Nce that I Kill Giants is as short as it is for the book certainly bears a second reading as many things previously hidden are unveiled only with knowledge gained in the book s climax What an emotional roller coaster And the first graphic novel to make me cryI Kill Giants follows a segment of the life of Barbara Thorsen arguably the greatest giant slayer of all time in her uest to defend the world from giants and maybe defend herself from some giants and ghouls of her ownProbably my favorite graphic novel the story opens on the surface with a young angsty girl trying to follow her passion of bringing down titans and giants However as the story progresses we find that Barbara and her family are dealing with extra issues out of their control and that Barbara personally chooses not to tackle The art of it all was beautifully done in what I would call an aesthetically pleasing grunge styleAs a teacher I cannot stress the need for students struggling with great life altering events to find closure and acceptance in healthy ways The graphic novel portrays a youth dealing with a hardship in her life the only way she knew how with her imagination and readers will find her coping mechanisms both dark and enthrallingJohnathan Kristin Content warningsAbelist slursLesbian slursBullyingViolent responsesreactions to non violent situationsBarbara is a character that I continuously had to remind myself to not udge too harshly I figured there had to be an explanation And there isI m Investigating the Supernatural just not sure it s enough She s not nice she s abusive and mean and there s nothing in these pages that excuses that behavior though many people make excuses for her behavior However there are reasons for her actions too It doesn t make them right but she s an 11 or so year old child and even adults don t always react in the best possible way to difficult circumstancesThe author took an interesting angle of not allowing us to know what exactly is going on with Barbara and not letting us find out until nearly the very end I went into this book expecting a good fantasy slaying giant killing story And that s what I got but on a different level We each of us have giants to slay things to overcome and I think children have some of the most difficult ones as they learn how to navigate all the different and sometimes painful realities of lifeSo while I absolutely detested some or a lot of the things that Barbara did it s hard toudge her Because I understand too She takes her pain and anger out on those around her not always ustly not fairly but it s an emotional reaction that she can t uite control yetIf I could have wished for one thing it would have been her getting called on the behavior a bit The story dealt with getting her to deal with the underlying issue and that s definitely needed but I think that if we don t check ourselves when we re in pain and angry care and empathy can get away from us and it s a good lesson for kids that might be reading this to learnAs I tell my son nothing excuses violence and believe me it s a fine line to walk teaching no violence and the right to defend yourself That s something I would have appreciated seeing reinforced here When I started this in the first dozen or so pages I was going to pass it on to my daughters to read Now I think I m going to pass Because no matter how much I can understand Barbara s pain I can t excuse her violent responses to non violent circumstances or hurtful language especially in a time when such things are so prevalent as it isThere were a couple of things beyond the violence that I mentioned above that really bothered me here 1 the comment from Barbara to her PE teacher calling the teacher a bull dyke this book would have been much highly rated But that s a line I wasn t comfortable with especially when it was never ever addressed or recriminated Honestly the I think about it the madder I get 2 fat girl bully 3 I m not like other girls other girls are stupid 4 the boygirl interests divide can we ust have a book that shows it s okay to like whatever one wants to like and not disparage others for liking other things UghThe I write my review the I dislike what I ve read And that s ust the story I also didn t find the art particularly engaging most of the time I had a hard time figuring out what was going on I think that s a stylistic choice to fit with the fantasyreality divide that we re straddling but it didn t work for meThis review is also available at The Book Eaters This really grew on me It had to I started the book frustrated with Barbara with her disconnect from the real world and total immersion in a fantasy world she s created with her near inability to interact with the people around her That s a bold thing that Kelly did to start the reader off with an entirely outside perspective of Barbara and only slowly reveal exactly what is going on inside her heart and mind and what "events in her life have caused her to react in this way view spoilerHer mother is dying of cancer and "in her life have caused her to react in this way view spoilerHer mother is dying of cancer and refuses to accept that Her

Et frais et surprenant commencer par le personnage de Barbara particulirement attachant et turbulent La fillette n’a pas sa langue dans sa poche et c I Kill Giants La critiue du comics Unification France I Kill Giants un bijou entre ustesse et motions I KILL GIANTS Sortez les grands mouchoirs AvisGeekcom Saluts Avigeekers hier soir ’ai vu le film I KILL GIANTS a faisait un moment ue e voulais le voir Brainteaser Physics j’avais vu l’affiche avant sa sortie sur pas mal de sites de geeks oui des concurrents et elle me donnait bien envieIl tait mentionn par les producteurs de Harry Potter et mme sie ne suis pas spcialement un gros fanboy de la saga du sorcier lunettes rondes I Kill Giants Wikipedia I Kill Giants is an American comic book limited series published by Image Comics beginning in The comic was created by writer Joe Kelly and artist J M Ken Niimura and features Barbara Thorson a girl struggling with life by escaping into a fantasy life of magic and monster. .

