'Stitched #1'by Mariah McCourt with illustrations by Aaron Alexovich is a fun new series with monsters. This group of monster friends would be a great read for younger readers.
Crimson Volania Mulch has woken up in the Cemetery of Assumptions and she doesn't know who she is. She has great wild hair and she seems to be stitched together. A group of local ghosts takes her in, but she is soon rescued by Wisteria Smials, a werewolf. With Wisteria's help, she meets some of the other creatures around her. A a swamp boy, an illusive vampire, and a witch who has trouble with spells.
It's an introduction to a fun group of characters, and an interesting setting. These monsters and situations tend toward the cute and not scary. There are zombies, but they end up getting turned into cute zombie sheep, then zombie bugs. A door turns into a blooming bunch of flowers. I think it would be a perfect graphic novel for younger readers who like monsters without all the scariness associated with them.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Papercutz and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
