MoCCA Reviews – First Second Books pt. 1 – Deogratias – A Tale of Rwanda

Every once in a while, I’m reminded of why comic books are one of the few mediums that I cherished as a child that I still love with the same fervor today. I stopped playing video games when I was ten, stopped caring about anime when I was sixteen, and only have an occasional interest in television. For me, comics are a unique form of storytelling that allows the reader to rely on his/her own imagination to propel the story and develop character, and that achieves an economy in storytelling (due to its visual elements) that is rare in prose. I forget this too often, especially when most discussions I have about comics are about the minutiae of the lives of super-heroes.
