First up, thanks to my boyfriend for gifting me this book for Christmas! I am so happy that I now finally have the chance to read this book. Secondly, I thought this would be comics/comic bundle with all/selected comics, but instead it is a mix-up of stories about James’s life and comics.
We read about his school life, about his family (I had such a laugh when a teacher mistook him and his twin sister as boyfriend and girlfriend, really, how?), about his art, about dreams, about popularity, about bugs (I still stand that bugs are creepy and butterflies are cute, no matter what he says), and tons more. We really get to know the artist (and I finally found out about who his artist name is Theodd1sout, I was already wondering about it). I had such a good time reading this, laughing so many times, and also dragging my fiance in laughing as I read some parts aloud. And I am betting (on those last Christmas chocolates) that he will also be reading this book when he has the chance).
I already knew I would love the humour, but sometimes the humour works better in comics, but I can honestly say that this guy can write stories as well as he can do comics. He really pulls you into his stories, into his life. I know I couldn’t stop reading so whenever I had time yesterday, I read, read and read some more.
Now I am just hoping that he will write more books or makes a book with all his comics. Either would be perfect. \o/ Oh, and I would recommend this book to all who want to know more about this artist or are fans of him (like me!).
