I Did It, I Read My First Graphic Novel

I put it off for a long time
I wanted to be mature
Old enough to appreciate it
I'm so glad I waited
The Advance Team
Written by Will Pfeifer
Illustrated by German Torres

Graphic Novels are fast
No time is wasted with laborious reading
Just the bubbles mam, Just the bubbles
The reader has to create, much
The emotional content of the characters
Their intellectual head space
If there is to be, much
The reader has to provide it
Surmising, much, from the graphics and bubbles
This can be enjoyable
Or you can leave it be
Read from, The Shallows, as it were

About the book
I enjoyed the story
I'm a sucker for pizza delivery guys
Hiro Protagonist (The Deliverator) in Snow Crash
Hiro will always be number one on my list, always
Zac is constantly getting stiffed for tips
Chump Change is his daily bread
Thank God Vic, the counter girl, is aggressive
Zac would never have gotten anywhere alone
Vic is a lofty goal for poor tongue tied Zac
Vic had to take initiative again and again
I liked the girl
The world needs more Vics
The world needed saving
Zac, got the job

Music for the modern world
Drive-By Truckers
Ugly Buildings, Whores and Politicians:  
Greatest Hits 1998-2009
