Oct. 9, 2009 at 3:42pm Gear School the graphic novel

Last time Bonnie went shopping at Spy Comics I got the chance to go with her.  We both brought back plenty of comics and graphic novels for the library.  Rich, the comic shop owner, suggested that Bonnie purchase Gear School by Adam Gallardo.  I checked it out as soon as it was ready and loved it!  Futuristic high school, fighting robots, and a war with aliens...

The story focuses on Teresa, a student at the futuristic military academy called “Gear School,” where all of the students are learning how to operate ballistic robot weapons.  Unfortunately, she is best known for her spectacular flameout crashes in the flight simulator.  During her first flight in a real “Gear” an alien spacecraft appears in her airspace.  What’s a girl to do?  Should she defend her classmate and best friend?  And how can she do this?  She can barely pass the simulator test and her robot has no weapons.  The full color graphics and the short length made this book a fun graphic novel to read.  I hope this book becomes a full-fledged series soon.
