A cute story about the robotics club vs the cheerleaders…or maybe it’s about high school politics…actually, no it’s more about two friends getting older…well, it’s also about a young man dealing with his parent’s divorce…
Like any good young adult novel, NCPGW is FULL of lots of little stories and tangents that make it feel more real. This is actually the kind of comic I would be happy to see turn into a series of teenage misadventures. There are a lot of characters and we only get a very brief amount of time with most of them so I would be willing to learn more about them in other comics.
I didn’t feel like this comic broke any new ground though it did have some nice twists in the story. If you enjoy young adult realistic fiction with a good sense of humor (and Faith Erin Hicks adorable manga-inspired artwork) then you will enjoy NCPGW.
