I Kill Giants

I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Welcome to Superheroes Annonymous. Barbara, would you like to tell us why you’re here?

I really enjoyed this comic. Barabara isn’t a nice character, she is a loner, outsider, and she is battling personal problems, so she takes this out on everyone around her. Layered over this is the ambiguous threat of Giants who are coming to destroy everything she holds dear.

[Spoiler] I liked the ambiguity of whether the Giants are just a fantasy world and an analogue for the troubles Barbara is battling. We see her face those troubles and grow, and (hopefully) become a better person, if one still dealing with loss. [/spoiler]

This isn’t a story for everyone, but it will pull at the heartstrings if you give it a chance.

  1. Just as an fyi, Every picture on your sidebar is now showing a little thing from photobucket saying 3rd party hosting is over the limit. Not sure if that is just me or if you’ve filled up something or other with them.

    1. Thanks for that!

      I haven’t kept track of what stuff is hosted by what. I’m gradually moving all of my images over to WP. I noticed a lot of dead links to book covers and things when I didn’t host a version myself.