Trauma that frightens her I also loved the mythical references to giants and fairies in this comic even though they are not too major to the story as they added a fantasy atmosphere to the storyJM Ken Niimura s artwork JM Ken Niimura s artwork is truly creative and uniue to look at even though there were times where the artwork was a bit scratchy and it was a bit difficult to see what the characters were actually doing in the panels However I really loved the way that the characters look slightly cartoonish as it lessens the dark atmosphere of the story a bit I also loved the black and white colorings of this comic as it really brought in a serious tone to the story What made me feel uncomfortable about this story For anyone who does not like language in comics this comic does have a bit of language in it although it is not as strong as some of the mature comics Also this comic is a bit dark especially with the scenes of Barbara trying to deal with her personal problems Final Thoughts Overall I Kill Giants is definitely one comic book that really surprised me When I looked at the title I actually thought that this book was going to be a blood fest of the main character slaying giants but read this comic and the story is much deeper than that and that is what I really loved about this comic I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this comic book to absolutely anyoneReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog Bridge to Terabithia A Monster Calls All things that live die This is why you must find oy in the living while the time is yours and not fear the end To deny this is to deny life To fear this is to fear life But to embrace this Can you embrace thisYou are stronger than you think It s good to pick a book with vaulted expectations set the book down finished an hour and a half later and have those expectations met In I Kill Giants earliest chapters I was not at all sure this would be the case The pace felt abrupt the characterizations suffered some adjacency to verisimilitude and the ground seemed well worn and overly familiar as it hadn t been long since I had the pleasure of reading Nate Powell s Swallow Me Whole Of course by book s end all that had been well enough The Phenomena and Diosemeia of Aratus justified by Kelly and Niimura s wonderful story telling I Kill Giants exploits expectations in order to tell a story that while common is made special by its telling The creative team breathes a crisp newness into Barbara Thorson s imaginative life that many such tales lack and in their lack become shallow caricatures that never come to life for the reader Traveling with Barbara through the travails of her fifth grader s existence we are given a uniue vantage into the lives and motivations of much of her supporting cast There are still clich s that never entirely extricate themselves from the narrative weight crushing any spark of life from their shell of an existencefor instance the bully Taylor who isust like every other storybook bully you ve ever encountered but for the most part Kelly s script is a reliefAccordingly Niimura s visual work shows its excellence by nature of considering ust how easy it would have been to really screw up the story by producing the wrong kind of art When Niimura draws giants they are impressive When Niimura draws Barbara the giant slayer she is awkwardly confident When Niimura draws the intersection of worlds we find ourselves charmed or "Horrified According How Niimura Wants Us To Feel The "according how Niimura wants us to feel The curiosity that took me out of the story and forced me to wonder at his visual choices was his depiction of Taylor the bully yes her again despite the character s solidly established age she s a fifth grader Niimura draws her as being well enough into puberty that she s granted heftily developed breasts While it s not outside the realm of possibility for such a girl to exist apparently puberty is hitting girls earlier and earlier it s far enough outside the norm that it may give readers such as myself pauseIn any case I Kill Giants is the story of Barbara Thorson Who kills giants Or so she tells ust about everyoneBarbara is sigh precocious and outspoken She s a bit geek loves DD and baseball history and has a difficult homelife Her interaction with her teachers and school psychologist as a result of her interaction with teachers is less than worthy of emulation She seems to almost purposely make enemies with those around her And yet despite the difficulties she presents for herself and the reader who wants to sympathize she cuts figure as an able protagonist She s far from perfect and for this story at least we prefer her for itAmidst portents of the arrival of a grave doom the heralding of a coming giant Barbara has to negotiate a society with which she will have nothing to do Against her wishes the society around her makes many overtures of peace and goodwill Some make ground while others break it And all the while the unseen world becomes increasingly active as the prophesied doom grows "EVER NEARER IN THE END IT S IN BARBARA "nearer In the end it s in Barbara interactions with both worlds and their inevitable clash that I Kill Giants story takes shapeAnd it was wonderful to take inAs a final note it is a happy circumsta.

