“Anya's Ghost is a masterpiece, of YA literature and of comics.” ―Neil Gaiman
“Remarkable. . . . With an attitude and aptitude reminiscent of Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis) who likewise conveyed the particulars of an immigrant adolescence, Brosgol has created a smart, funny and compassionate portrait of someone who, for all her sulking and sneering, is the kind of daughter many parents would like to have. And the kind of girl many of us maybe once were.” ―The New York Times

Vera Brosgol's first book is a superbly drawn comic which style's reflect the author's past work in animation. The lines are clean and sharp, the shapes are smooth. The minimalistic use of color adds depth to the heavy line art. While being a story aimed for a younger public, Brosgol succeed to make it easily enjoyable for people past the teen years. I would love to see this book adapted for a short cartoon serie. Despite the expected ending and issues found in any teen stories, Anya's ghost is a greatly enjoyable light read and a nice addition to every comic books collector's library.
I will be eager for more books from this Moscow born artist.
If you have the money and love graphic novels, I think this would be a fine addition to your collection. Use the $20 your parents' gave you for your lunch money this month for this book. You don't need to eat.
