Dead High Yearbook

Title: Dead High Yearbook
Author: Ivan Velez
Pub Date: 2007
Genre: Graphic Novel

I found this book while looking for graphic novels for my classroom and my inner goth just squealed in delight.

The first thing that you might notice about this book is it's authenticity. The front cover is hard and squishy - if that makes sense. Also, the author's name is no where to be found on the cover (hmmm...or inside, unless I overlooked it. I had to go on Amazon to find it out).

It opens with a very dead yearbook staff laying out the year's issue. They carry on offhandedly as an introduction to vignettes of death. I admit this part is a bit confusing. Are they introducing people on the staff and how they died? Who knows. There are a total of eleven miniature stories captured within the book and most are all worth it. I mean, you have zombies, vampires, werewolves, even a demonic chihuahua. Plus the graphics are deliciously creepy. Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this one.
