Sara picked this up at the public library when browsing the shelves. Turns out I added it back in January to my To Be Read list as the author was under 30 when she wrote it and that counts for my one remaining challenge [see below].

I actually began reading this because I had just come across a World War I war poem adapted by Greenberg in another graphic novel I am currently reading, Above the Dreamless Dead: World War I in Poetry and Comics. The poem she adapted was Osbert Sitwell’s “Therefore Is the Name of It Called Babel.” She also adapted another poem in the same volume.

I enjoyed the Encyclopedia quite a bit. Not sure why it needed to rip off the Bible so much though. Decent early 21st-century remix of stories.

This is the 75th book in my Goodreads 2015 Challenge which “completes” that one for me.

It also qualifies as an Author under 30 for my 2015 Reading Challenge.

This is the 53rd book in my GN2015
