review Bayou Vol 1

Hen Lily Westland her white playmate is snatched by agents of an evil creature known as Bog Lee's father is accused of kidnapping Lee's only hope is to follow Lily's trail into this fantastic and frightening alternate world Along the way she enlists the help of a benevolent blues singing swamp monster called Bayou. I wanted to like this book so much than I actually did The premise is pretty interesting but this book is filled with the most generic tropes of a post war racist South that it was almost painful to read Within the first few pages we get the standard black child and white child are playmates but they can never truly be friends because they come from completely different worlds device And of course when something happens to the white girl the black girl s father is immediately blamed Despite how realistic such occurrences may have been during the Jim Crow era it just feels hokey and generic here So many other works have already done it so much better It would be one thing if the author were using this setting to as a thoughtful commentary on race but it turns out the racist South is just a pretext for the rest of his story However the above just sets a backdrop for the real appeal of the book a fantasy realm which evinces an amalgam of Alice in Wonderland and Southern Gothic storytelling Unfortunately Volume 1 ends shortly after our protagonist Lee enters the magic bayou in search of her friend This was an odd time to end the story There was no resolution and there wasn t any cliffhanger It just endsright in the middle of the journey We re given a hint as to the struggle between good and evil in this realm but nothing really hooked me in for the next volume The art is impressive but it doesn t make up for an otherwise underwhelming book The Freeze-Frame Revolution playmate is snatched by agents of an evil creature known as Bog Lee's father is accused of kidnapping Lee's only hope is to follow Lily's trail into this fantastic and frightening alternate world Along the way she enlists the help of a benevolent blues singing swamp monster called Bayou.
