I’ve recently started reading comic books and graphic novels and I’ve really found myself loving them. They’re great to read in between books or during a reading slump. When I seen the cover for Clockwork City, I was immediately excited. The artwork looked similar to the artwork of my favorite graphic novel series of all time, Saga. I was hoping beyond hope that it was from the same publishing company, Image Comics. And it was! My excitement grew to a whole new level.
Hinges: Clockwork City is about a doll named Orio and her familiar, Bauble. Orio was recently assigned Bauble. Orio wants to blend in but Bauble is a complete trouble maker so chaos ensues.
I loved this graphic novel so much! It was so interesting and fun. The artwork was beautiful. I really liked Orio but Bauble was so awesome! He was so cute and funny. Hinges reminds me of Lilo and Stitch in a way.
The concept is so cool and different. I like that Orio is a doll. It’s just so awesome and interesting.
This isn’t a very large graphic novel, only 112 pages, and it does feel a little too short. There isn’t a lot of dialogue so it’s a really quick read. I wish I could have spent an hour reading this instead of 15 minutes. And I wish I had #2 right away! But that’s just a little thing.
Overall, I loved Hinges: Clockwork City. If you’re looking for a new graphic novel series to fall in love with or you’re just wanting to get into graphic novels and you don’t know where to start, I highly recommend Hinges. I read this in an ebook format and I’ll definitely be getting it in paperback soon.
