Pix Plus…Barbara Thorson (from I KILL GIANTS)




PIX+I Kill Giants

I KILL GIANTS, by Joe Kelly and J.M. Ken Niimura is a tremendous graphic novel…compelling, intense, dramatic and emotional…and it builds to that, starting as a story about a weird girl, Barbara Thorson, in school obsessed with killing giants, and becoming about facing something metaphorically much bigger. It’s similar in that respect to Todd DeZago and Mike Weiringo’s TELLOS. It’s a different kind of book and character than PIX, but there’s some shared DNA strands there. Barbara talks about giants and a fantasy world no one else sees…Pix talks about being the daughter of the fairy king without any actual proof or evidence…people look a them both a little funny, etc. So here they are, teamed up in a pretty wild action pose, inspired in part by the distinct art of Ken Niimura, who draws in a way that I don’t, but it sure looks awesome.

There’s no website for I KILL GIANTS, per se, but Joe Kelly is part of the Man of Action studios and Ken Niiumura’s online here.
