Tina's Mouth: An Existential Comic Diary - Keshni Kashyap, Mari Araki Quick review: While the content and storyline of this graphic novel was smart, I wasn't impressed with its execution or the artwork. Transitions between sections seemed jumpy, even within chapters, and elements of the storyline that could have been really meaningful were either touched on too briefly or conflicts were resolved too easily. The artwork never grabbed me and was too simple for my liking, and the images that spanned two pages were often gulped up in the middle by the binding so that the center of the picture could not be seen. Hopefully the final version will alleviate some of this problem by being bound in hardcover.
