I read Bandette Volume One: Presto! this weekend, and I had to write a blog post to recommend this gem of a graphic novel.
1. I loved all the characters! The title character Bandette is a feisty thief who has been compared to both Nancy Drew and Robin Hood. Like Robin Hood, she steals from the rich and redistributes to those who deserve it. Like Nancy Drew, she appears to be part detective. Neither Nancy Drew nor Robin Hood work alone. Bandette has a band of urchins who help her. Not sea urchins! But the other use of the word urchin!
