My Thoughts…

So, I haven’t watched the series yet! I wanted to read the graphic novels first. I do however, plan to start the series soon!

Okay, onto the book! I loved it! It was such a fun story, I did however want to slap some sense into Cyd sometimes and her boyfriend was a dick. I know that these relationships are out there, but it still frustrates me to read about them! But without it where would the story be, amiright?

i dont like it

Anyway, she has a douchebag boyfriend, no self-esteem and a therapist suggesting she makes friends. This all leads to Cyd entering the world of online gaming and from there the story picks up.
The characters she meets within the game are fun and witty and I really enjoyed getting to know them all.

pleases me

If you love gaming, Felicia Day and/or The Guild, I think that this is a perfect GN for you!
I will definitely be investing in the rest of the books!! And of course watching the web series!!

About the Book…

8693600

Internet phenomenon The Guild comes to comics, courtesy of series creator, writer, and star Felicia Day (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog)!
Chronicling the hilarious on- and offline lives of a group of Internet role-playing gamers, the Knights of Good, The Guild has become a cult hit, and is the winner of numerous awards from SXSW, YouTube, Yahoo, and the Streamys.

Now, Day brings the wit and heart of the show to this graphic-novel prequel. In this origin tale of the Knights of Good, we learn about Cyd’s life before joining the guild, how she became Codex, her awful breakup with boyfriend Trevor, and how she began to meet the other players who would eventually become her teammates.
