Image Comics releases of a graphic novel that contains many short stories in 24 Panels. Now I like to think back for a moment…. 24 Panels?

I mean is it like they’re calling artists over to put their short comics into one graphic novel, and the title though, does it mean that Image is going through, breaking the laws of comic art? Well, this graphic novel is more likely setting a project for various artists to make a comic and have their work in one book like this. Now that you think about it, I have seen one of those comics around like that, it was the time when I went to Strand books at 14th street, in there it has a library of new and used books for what people can find, most of the people are spending time going around and looking for a good book to buy and read. And when I checked on the comics sections, there are one of those books that clearly looked like this graphic novel. And now, looking at this book, I guess there’s some point to it, and this book is actually about mental disorder because of some tower that got burned in London last year.

The whole book actually portrays the comics from last year which is June 14th where a fire has engulfed on the 24-story Grenfell Tower in West London. Most of the people survived but they had experienced some trauma because of that. Reading this comic almost makes you feel like you’re learning the pain from those people who got hurt, injured, traumatized. It’s almost like you remembered 9/11. It’s kinda sad going through with all of this, but if someone had gone through hell with all of that, they needed some counseling. Anyway, this graphic novel brings a lot of different stories, and with 24 stories it probably relates to the loss of the tower and the people that they love. So, Image had the artists and writers create their comics and to put it in this book, so they can learn that they have hope for themselves and overcome their fears for what happened last year.

So this is an anthology book about overcoming their fears and have some different stories that is related to that, there’s nothing much to say. Some of the comics focuses with a positive sense and hope. It’s like you’re reading a poem about how the air breathes while people are still alive, feel like they’re alive somehow. And for that, this is actually the nicest thing I would ever say about this comic. If you’re in London, homeless and scared for their tragic life last year, pick up this comic and overcome your fears because this comic is going to help you feel better.
