Sequel to Newsprints.
Beautiful, colorful, and expressive artwork is throughout this graphic novel. Endgames have an anti-war message and show that the media can be a powerful tool to say public opinion. Stereotyping and gender roles play an underlying part in this graphic novel. I did have a hard time following the story as it seemed to jump from one scene to another and felt rushed however having not read Newsprints may have been my issue. ( )

A good lesson in communication over violence.

First, every page has beautiful, colorful, and expressive artwork. I love seeing each panel and the movement inside them.

EndGames is a very lengthy anti-war message along with how the media (newspapers in this case) can be a powerful tool (and a quick reference to a trans-person).

This is all great, but since when is stopping a war this easy??? everyone kind of has a change of heart after realizing that war helps no one, so they release previously conquered colonies and the new queen hires Snow, the spy, for her country... okay.. Gender roles are also a subtle part of this story because it's expected that boys/men go fight in the war, boys are the only newsboys, and an important part concerning a certain character.

The relationship between Hector and Leo is really sweet. I'm not sure if it's meant to be strictly friendship or romantic, but it added a nice layer to the story. Sometimes, soldiers are just following orders despite their own beliefs.

Anyway, if there's another book, I'll read it. *virtual thumbs up* ( )
