Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword

Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword by Barry Deutsch

Guys. You've got to read this one.  It's totally awesome.

The tagline is "Yet Another Troll-Fighting 11-Year-Old Orthodox Jewish Girl!"  The book made me laugh and I particularly loved the sibling interactions, being from a big family myself.  It's just darn good storytelling is what it is.  I made Jacob read it.

Jacob says: "It left me wanting to know the rest of the story, which is a compliment!"

Yes, it is the story of how Mirka gets a sword, and I too am curious to see how she'll use it in the future.

You can read the 57 page webcomic here(ville), but I recommend just getting your hands on the book because it is the expanded (139 page) version.

Seriously though. It's in my Top 5 graphic novels. Or among my favorites, anyway. I don't think I could make a top five (or even 10) list.
