Lenni Reviews: “Spellbound: A Graphic Memoir” by Bishakh Kumar Som

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

This memoir tells the story of a transgender woman Bishakh, who quits her job to write and create graphic novels. We follow her through her typical day interspersed with flashbacks of her parents and life in college.

I wanted to like this. I wanted to be impressed with Bishakh’s life story, chasing her dream of being a graphic artist and making a living off her art but my ARC copy was so small the font chosen for all the text was PAINFUL to read. Nearly impossible in some parts so I wasn’t able to get the full effect of the story. I may have to revisit this book once I can get my hands on a print copy. I doubt the final product will have that quality.

  1. Man, it sucks that you got a ARC in such an inconvenient format. I’ve read two transgender-themed graphic novels recently, ‘Super Late Bloomer’ and ‘First Year Out.’ ‘Super Late Bloomer’ was okay but ‘First Year Out’ was an absolute stinker, I’m looking for more books that aren’t just about ‘trans issues’ and actually have an interesting story and characters. 😛
