Robot 6 with Plums

It's been a while since I wrote a Robot Review that wasn't also a Gorillas Riding Dinosaurs column, but I did this week. GRD is a column about adventure comics and Marjane (Persepolis) Satrapi's Chicken with Plums isn't that. I call it a murder mystery in the review, but it's not a thriller. It's deeper than that. And far more touching.

It does have Azrael in it though and he doesn't whine once about not having Batman's respect.

I am looking forward to reading this. I used Persepholis to teach kids in my English class on the reserve and with all that is happening in Iran these days it would be interesting to see how they are reacting to the events since they do know alot about Iranian society - maybe more than they know about any other society other than their own. We even had email friends from there and I am sure they are also wondering if they are safe. Life immitating art.
