GIANTS BEWARE is one of those books you read and think, “this is like an awesome animated movie on paper!”, and you’re glad comics exist so these stories, by these storytellers, can be told. Rafael Rosado and co-writer Jorge Aguirre tell the story of Claudette, who dreams of killing a giant, her brother, who dreams of becoming a chef, and their friend, who aspires to princess-hood, and how they all follow Claudette on a great adventure. It really is like a classic Disney cartoon in so many ways. Charming, funny, creative, dramatic…and superbly drawn. It was interesting to me to combine Pix with Claudette, as they’re of two so clearly different worlds – but they’re both down for adventure just the same.
And there’s a second book, DRAGONS BEWARE, on the way. So, since Pix fights a dragon in her first book, maybe I should think about having her face a giant in book two, just to keep up with Claudette…
