Kim Reaper Vol. 1: Grim Beginnings Reviews

  • Danika at The Lesbrary

    This was so goddamn cute I can't even handle it. I was giggling to myself while reading it. I couldn't get over how cute Becka is. The little hair buns! Her little tummy!! Honestly, seeing that she had a little tummy outline all the time gave me life. Plus this funny and goofy and has a cute little romance. Definitely lives up to the premise.

    I am not a graphic novel type of girl, but oh boy!, this was so good. Cute, funny and exciting. I enjoyed the introduction of characters that were not heterosexual, and the overall premise of Kim having a part time job as a grim reaper. Can't wait to read the next one when it comes out!

    Special thanks to the publisher and author for providing me with an advanced reader copy of this book through NetGalley. Please consider me in the future for any works published by this author.

    My review is fair and honest, and in no way is a reflection of the fact that I received this book at not cost to myself. My review is based on immediate feelings after completing this book, and is not meant to be in comparison to other books I have read.

    combines the first four issues of this fun new series. Becka and Kim are both studying fine arts at university but Becka’s crush on Kim, which consists of staring dreamily at the back of her head in class, is the sum total of their interaction. Becka’s friend Tyler finally convinces her to ask Kim out so after class she follows Kim, who disappears into a portal in the corridor.

    combines the first four issues of this fun new series. Becka and Kim are both studying fine arts at university but Becka’s crush on Kim, which consists of staring dreamily at the back of her head in class, is the sum total of their interaction. Becka’s friend Tyler finally convinces her to ask Kim out so after class she follows Kim, who disappears into a portal in the corridor.

    Naturally this is a job for social media so Becka gets ready to capture this moment for internet posterity but then her phone and Becka both get sucked into the portal. It turns out that Becka’s crush has a part time job to help pay her way through uni and to fund her expensive goth clothes. Kim is … 🥁 … a reaper … of animals because she hasn’t been promoted to reaping people yet. 😊

    What follows is a process of the two girls getting to know each other, visiting each other’s favourites places and a few other fairly typical getting to know you scenarios, like encountering a cat hoarding gym junkie energy drink addict hulk, zombies 🧟‍♀️ 🧟‍♂️, bed cookies, ghouls, and going to hell via the employee’s entrance.

    I wasn’t quite sure what I expected from this collection. I was sucked in purely based on the wonderful cover image and its implied promise of purple tones throughout. I got the purples I was looking for along with a beautiful soft colour scheme. All of the illustrations were really sweet and I was impressed that both girls actually had curves.

    The stories were interesting and the budding relationship between Becka and Kim was cute, with arguments along the way before their first kiss. Aww! 😘 While the language used came across as a bit too young for the characters, I was entertained for the entire ride. The strange occurrences in the stories took me deeper into this world instead of the jarring effect I sometimes experience. I had no problem believing anything was possible in this world and I look forward to finding out what’s next for this cute new couple.

    Thank you so much to NetGalley and Oni Press for the opportunity to read this graphic novel.

    is a positively adorable story about two college girls falling in love and fighting baddies! Becka is an innocent baker looking for a fun date with her crush, only to find out that her crush, Kim, is a part-time grim reaper! Antics ensue, and the entire ordeal is precious, hilarious, fun, and diverse! While the writing was cheesy and young at points, I had so much fun reading

    and would totally pick up the next volume.

    This was a really awesome and sweet graphic novel that I'm curious to see where it goes, though the writing did get a bit annoying at times. Just the way the characters spoke made me groan, but apart from that, it was pretty unique and sweet.

    Book #1 finished for #SapphicAThon

    This was really funny and a quick read. I really liked the premise and the execution was okay. There's not much depth to the plot or characters but that's okay for such a comic, it promised to be funny and to have a cute and diverse f/f relationship and it definitely delivered on that part.

  • Laura

    is an adorable graphic novel about a college baker who gets swept up in her crush's drama with her job as a grim reaper. The storyline was interesting, but I did feel there was a certain something missing. Perhaps it went a little too fast for me, or maybe it just went in a strange direction. However, the graphic novel was really easy and quick to read, and for the most part, I did enjoy it - especially the parts where Becka and Kim interact and talk to one another.

    All in all,

    Too cutesy and squee for me. Becka has a crush on Kim Reaper. She accidentally gets pulled into one of Kim's jobs as a grim reaper while trying to ask Kim out. The rest of book revolves around Kim's reaping job. There's a lot of stream of consciousness story here and no larger plotting going on. It almost feels like a web comic where it's just a couple of jokes and then you return the next day for another dose of the same thing.

    I love diversity in comics.

    It can enrich a story dramatically and act as a backdrop for enhancing the story. Kim Reaper focuses so much on diversity and representation that the story falls absolutely flat and relies on internet humour that is subpar.

    I'm not too fond of Kim. I don't like Becka much either. The plot is centred around internet and humour found in Gravity Falls. I don't feel like this comic brings anything new to the table. The weirdness seems forced - it seems as if it took on weirdness in order to feel special or different when in fact it is not at all unique. It's all centred around pandering to internet humour and PC. The romance is completely rushed and I feel the characters had no connection or prior knowledge on which to build their relationship. Kim and Becka already go on a date in issue 2! The romance is the central focus of the story, and yet it is so poorly written. Becka and Kim already experience relationship issues from issue 2 and have no healthy way of solving it. This does not bode well for them or for my sanity.

    Kim is a terrible Grim Reaper. Kim is such a horrible human being who does not have a trace of empathy despite having such an important job that is rooted in morality.

    The plot does not include an outline or goal. The comic mostly consists of the rambling and wandering of Kim and Becka. Whatever the two of them do, there is no consequence. A plot without consequence is a poor plot and a character without consequence is a poor, poor character.

    This comic has terrible writing. It’s staler than the toast I forgot to eat this morning.

    I like Tyler
