That’s Right …. Sespequedalian!

“Don’t go quotin’ Buddhists on me … they were zombies! ZOMBIES!”

REX LIBRIS: THE BOOK OF MONSTERS 

Written and illustrated by James Turner (SLG Publishing) 2009

This may be the most literate graphic novel I have ever read. I was reachin’ for the dictionary every five minutes. But then whaddya expect when the “hero” is “the world’s favorite butt-kickin’, sesquedalian librarian.” That’s right! Sesquedalian! Look it up. I did! Hey, do you know how hard it is to find a rhyming word for “librarian”.  (Appropriately enough, I picked up this book at the local library.)

Wowser! I hope I spelled “literate” wright.)
