Comic Crossover #4

Hi everyone! Welcome to another Comic Crossover.

What is Comic Crossover you ask?
Comic Crossover is where we take a YA book and compare it to a comic book up close. Comics sometimes get a bad wrap, and so this feature is designed to shine a light on some amazing comic reads.

Sometimes you may not see straight away why I have matched up books and comics the way I have, but rest assured that there is always method to my madness! Sometimes it’s because of the characters alone, the storyline, the genre or another feature about the YA book that I have found that draws parallel to a comic.

For those of you who are new to comics, the titles that I select to talk about are always comics that you can pick straight up off the shelf without knowing anything prior about them and enjoy. So if comics have made you feel overwhelmed or uncomfortable in the past, you don’t need to feel that way about the comics that feature in Comic Crossover.

In all cases, I have read both the YA books and the comics, so if you have any questions you can comment on this post!

This weeks Comic Crossover:
If you enjoyed Just One Day by Gayle Forman, then you might enjoy Superman/Wonder Woman Volume 1: Power Couple

YA Book Breakdown: Awwww this is one of my favourite YA books. Allyson and Willem’s relationship moved me so much, even though it was as the title suggests Just One Day. There was so much depth to the characters and sweet, tender moments between the two of them. This book stayed with me long after I finished it.

Comic Book Breakdown: The tale of a romance that will shake the stars themselves. These two super-beings love each other, but not everyone shares their joy. Some fear it, some test it-and some will try to kill for it. I reviewed this book recently and gushed about how much I love Superman and Wonder Woman as a couple!

Why the comparison? For the romance. And if I am cheeky, there’s a tiny London overlap between the two as well. But mostly the romance. These two stories are worlds apart in terms of plot. But there’s some really sweet moments in them both, and even though in Superman/Wonder Woman they’re superheroes, they love each other just like any other couple. There is aspects of vulnerability in both of these books and real raw moments that we can all relate to. I really love them both.
