Okay then, graphic novels. So Matthew picked out two of them and finished them before the end of the following day. We went a few days later and he picked out 8 more. He wanted more, but 8 is the limit. So I guess you could say he was blackballed.
I used to be quite an avid collector of comic books, now called graphic novels. The term Graphic Novels is not as "pedestrian" as comic books I suppose.
One of my favorite graphic novels... okay, who am I kidding? One of my favorite comic books is Groo The Wanderer.
Where's Groo (Waldo)
Why is Groo special? He has an IQ of less than 10. His dog is smarter than him. He likes cheese dip. He has good intentions. He always makes the wrong decision. He manages to sink every ship he sets foot on, unless his dog is on board. His luck is such, that if he went to Vegas and played slots, every time he pulled the lever someone else would win the jackpot.
