PSR Book Club: Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer (?!)
For this installment of PSR Book Club, we have a rather intruiging graphic novel by a writer close to home:
Van Jensen was born in Lewellen and attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (where he edited the Daily Nebraskan).
Jensen has written a book with a very strange title: Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer. In this graphic novel, Geppetto has been killed by vampires, and Pinocchio goes out looking for vengeance, using his growing wooden nose as a stake. According to reviewers, the book is "moody and gothic" with "moments of grim humor."
Watch the video trailer here.
Check out an interview with Van Jensen in the Lincoln Journal-Star.
