Graphic Novel Review: Goldie Vance
NUMBER IN SERIES: Vol. 1, issues 1-4
AUTHOR: Hope Larson
ART: Brittney Williams
SERIES START: April 2016
GENRE: Historical Mystery
PREMISE: Got a problem at the Cross Palms Resort? Goldie Vance and her friends can solve the mystery for you!
MY REVIEW: Welcome to the first of hopefully many comic book/manga reviews. I have always read comic books and manga, I've just never really reviewed them on here before. I decided that it was high time I started doing that. So along with a wide variety of books, you're going to get the occasional graphic novel or manga as well.
Goldie Vance is a new all ages comic that started last year and I've been hearing lots of great things about it. Basically Goldie is a kid living in a fancy resort that her father runs and she gets up to all kinds of mischief and adventure. It's sort of a cross between Nancy Drew and Suite Life of Zack and Cody with more diversity then both of those things had. Along with the cuteness is beautiful art that fits the series perfectly.
This particular volume only has issues one through four. So it cuts off a bit and goes into another story arc. If you want to leave it at four issues, you probably can with no problem. But I for one am looking forward to seeing what new adventures Goldie gets up too.
WHO SHOULD READ: Nancy Drew fans, Lumberjanes fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five (for this volume anyway)
