With no resolution beyond Enn’s nice-guy stroll into the sunset and Vic’s punishment for cliché machismo, the real fun here is in the art: striking linework, breathtaking watercolors, and creative incorporation of text elevate the story considerably.

Synopsis

Neil Gaiman! Fábio Moon! Gabriel Bá!
Two teenage boys are in for a tremendous shock when they crash a party where the girls are far more than they appear!
From Neil Gaiman—one of the most celebrated authors of our time—and award-winning artists Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, this sumptuous graphic novel is not to be missed!
* Moon and Bá adapt the Gaiman story they were born to draw!
“Gaiman, Moon, and Bá have created a triolet of a book, lyrically powerful and utterly unforgettable.”—Junot Díaz
“How can something so strange and so beautiful also be so sad? Like a poem, a pattern, and a people whose world was swallowed by the sea, How To Talk To Girls at Parties is three things at once.” — Kelly Sue DeConnick
“Had sneak peek at How to Talk to Girls at Parties. What boys fear! That girls are very smart aliens who will do frightful things to you in The Upper Room! Teenage angst. Lovely drawing/painting.” —From a Tweet by Margaret Atwood
“A haunting ode to the lyric of girls, who for our protagonists represent a vast, uncharted universe. An extraordinary comic from three extraordinary creators.”—Marjorie Liu
“Gentle, strange, and full of perfectly good advice (‘You just have to talk to them!’), How to Talk to Girls at Parties is wise and odd. Neil Gaiman’s writing is sweetly complemented by Fábio Moon & Gabriel Bá’s art. It’s a quirky delight.”—Audrey Niffenegger
