I haven’t had the chance to delve much into the realm of the graphic novel. It is something I wasn’t interested in and I had never seen one that grabbed me. I was browsing NetGalley when I saw Z is for Zombie by Adam-Troy Castro and I requested access to the title. I downloaded it, and read it in one sitting. Fell in love with the writing style and illustrations, found out he wrote V is for Vampire, went on a spree to buy them both in hard copy then wrote my review of the book.
In the review I mention having little experience with graphic novels, but that I just wanted to point out that I love this one and I think people who do love them or are interested in zombie culture at all should buy it. I apparently did something wrong in this review, because the author was amused in a not positive way. That is okay with me, I don’t confess to being the queen of all things media, but I wish for two things: that he would have come to me via email instead of poking fun of me openly on the internet, and that he would have left the people that comment on my site completely out of the jest. I want people to feel like they can comment openly here without someone making fun of them and that is what bothers me about this.
I have left a message for the author on the forum that I would be happy to do a take down of the review, but authors, bloggers and publicists what else can I do to pacify an author that I have obviously offended whether meaning to or not?
