Review: Wet Moon, Volume 1: Feeble Wanderings

Wet Moon, Volume 1: Feeble Wanderings by Ross Campbell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Surreal and lovely. I stumbled onto this graphic novel because the artist did some rebooted versions of Jem on his website, and in looking in his pictures I caught sight of some gorgeous black women he drew, so I had to know who they were. I love this novel’s style, both in art and narration. Slow and quiet, yet strange. Some of the best scenes have no dialogue. Cleo turning in circles when she’s upset. A strangely pierced and deformed goth girl slipping into a lagoon. A guy holding a scythe passing another guy with a squirrel monkey. Why? No reason.

The conversations in this graphic novel does remind me a lot of when I was in college, as well as the loneliness and insecurity portrayed in the different characters. All too familiar. Will definitely get the next book to see what happens next.
