Dollface Vol. 1- A Mini Rant

DNF

It's 2017 and I'm tired of reading graphic novels that's only purpose is sexualizing women. If your stories only features are big boobs, short skirts, and women having no minds, then you should probably not be a publishing artist. This is not quality content. This is why people stigmatize graphic novels and miss out on great pieces like Saga, Vol. 1 and Descender, Vol. 1: Tin Stars. If your first ten pages consist of sexual innuendo that could be on an episode of Family Guy, then there probably isn't a good joke anywhere to be found. I will not finishing this graphic novel or supporting it. If you want to read about boobs, women who are only meant to be paper dolls on the page, and put into situations that always happen to be sexual, then this may be for you. I personally want a good story with substance, plot, and emotion. Dollface lacks that.

Thank you, Netalley and Diamond Book Distributors, for providing me with a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. 


Are you tired of seeing certain tropes in literature that do nothing to further discussions? Let me know what bugs you down below in the comments!

  1. I saw this one on NG. Sorry to hear it was such a disappointment :-/ I wouldn't like it either if it's just sexualizing women and that's it. Even in my mini review of Morning Glories (another GN, don't know if you've read or heard of it) I complained about how the women were all always wearing short, tight clothes with perfect bodies, even the woman being experimented on in the hospital or whatever -_- So yeah, I understand your frustration.

    1. I haven't heard of Morning Glories, but now that I know that it has a lot of sexualization of women, I'll be steering clear of it. Thanks for letting me know, Kristen!
