigenous rights and freedoms, an innovative artist, and a disruptor of the status quo. Establishing herself among the ranks of folk greats such as Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, she has released more than twenty albums, survived being blacklisted by two U.S. presidents, and received countless accolades, including the only Academy Award ever to be won by a First Nations artist. But this biography does more than celebrate Sainte-Marie's unparalleled talent as a songwriter and entertainer; packed with insight and knowledge, it offers an unflinchingly honest, heartbreakingly real portrait of the woman herself, including the challenges she experienced on the periphery of showbiz, her healing from the trauma of childhood and intimate partner violence, her commitment to activism, and her leadership in the protest movement.

    Description: Herve Bourhis, creator of The Little Book of Rock, turns his unique graphic talents to the legend of The Beatles, told from the very beginning. Bourhis' visual imagination illuminates the individual lives of each band member from their pre-Beatles youth to what would become a rock band of phenomenal worldwide fame. All of the epic details of their story are vividly evoked: the triumphs, the quarrels, the supreme musical creativity and of course the inevitable break-up. The story then goes on to follow the personal destinies of John, Paul, George and Ringo, four Liverpool lads who were by turns ambitious, clever, facetious, arrogant, down-to-earth and supremely talented. Theirs was the ultimate rock band story and Herve Bourhis has done it - and them - full justice in this superb and exuberant graphic biography.
