I’ve been reading hybrids for years now: Frankie Pickle, Wimpy Kid, Popularity Papers, you name it, I’ve read or read about it. But this is the first time I’ve really been intrigued by one. The Year of the Beasts, is prose written by Cecil Castellucci and comics written and drawn by Nate Powell. You can read the prose. You can read the comic. You can read them both together. No matter which way you decide to go you’ll find yourself wrapped in a story of sisters, friends, and monsters. Yeah, I’m hooked.
