Graphic Novel Review #2 | Jonesy Vol 1. by Sam Humphries

29058237Don’t get your hopes up, this might be a short one because I honestly don’t have much to say when it comes to this graphic novel. It was just okay. The story was okay, if not a little boring, I was expecting more to be honest when it came to the plot. The synopsis sounded like a lot of fun. A girl who can play cupid? Yes, please. The art style was okay, although I did really like the color scheme, it was really bright and fun.

I really didn’t like Jonesy has a main character, look on the bright side every once in awhile Jonesy! Her personality kind of made me feel shitty because she felt shitty about everything. Sometimes that kind of negative narrative is nice to read but this time it turned out to be a little annoying.

I am curious where the series goes from here, so maybe I’ll pick up the next volume if I ever get around to it? Who knows?

Some things I wish this story had more of:

♡ Jonesy and her dad’s donut shop. I reallllly enjoyed their relationship.

♡ Susan and her girlfriend, SO CUTE.

♡ Jonesy being POSITIVE.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆ | Read: April 4

Synopsis:

A sarcastic teenager with the powers of cupid unleashes her preternatural matchmaking abilities on her school with hilarious and charming results.

Jonesy is a self-described “cool dork” who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows. She has the power to make people fall in love! Anyone. With anything. She’s a cupid in plaid. With a Tumblr. There’s only one catch—it doesn’t work on herself. She’s gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong…
