Kim Reaper Vol. 1: Grim Beginnings (Kim Reaper #1-4) Reviews
Kim Reaper is an adorable graphic novel about a college baker who gets swept up in her crush's drama with her job as a grim reaper. The storyline was interesting, but I did feel there was a certain something missing. Perhaps it went a little too fast for me, or maybe it just went in a strange direction. However, the graphic novel was really easy and quick to read, and for the most part, I did enjoy it - especially the parts where Becka and Kim interact and talk to one another.
All in all, Kim Re ...more
I follow this author on instagram so I knew ahead of time that I'd like the artwork. I wasn't prepared for how much a I absolutely loved this story. Part-time Grim Reaper, f/f relationship and a platonic m/f friendship. So much that I'm here for.
I received an ecopy of this through netgalley; however all opinions are my own.
Too cutesy and squee for me. Becka has a crush on Kim Reaper. She accidentally gets pulled into one of Kim's jobs as a grim reaper while trying to ask Kim out. The rest of book revolves around Kim's reaping job. There's a lot of stream of consciousness story here and no larger plotting going on. It almost feels like a web comic where it's just a couple of jokes and then you return the next day for another dose of the same thing.
Death is cute.
No, not really, but in this case, Kim, who is working part time as a grim reaper for pets, is cute.
And Becka has a crush on her, but thinks that sort of part-time job is weird.
This is a weirdly fun, odd, graphic novel, about what happens when Kim doesn't exactly follow the rules, and keeps getting in more and more trouble.
Come for the cuteness. Stay for the weirdness.
Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review
Maybe that’s ok?
It started out really cute, but the cat-man was…I can’t even.
I couldn’t tell what age it’s intended for. For the silliness factor, it seems like elementary school. But the story itself seems like more early YA.
I like the art.
I like the story.
I like the characters.
But the writing was weird. The pacing was off. It seemed to jump around. Almost like the author wasn’t sure where it was going and kind of wrote it on the fly. It seems like something that might have been se ...more
This is a fun, quite ridiculous story, but I mean that in the best way possible.
I did feel it started a little slow, but picked up quickly; I believe this is because at first, I wasn't sure where the story was going to go or what the point of the opening scene was, because it was just of Becka crushing on Kim, and I hoped the whole book wouldn't be like that, because I found it boring.
Luckily, there is so much sustenance to the book than just crushes. (Not that there is anything wrong with havin ...more

Book #1 finished for #SapphicAThon
This was really funny and a quick read. I really liked the premise and the execution was okay. There's not much depth to the plot or characters but that's okay for such a comic, it promised to be funny and to have a cute and diverse f/f relationship and it definitely delivered on that part.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
Diversity does not equal a good book
I love diversity in comics.
It can enrich a story dramatically and act as a backdrop for enhancing the story. Kim Reaper focuses so much on diversity and representation that the story falls absolutely flat and relies on internet humour that is subpar.
I'm not too fond of Kim. I don't like Becka much either. The plot is centred around internet and humour found in Gravity Falls. I d ...more
