This biography was a little bit confusing at times, such as when they randomly started following the history of Wham! or the sudden dream sequences (which I didn't always realize were dream sequences right away. However it wasn't all bad, their were some real insights into writing graphic novels and biographies and how people can feel very connected to their favorite singers. The reader just has to get past the mediocre to get to the really good. ( )

Freddie & Me is an earnest graphic novel about the life of the author, Mike Dawson, and the way the band Queen has influenced his life.

While there's a certain charm to this concept, there are a few times in this book (especially in the beginning) where you just can't help but going "wow... what an asshole". The book's also a bit shorter than you might expect, and in retrospect I feel like this would've been a lot better if there was color, rather than just being black and white.

Fun, but definitely not perfect. ( )

The artwork is well-done and easy-to-read, populated with appealing blobby caricatures. The book is a rambling wander, although an impressive achievement at over 300 pages.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Freddie & Me takes readers on a rock-opera-like journey, from Mike's childhood in the UK, through high school in New Jersey, and into the nineties, when grunge ruled the day and Queen was terminally uncool.
