Review: Finding Molly

cats

I have a certain fondness for comics—both traditional superheroes as well as graphic novels. Those with any affinity for the format knows that there is so much more to it than mere ka-pow, action, and fisticuffs. There is an art to the pacing—to telling the story in frames and boxes instead of paragraphs. Finding Molly: An Adventure in Catsitting does the job superbly well. I especially appreciated the art style which didn’t feel the need to give everybody six-pack abs and one-size fits all CW body types. There’s also a sense of continuity through the panels as the number of bandaids from kitty scratches accumulates and the MCs relationships develop. The content is certainly relatable and has a great YA feel (although, again, not the CW kind churned out by every media company expecting that everyone is involved in some sort of complicated multi-directional love tryst,) and the relationships are both realistic and also engaging. Molly struggles with all the trials and insecurities that any young adult does and she has a sense of character that makes you want to root for her as sort of an Everyman. I don’t have any qualms about recommending this one (even if I’m not typically the guy who pushes “cat stories.”) I’m not even a cat person, but I’m telling you to pick this one up.
