    1. Hey guys, did you know that some of us don’t have or want kids and that’s ok? I had no idea anything quite so obvious needed to be stated but see how quickly I did that, Julian Hanshaw? Didn’t need a 150 page book to draw that shit out! Tim Ginger is a comic in dire need of something - anything - happening in it. Our dull protagonist is a retired military test pilot who might’ve seen some extra-terrestrial stuff during one flight but now lives alone - his wife’s dead and they never had [...]



    2. This is a lovely graphic novel with a sweet and somewhat predictable ending that nevertheless is complex and surprising and subtle in many ways throughout. Tim Ginger, former government test pilot, now a widow, is retired and living in a trailer in New Mexico near where she died and he lost his sight in a plane accident. He has written about something he thought he saw, something dark about the government, so he gets invited to conspiracy/ufo conventions to speak. He also plays cricket since he [...]


    3. It's possible this book starts out with a quote by Dolly Parton. Yep, I'm pretty sure it does. "I never really had the desire to have children. My husband didn't want them either, so it worked out well."Yep. This is one strange book. Whatever you're expecting, it's likely to quietly evade your expectations.(There are likely spoilers in this review, FYI). "Tim Ginger" is partly a meditation on the topic of adults who choose not to have children (or who for some other reason don't have children.) [...]


    4. A very moving story, and one of the strongest I've read all year. The tone is measured and contemplative. Hanshaw is adept at drawing out his story in narratively strategic ways, and one of the ways he handles this is through panel perspective. The many images he presents are close-ups on objects within the setting, many of which reveal undertone or mood. So both in craft and in story, Hanshaw knows how to present a narrative.


    5. Wistful and melancholic. A triumph of cricket over conspiracy theory. If it ever gets made into a film, Tommy Lee Jones should play the lead role.


    6. Ostensibly this comic is about a former test pilot who thinks he saw something on one of his flights and who lost his wife to an early death. However it is really a book that has a deep and profound theme applicable to almost every adult in the western world over the age of thirty. We must let go of the past to allow progress to a happier future. We don't forget the past and the people and places we knew, but they cease to act as a chain tethering us to something we can never return to.In betwee [...]


    7. Impressive work! I'd not heard of Julian Hanshaw before, but this looked intriguing. It's pretty much a character study of Mr. Ginger, a former test pilot, cricket enthusiast, and widower living in a trailer in the New Mexico desert. There's mybe a touch of magic realism to the story, which involves conspiracy theorists, UFOs, a former love interest, comics, and an eyepatch. That sounds more lively and exciting than it's meant to. This is not an action/adventure yarn, but a character study. Ging [...]


    8. It kind of felt like reading my own story in a different context, I feel what he feels deep inside. Simple yet moving story.




    9. A very clever, unique story - brilliantly told through the images and text, well spaced, paced, the best graphic novel I've encountered in a wee while



    10. Do you know why it’s probably a good idea for anyone interested in comics to stay away from the mainstream DC/Marvel stuff? Because not in a million years would you read a book like Tim Ginger if you did. The concept of Tim Ginger is both unique, extravagant, and at the same time very simple. It deals with a topic that most of don’t think about which is parenthood, and more specifically what it’s like for people who never wanted to be parents (more so than the irritating justification it r [...]


    11. I don’t know how to put this in a way that doesn’t seem like a back-hand compliment, so I’m just going to say that I really liked this book. What made it stand out is the story about love and mystery and fighter jets and loss. The art sort of takes a back seat until the very end, which is what makes it feel back-handed. “Good job, Mr. Graphic Novelist, That art didn’t really stand out. “But the story fits the genre and is necessary for the cool moment at the end whicih is the payoff [...]


    12. So uhhh yeah, some people don't want kids. You could have written a comic book about that (the book within this book idea was interesting but way too transparent).or you could have written the What Did Tim Ginger Really See Out There, book. But not having quite enough to say about either one they ended up as one lumped together, lovingly drawn, but ultimately listless little slip of a book. Bro, put a little oomph into it! One of those that would have benefited from being far bolder.


    13. Reading this once more might just bump it to 5 stars. It's a bit difficult to describe the book, but reading the description on tells you enough to decide whether or not you want to read it, yet barely scratches the surface of its depth. It affected me on a personal level, which it probably won't do with everyone. I highly recommend it and will revisit it in a few weeks or months.


    14. Tim Ginger is a graphic novel about a former test pilot, who is now a widower hitting the book circuit to promote his book. The story isn't straightforward and requires some thought to peel away the layers. It is a fairly quick read, clocking in at under 200 pages.


    15. I liked it. But couldn't tell many of the characters apart, even men from women--it required an eye patch or neck brace to be sure. Same with time; it went back and forth. There's a good story there, but it's not readily accessible.



    16. It seems perhaps that there was a mild tension between the dull parts of the story (most of it) and the hints of a potentially interesting aspect to the story.
