Illustrated and adapted by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Bá
Here's an adaptation from the guys who brought you Two Brothers, a highly reviewed book you should definitely get. How to Talk to Girls is also highly reviewed, so I won't gush very long.
While walking down the street, Enn and Vic are invited in to a house party. All of the party-goers are ladies, and all are surreally beautiful. Vic, being the sociable, friendly type, accepts on both of their behaves, which makes Enn increasingly nervous. He's never been that great at talking to girls, but maybe this is the time to practice this. Both teens discover more than they had originally intended.
The art in this is beautiful. Yes, the people look stylized as they are on the cover and it seems strange, but there are so many beautiful pages with tons of color and swirls and I got distracted many times from the story by stopping to stare at a beautiful page (which, admittedly, is a huge part of the graphic novel medium, and if artists can't stop you at least once in a story, then why are they there?)
The grade level for this one varies depending on the institution. There is consumption of alcohol, and two characters do disappear upstairs, but nothing graphic is shown on page.

I've been reading manga and comicbooks for years. Now, I write reviews and other helpful things for School Librarians, teachers, parents, and students.
