Part-Time Grim Reaper. Full-Time Cutie!
Like most university students, Kim works a part-time job to make ends meet. Unlike most university students, Kim’s job is pretty cool: she’s a grim reaper, tasked with guiding souls into the afterlife.
Like most university students, Becka has a super intense crush. Unlike most university students, Becka’s crush is on a beautiful gothic angel that frequents the underworld. Of course, she doesn’t know that.
Unaware of the ghoulish drama she’s about to step into, Becka finally gathers up the courage to ask Kim on a date! But when she falls into a ghostly portal and interrupts Kim at her job, she sets off a chain of events that will pit the two of them against angry cat-dads, vengeful zombies, and perhaps even the underworld itself. But if they work together, they just might make it… and maybe even get a smooch in the bargain.
GIRLS IN LOVE: Becka and Kim may seem like an odd pair, but don’t worry, Becka is goth as hell, too.
RISING STAR CREATOR: Graley also writes and illustrates the autobiography comic Our Super Adventure, the comedy Pizza Witch, and wrote and illustrated the licensed comic Rick and Morty: Lil’ Poopy Superstar. Her middle-grade debut graphic novel, Glitch, will be published by Scholastic’s Graphix imprint.
GALLOWS HUMOR: Finally, a book about the lighter side of being a grim reaper!
I received an e-arc from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I thoroughly enjoyed this. Kim Reaper vol. 1 is super funny, with super cute characters, and great artwork. The story moves pretty fast, so it isn’t boring. The romance feels a little bit like instal-love, but they are still cute together. I really really love the artwork and color schemes. Its a cute, fast read.
