were in a city A large shiny vehicle passed by the children, moving under it s own power, like a train One of the children threw a snowball at it In another sphere there was a war going on, something exploded, and he turned away quickly Lovers embraced in strange clean white bedrooms Water gushed from pipes into bathtubs no servants had to carry the water Bodies were stacked naked in mass graves Machines Murder Magic He saw things he had no words for He turned to the lady, who was standing in an empty space looking depressed How do you like it she asked him It s overwhelming, he said What is it The queen s children The future Whenever I open the freezer to get some orange juice or a waffle, I greet her Hi Jane Sometimes I tell her about current events, or the weather Mostly I just like knowing she s there But other people find it strange that there s a cat in my freezer.Someone stood there, all those years ago, with a burnt stick in his or her small hand, and made a picture This may have had to do with their religion, but I imagine that when the artist stood back and looked at the finished drawing, that artist felt the same artists always feel at that moment joy and disappointment It s good, but it isn t as good as the thing we meant to make The thing we cannot quite achieve leads us to make the next thing, and the next after that We make things to find out what they are, what they can be, what they might mean We make things to keep us company in the world We make things to show them to other people, because we want them to understand The thing that makes us want God is the same thing that make us want Art we want meaning We want there to bethan meets the eye Bizarre Romance is a compilation of thirteen quirky stories written and illustrated by wife and

comic romance, was off beat, however, I like books off the beaten path This was just the book for me Thank you Abrams Comic Arts and Net Galley for the opportunity to read and review Bizarre Romance Bizarre Romance includes thirteen stories that were written and illustrated by Audrey Niffenegger and her husband, Eddie Campbell Comics aren t really something that I m always drawn to, but these are not your typical short stories, or your typical comics They re unpredictably odd, perhaps a bit on the eccentric side, and there are some that leave you thinking And there is some incredible comic artwork Topics range from suspicion, to cats, fairies, aging, the topic of comics, and art, love, Bizarre Romance includes thirteen stories that were written and illustrated by Audrey Niffenegger and

a morphing of what appears to be multiple parties love storiesI met him at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston where he worked as a guard I met him in a class I was taking I met him at a school where we both taught I met him at a party we smiled at each other across a crowded room We were introduced to each other by our mutual friend Paula, an Austrian immigrant who had escaped from the Nazis as a young girl RoseRedSnowRidingBeautyShoesHoodSleepingWhiteis the story of a brother and sister who are out shopping for Halloween costumes, and Roselyn declares that she is going as Queen RoseRedSnowRidingBeautyShoesHoodSleepingWhite I really loved the illustrations in all of these stories, but this was one of the better ones for me, and I loved how the story developed, and endedJakob Wywialowski and the Angelsis about a man who has problems with Angels abiding in his atticI felt bad about throwing them out of the attic, but what was I supposed to do One thing leads to another, and before you know it, you ve got seraphim Girl on a RoofA poignant love letter from Nan to Sylvie, who she hasn t heard from since the floods began in New OrleansThe Church of the Funniesis based on a child questions her father about why he doesn t go to church, and he repliesI belong to the Church of the Funnieswhich expands in her mind as she grows up, going from Peanuts characters in the adjacent pew to a church which encompasses comics of every sort, and beyond to encompass all ArtBackwards in Seville was just lovely with beautifully done panels of art, and a strangely sweet story of a middle aged woman who goes on a cruise with her aging father These stories are so varied in their topics, but I really enjoyed all of them, from strange to sweet to funny and back As it says in the Introduction these stories aresometimes romantic, sometimes star crossed, or merely discombobulated, but all are at least a tiny bit bizarre Many thanks, also, to my good goodreads friend, Fran, whose review put this one on my radar Fran s review Date 20 Mar 2018Many thanks for the ARC provided by ABRAMS Books Instagram