Been wanting to read a new graphic novel for a while… so finally got my hands on Mooncakes by Wendy Xu & Suzanne Walker. It’s about witches/werewolves living a regular life and battling demons covertly.
Except for the fact that there’s some heartwarming LGBTQ representation in the book (one of the lead protagonist is gender-fluid), it has nothing fresh to offer. I felt like the lead characters were very generic and the story was oh so predictable. Even the dialogues were banal. And the humour very primary school level. Didn’t get any laughs out of me.
Towards the end, I didn’t even want to know what happens in the climax. Since this is a graphic novel, it’s only imperative that one mention how the drawing style was, and I thought they were good, nothing very impressive. Let’s just say book number 66 for the year was blah.
