So here's a look at some of the places I want to get lost in; I feel like, if you rolled these all into one, it'd be the perfect quirky vacation...
Check it out, and let me know some of yours in the comments!
. . . as painted by Danica Novgorodoff. I mean, I'm not in search of a ghost bride, so maybe the experience won't be quite the same, but it'd be pretty cool to roam the watercolor countryside all the same.
9. A robot competition
. . . with the folks of Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong. Antics and in-fighting abound, I imagine, plus sweet, sweet battling 'bots — I'm down for some hilarity and hijinks!
8. The Stratford Zoo
. . . for a Midnight Revue. Zoo animals acting out Shakespeare in hilarious and pointed ways, because while the zookeeper's away, the animals will play. Or Play, I guess. ;)
. . . with Delilah Dirk & Mr. Selim at my side! I'm not gonna lie, getting caught up in Delilah's antics would probably give me a heart attack, but I can just picture sitting in the getaway carriage with Selim as we shake our heads in wonder that we ended up...wherever we ended up...
. . . with Aurora West, fighting monsters and being science heroes. SCIENCE. HEROES.
5. Cupcake's Bakeshop
. . . for a quick bite to eat, followed by a night out listening to Eggplant's band. What more could a girl want, other than maybe some of that Turkish Delight recipe Cupcake has been working on?
. . . and do you know how happy it makes me that Graphic Novel Week gives me an excuse to think about visiting the location of one of my favorite books? For those of you who, like me, love Rachel Hartman's Seraphina, and can't get enough of Goredd, you may want to pick up Rachel's graphic novel, Amy Unbounded: Belondweg Blossoming. It's set in the same world, but much earlier, and adds nicely to the sense of the world Rachel has created. Plus it gives me Seraphina feels. Goredd!
3. Victorian England
. . . guided by the hand (and the passion) of Kaoru Mori. Fancy dresses! Class struggle! Up-dos! Illicit romances! Pet squirrels!
2. Castle Waiting
. . . all of it. Just, every nook and cranny! I have never felt like a world is more FOR ME than Linda Medley's Castle Waiting, and I want to know all its secrets, friend all its peoples, no matter how odd (especially the odd ones), and never, ever leave.
1. Everywhere that Zita goes
. . . OBVS.
So which graphic novel/comic/manga worlds do you want to get lost in for a day (a year, a life)?
Let me know in the comments, and definitely let me know if there are some worlds you think I'd happily lose myself in!