Twitter FacebookPinterestWhen I m sick, the most comforting things for me are books and tea So I m parked in an armchair right now with a giant fleece blanket, a Big Gulp sized cup of unsweetened iced tea, and a pile of books, trying not to feel so much like poop What better way to do that than to work my way through a bunch of ARCs that aren t coming out until later this month Ha ha cough cough cough cough ha cough ha, suckers cough cough blows nose Instagram Twitter FacebookPinterestWhen I m sick, the most comforting things for me are books and tea So I m parked in an armchair right now with a giant fleece blanket, a Big Gulp sized cup of unsweetened iced tea, and a pile of books, trying not to feel so much like poop What better way to do that than to work my way through a bunch of ARCs that aren t coming out until later this month Ha ha cough cough cough cough ha cough ha, suckers cough cough blows nose I was really excited when I saw BIZARRE ROMANCE pop up on Netgalley because I really enjoyed THE TIME TRAVELER S WIFE, even especially if it was like Dr Who meets TWILIGHT and you might say to yourself, There is no way that premise would work WRONG I was excited to see what new and interesting ideas she would explore using graphic novels as her medium, with the assistance of the talented Eddie Campbell, whose surreal illustrations really complement the bizarre stories.BIZARRE ROMANCE is an anthology like collection, with each chapter being a different story The problem with anthologies is that, unless they are carefully curated, there are always some stories that stand out waythan others and a couple that actually drag the collection down as a whole One of the few anthology collections I have read that was close to perfect was John Scalzi s MINIATURES, and even that one ended on a sour note with a wtf is this finale.Thursdays, Six to Eight p.m Comic format This was easily one of my favorites in the collection I m a huge fan of fairytales and this one has an almost Bluebeard s Castle vibe to it, but there s a surprise twist that s actually quite funny.The Composite Boyfriend Prose format The title illustration was amazing, which sadly only highlighted the mediocrity of the story itself This short story gives off a pretentious, twee vibe that I really did not like.RoseRedSnowRidingBeautyShoesHoodSleepingWhite Comic format Wow, what a mouthful This is a strange, surreal story that is clearly inspired by tales like Alice in Wonderland and Narnia, but the bittersweet ending makes it feeladult.Secret Life, with Cats Prose format Ooh, I did not like this one at all A creepy cat lady story No, thank you Also, this one ties into the romance theme only very peripherally Definitely a detriment to the collection.The Ruin of Grant Lowery Comic format After Thursdays, Six to Eight p.m., this was probably my second favorite in the collection An old school fairy tale, where the fairies are manipulative and sneaky Girl on a Roof Prose format I hate giving this one a one star, because it was the only LGBT story in the mix, but it was so boring, my eyes glazed over Jakob Wywialowski and the Angels Comic format Kind of a surreal story about angels invading somebody s attic I liked it, in spite of its strangeness, although it sticks out because it isn t about romance At the Movies Prose format This one was forgettable but inoffensive.Motion Studies Getting Out of Bed Comic format Cool short story about life drawing and photography The art really makes it work.The Wrong Fairy Prose format One of the better prose stories in here Like The Ruin of Grant Lowery, it s also about making bargains with fairies, but the fairies are nicer in this one Nothing to do with romance, though.Digging up the Cat Comic format Literally what it sounds like A seemingly autobiographical story of the author digging up her dead cat from the front yard of her old house to rebury it in front of her new house.The Church of the Funnies Prose format Bizarre, also seemingly autobiographical story about art as religion Not a fan.Backwards in Seville Comic format One of the sadder stories in the mix, about a woman on a cruise with her elderly father The topic isabout familial love and regret than romance.As you can see, the stories done in comic format tended to be much better than the ones told in prose format, with a handful of exceptions There were also quite a few stories that had little to nothing to do with romance, which made the anthology feel disorganized particularly in the case of Digging Up the Cat and The Church of the Funnies, which took away from the surreal, fairytale like theme.Thanks to Netgalley the publisher for the review copy 2.5 out of 5 stars
