My Thoughts on Tooth and Claw by Joshua Viola, Angie Hodapp & Carrie Vaughn
First of all… this artwork. It is incredible! Each panel looks a bit like an oil paintings because the texture is very soft. The color palette is mainly natural colors with splashes of vibrance.
The storyline was interesting and fast paced. I really loved that the story was carried mainly through the artwork, while the splashes of dialogue here and there supported the story.
The whole book was organized so wonderfully. I loved the way that the panels were broken up on the page in varying formats, and that each border of a panel wasn’t clean cut.
And boy, I am a total sucker for when the artist includes sound bubbles for noises that are incorporated into the panel like this:
The afterward by Carrie Vaughn was also very well written! It’s a short essay about nature and man that makes readers question their own thoughts and feelings about their connection to the wild.
My Final Thoughts on Tooth and Claw
I LOVED everything about this quick read! The artwork was incredible, the storyline was fast paced and intriguing, and I enjoyed the characters. I would have happily read many more pages!
