Whenever I struggle to find a book to suit my current reading mood, I find that a graphic novel is a fun way to read a great story without a lot of time invested. They are often quick reads with beautiful artwork to please the eyes. Bandette is a confident, witty, female villain always willing to match her rivals on the field of thievery. Her underground network of urchins is there to lend a hand in her latest exploits to thwart the criminal organization FINIS and her arch-rival, the gentlemanly Monsieur. Bandette is everything I've ever wanted in a supervillain!
