review:
Just happened to see this while scrolling through my “to-read” list — and apparently I’m so bad at keeping up my goodreads reviews that I never posted that I did in fact get, read, and love the TAZ graphic novel. (the first TAZ graphic novel, what?!)

It’s a delightful adaptation that keeps the meta-fictional qualities that I love about this show and the personalities of the characters as well, while streamlining what is arguably the roughest and most awkward of the arcs. Carey Pietch’s art is charming and expressive, and her Madame Director is the [static noise] of my heart. The little details from later in the show are a real treat, too. (Miller Enterprises! Brad Bradson! Carey Fangbattle!)

As a mega-fan, it’s strange and somewhat disappointing to run across all the IP-based name changes, but such is life under capitalism.

And honestly, writing this makes me want to read it again (and to finally get around to putting up the B&N special edition poster).
