I Kill Giants

I Kill Giants was a seven issue comic series by Joe Kelly and JM Ken Niimura from 2008 which was recently collected into the handy trade paperback format by Image for only $15.99.

"I kill giants" is the war cry / mantra of Barbara (she's about twelve years old and probably has played too many role playing games), the central character of I Kill Giants. The first impression a reader of I Kill Giants will get is that this book is funny (which it is) and that Barbara is odd. Humor isn't the only thing that writer Joe Kelly wants to leave the reader of I Kill Giants with and it's that other thing that's ultimately going on in this book that will stay with the reader long after they've read I Kill Giants and artist, KM Ken Niimura, is equally at home rendering the funny, the kinetic, and the other things going on here (as anyone who's a long time reader of my blog knows, I don't like to talk about specific story elements, thinking they're better upon self discovery for others thinking of reading the books I flag).
