Another Chance to Get It Right

 ACT8   (Dark Horse, 1992, 1995, 2003)

Another Chance to Get it Right can best be described as a children’s book for adults. Not a book of children’s stories that can also be enjoyed by adults, mind you. On the contrary, they are adult stories that use children as its main characters.

The hard cover black and white graphic novel published by Dark Horse Comics is comprised of short stories, poetry and stream of consciousness-type tales focusing on such weighty issues as child abuse, juvenile violence and the power of imagination. What sets this apart from your more traditional novel is the fact that some of comicdom’s biggest names provide interior artwork. Artists like Paul Chadwick, Geof Darrow and Dave Gibbons provide drawings that enhance the stories. Some are full-page images—traditional in most novels—while others are done in a multiple panel comic book format. The result is a unique format capable of reaching a wider audience.
