Comments for Anya's Ghost
Anya's Ghost: 04/12/14
Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol is a graphic novel about a Russian American girl trying to fit in. Just as Buffy has vampires getting in the way of normalcy, Anya, after surviving the fall down a well, has a ghost to contend with.
In my review of Friends with Boys I mentioned my dissatisfaction over the under-developed ghost girl side plot. Anya's Ghost is essentially that missing plot but done more darkly.
Stylistically Anya's Ghost is the intersection of the Hereville graphic novels by Barry Deutsch and Friends with Boys.
