Comic Book Review: The Hockey Saint by Howard Shapiro

 I’ve read Shapiro before and I love the recommended listening idea he puts at the beginning of each chapter. (Especially when they include wonderful songs like Gary Jules’s Mad World.)

Though stories like this stress me out. The suspense of real-world type issues is more intense than the suspense of action movies. 

But it was a really good story. I’m not much on sports-related stuff, but I’ll read just about anything in graphic novel form, and this story was well worth it. A little bit about finding yourself. A little bit about redemption. A little bit about the real world. 

Thanks to NetGalley and Animal Media Group for a copy in return for an honest review.
