In Taproot, a ghost must decide if his existence is worth giving up to save the human he loves. In Ninety-Nine Righteous Men, two priests try to help a friend who’s been possessed while dealing with their own complicated history. In The Little Red Wolf, a little wolf strays from the path and finds out first hand why he was warned to stay away from the humans. Enjoy my mini reviews for these three graphic novels!
This was a cute little paranormal LGBT graphic novel with POC characters about (as the tagline says) a gardener and a ghost. It wasn't that long, and a lot of pages didn't have that much going on, so there wasn't much chance for a lot of story depth or character development, but I still thought the romance was sweet, and I still said awwww a couple times. And it's an entirely clean romance, perfectly appropriate for younger readers even though the characters seemed to be in their late teens/early twenties. There was also a lot of pretty plant life in the artwork. And I appreciated that, physically speaking, the characters were just like normal, real kinda people, not too stereotypically "perfect" looking, if that makes any sense. If you want something quick and light with a cute romance, I think you'll enjoy this.

I'm not quite sure what to call this since I saw it listed as a graphic novel, but it actually seemed more like a picture book, except it seemed kind of dark for children. Then again, I know nothing about children, so don't take my word on that. It did have a clear message in it about how there are two sides to every story, plus some other lessons if you want to look even deeper. Also, although there was a small story, the art seemed to be the focus. It looked kind of like watercolor (I'm not sure that it was, but that's the best comparison I can make with my limited knowledge of artistic mediums), and it was very fantastical and creepy, definitely matching the dark vibe of the story. But regardless of how this book would be classified, I couldn't resist trying this little twist on Little Red Riding Hood, and seeing a little girl depicted as the villain only added to the creepiness. The little wolf was adorable though, and I felt bad for the poor, little thing. I would say you might enjoy this if you like dark fairy tales and fantastical, creepy, watercolor-esque art.
