Fangs by Sarah Andersen - Graphic Novel Review

A love story between a vampire and a werewolf by the creator of the enormously popular Sarah's Scribbles comics.

Elsie the vampire is three hundred years old, but in all that time, she has never met her match. This all changes one night in a bar when she meets Jimmy, a charming werewolf with a wry sense of humor and a fondness for running wild during the full moon. Together they enjoy horror films and scary novels, shady strolls, fine dining (though never with garlic), and a genuine fondness for each other’s unusual habits, macabre lifestyles, and monstrous appetites.

First featured as a webcomic series on Tapas, Fangs chronicles the humor, sweetness, and awkwardness of meeting someone perfectly suited to you but also vastly different. Filled with Sarah Andersen’s beautiful gothic illustrations and relatable relationship humor, Fangs has all the makings of a cult classic.

Book Breakdown 

This was really cute! Elsie can't seem to find a boyfriend because she's a vampire and Jimmy is a werewolf that also finds it hard to date because of his own issues. So low and behold, these two find each other and it's so hilariously perfect. 

I love the art, it's dark and gothic and that is right up my alley! Plus, it's a vampire and werewolf romance, so of course, I'd be all over it!

It's not really an A-Z kind of story. It started as a web series, I believe and you can tell, it's more like a bunch of little peaks into their lives and how they work together rather than an actual story. Which I've never experienced before and can say that I enjoyed it. 

I can't wait for more from this author/artist. I hope we get more from these two and their lives. If you need something funny this is for you! It's not scary at all! It has so many hilarious puns and lines that had me laughing out loud so hard my partner kept looking at me strangely. 

It made me smile and brightened my day. I'm so glad I gave it a shot! I really hope you pick it up too, I promise you'll get a good laugh!

I want to thank NetGalley for this title in exchange for an honest review.
