12 Reasons Why I Love Her by Jamie S. RichRequirements
: CBR reader, 80 Mb Overview
: Gwen and Evan meet at a sold-out premiere of an indie art film. Their romance starts out disastrously, but both feel a spark of something they're unwilling to let go of. So far the synopsis is no different from dozens of other romantic comedies, but instead of following the formula, Rich and Jones tell the story of the romance in 12 out-of-order snapshots. Some focus on the pivotal moments of their relationship—the first date, the first argument—others on the quiet connections that keep them together. The art's bold lines always draw attention to the emotions, setting the characters sometimes in detailed New York scenery, sometimes against stark black and white backgrounds. Some chapters use softer, full-page drawings to stop time entirely and focus on Gwen as seen through Evan's eyes. The nonlinear structure is diverting, but it imposes a sentimental nostalgia onto a story without enough meat to support it. Before the moments of real drama can be fully explored, the story jumps to a completely different time period. This graphic novel is a sweet little nugget of romance, but there isn't quite enough development for it to be satisfying.
A romance novel told in twelve individual vignettes, 12 Reasons Why I Love Her explores the relationship of young couple Gwen and Evan, traversing the ups and downs of their romantic life together. Told out of chronological order, these specific slices of love focus on all the things that make two people care for one another, be it something small like telling a joke or larger aspects of life, like the dreams that drive us or the secrets we keep. When put together, the pieces make a whole in the same way two lovers join as one.
Crafted by Jamie S. Rich & newcomer Joelle Jones, this beautiful and lyrical work is a unique experiment in graphic storytelling, combining the things we see with the words we say to give us a glimpse of everything we feel. Sample pageReviewopbxMore comics from this writerDownload Instructions