I m not crying you re crying shut up I got the same feeling with this book that I did with A Monster Calls it was good but not greatIt is the story of a girl named Barbara who thinks she fights giants the giants being a metaphor for something else of course Her big sister is taking care of her and her brother but Barbara does not have the best relationship with them as of late Something has happened that has distanced them It is a very well drawn piece of work all in black and white It might have been much better with coloured pages but it was not too much missed I disliked the main character and the reasons I disliked her where the same reasons that I understood her actions because that made what was happening seem all the real That is the trait of a good unlikable character I am glad they got it right If you liked A Monster Calls you will like this and vice verso or you will be bored of reading the same thing Reminded me of A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness They both have a lot of things in common bullies nerdy kid giant monster sick mother stupid friend wild imaginations depressing story etcActual rating 325 stars SPOILERSBarbara is a pretty headstrong young high school girl who loves Dungeons and Dragons dislikes school isn t interested in friends or other people and is obsessed with giants accurately killing giants But in our everyday world is Barbaraust a weird kid because we all know giants aren t real Aren t theyThe most important thing potential readers to this book should understand that it s not a fantasy book though it contains fantasy elements and is set in our world the real world and that it s far deeper than you d expect from the manga artwork macho title and emo kid main character In fact replace giant with cancer and you ve basically got itI had such a strong emotional reaction to this book partly because I knew nothing about it and it unexpectedly caught me off balance but also because I identified so strongly with Barbara When I was 1213 my mum was diagnosed with cancer too and that age is already such a turbulent one that throwing into the mix the hitherto unthinkable possibility of losing your mum suddenly becoming an all too real inevitability is really hard to deal with And like Barbara I was also getting my ass kicked on a regular basis by a bully and I found solace not in DD but in a similar board game called Warhammer all of which changed within a couple of years for the betterWriter Joe Kelly and artist JM Ken Nimura bring pathos and heart in portraying Barbara s battle against her own demons through some pretty intense fantasy seuences with the titular giants and by the penultimate chapter when Barbara faces down the Titan I was bawling my eyes out This comic book has bags of heart and soul in its pages I can t believe it took me this long to pick it upKelly and Nimura tell a difficult story well through an ingenious metaphor of fantasy and the really likeable character of Barbara Through her inspiring courage and defiance in the face of the void she provides an admirable role model for teens going through parental loss and give them hope for a lighter future The book goes beyond entertainment and art to illustrate raw human emotion vividly and memorably on the "page I Kill Giants is an unforgettable masterpiece that ll touch your spirit and deserves to transcend "I Kill Giants is an

Invincible Chew and I have been enjoying every one of them Now I had stumbled upon this uniue little comic called I Kill Giants which is written by Joe Kelly along with artwork by JM Ken Niimura and it was seriously one of the most creative and intense comics I had ever read What is this story about Barbara Thorson was ust your average fifth grade studentalright maybe not so average student Barbara s big secret is that she kills giants for a living using her trusty hammer Coveleski Unfortunately everyone at school thinks that she is a freak and she seems to have so many personal problems at home Can Barbara overcome her biggest fear that will allow her to get through life What I loved about this story Joe Kelly s writing Wow I was ust so blown away by Joe Kelly s emotional yet exciting writing Honestly this was the first time I had read any of Joe Kelly s works and after reading this comic I am definitely looking forward to reading of his works Joe Kelly has done a brilliant ob at tying in Barbara s personal problems with her obsessions with giants as it really brought a true depth to the story I really wish I could tell you about what Barbara s personal problems are but that "would pretty much give away the entire plot of this comic but I will say that you will start tearing up "pretty much give away the entire plot of this comic but I will say that
