    I discovered Eric Wight when I stumbled upon his Frankie Pickle books and bought them for my son. I fell in love with his art and humour straight away and started looking for his other work, which led me to My Dead Girlfriend. There is only one way to describe this book: cute. I like cute. In this case cute contains funny and smart and cool and true. Mostly it's humour comes from the smarty-pants of Phineas Bleak, a little boy whose family -- apart from his triplet sisters named April, May and Ju I discovered Eric Wight when I stumbled upon his Frankie Pickle books and bought them for my son. I fell in love with his art and humour straight away and started looking for his other work, which led me to My Dead Girlfriend. There is only one way to describe this book: cute. I like cute. In this case cute contains funny and smart and cool and true. Mostly it's humour comes from the smarty-pants of Phineas Bleak, a little boy whose family -- apart from his triplet sisters named April, May and June -- are ghosts. All dead. But his dead Mom and Dad are still good parents, and they care for Finny, making sure he is still attending Mephisto Prep, where he gets to apply his poisonous wit on the bullies of the Deadbeat clique or while fending off the "potion pushing" of Salamander Mugwart and her coven of Glindas. The smart and cool are all wrapped up with the funny stuff, and together they make up three quarters of the cute. And then there is the true stuff. The last and most important part of teh cute. Wight actually recognizes, straight away, that little boys AND GIRLS think about sex and love. So the story revolves around Fin's lost love, a beautiful girl -- who's almost as witty as Fin -- named Jenny Wraith. They met at the carnival, had one shining day together, fell in love and made a date to meet the next day. Jenny never showed up and Fin pined away for months before he found out that she died on her way to see him. But she finally reveals herself as his guardian ghost the day he makes a move to get over her and asks Dahlia out on a date. What?! She's a manipulative little ghost, that Jenny. But then who wouldn't be if their boy was about to get over them? And this isn't just platonic puppy love we're talking about here. Wight actually recognizes that more goes on in the thoughts of teenagers and more is bound to go on in the life of teenagers. There is a killer ethereal smooch and some serious heavy petting. This is sexuality that is true to the teenage spirit, at least the spirit I remember, and yet it all manages to remain cute and sweet. Put all together in its cute package, My Dead Girlfriend is an excellent little comic book (they call it Manga on the cover, and maybe it is. I don't know Manga. But it felt like a comic to me). My kids will love it.

    Cute story. This is about a high school kid in a school populated with vampires, monsters, mummies, witches - you get the picture. Normal teenage stuff and then some. Finney (the main character) ends ups with a girlfriend who is - obviously - dead. I may or may not read the next volume but this was definitely a fast read. ******** And - just realized there is no second volume. I wondered as much when I saw it was Tokyopop 2007.

    This was a really cute story. I just wish that there had been more. The ending did not feel like the end of the story. Also, with it being labelled as Vol.1, I kinda wanted a Vol.2 as well.

    Pa: It's been a while since you finished, and we've been bad. Do you even remember My Dead Girlfriend? Miloš: Yeah. Pa: So? Miloš: If I can remember stuff from years ago, I can remember stuff from two weeks ago. Pa: Fair enough. What do you want to say about it? Miloš: I ... uh ... it was really cool. I liked how it was scary. I liked how his girlfriend was a ghost, and most of the people he knew were ghosts. Pa: What about his family? Miloš: I liked them. They were cool. All the Bleaks, and stuff. P Pa: It's been a while since you finished, and we've been bad. Do you even remember My Dead Girlfriend? Miloš: Yeah. Pa: So?

Pa: Did Finn like them? Miloš: No, he didn't. Pa: So why did you like them? Miloš: Just because of their names. Pa: Their names are cool. What else did you like? Miloš: How his girlfriend died. Tripped over a rock into a wishing well, and I like the extra pictures at the end. Pa: Those are called concept art. Miloš: What does concept art mean? Pa: It's the work an artists does to create his characters. It's how he learns what they're like. Cool, huh? It's kind of like the pictures you've been drawing of your pirate character. Would you read another one of the Finneas Bleak books? Miloš: Yeah. He just called himself Finney. Pa: Anything else you want to say? Miloš: No ... not really. Actually there is one more thing. Pa: Okay. Miloš: All the monsters ... all the pets ... had wings. Pa: And ... Miloš: That's sorta weird. Why do pets need wings if they're monsters? Pa: Weren't the pets gargoyles? Miloš: Gargoyles? What are those? Pa: On old churches and buildings, they'd have these stone demon statues that were on the walls. Those were gargoyles. Miloš: It looked like a dog, though. But then again it had a demon tail and horns and it was purple, so it was probably a gargoyle. Pa: It's a cool pet. Would you like one? Miloš: Yeah. Only I'd rather a shitzhu. Pa: Hahahaha. You're crazy.

    I can't say that I fell in love with this book. A gothic romance between Finney and a ghost named Jenny. Finney is a teenager that doesn't fit in anywhere at school. He is quiet and doesn't fit into any of the cliques. Three months ago a carnival comes to town and his entire family goes. He isn't very excited about this. Everyone goes off on there own to explore. Thats when he meets Jenny. They explore and have the greatest time. Its like love at first sight. They make plans to meet each other th I can't say that I fell in love with this book.

One day she comes to him at the cemetery but not as a human but as a ghost. She explains what happened when she was on the way to meet Finney. She tripped over a rock and falls down a hole and dies. He spirit lifts up and she becomes a ghost. They decide they are willing to give it a try. Very sweet ending. I was hoping for more of a sad story and gore. It never got there. It felt like the author ripped off a few stories and made this. I liked it but could care less it there is more to the story.

    Nostalgic What can I say, this was the art style back in the days. These were the stories I read and loved. Man, do I miss reading this kind of manga and sad that we no longer see this kind of art style no longer.

    The only reason I put this under manga is because of the publisher. The book itself is okay.

    My dead girlfriend Art: despite being from tokyopop this is not a manga or in manga style the art work is blocky like a mix between Invader zim and danny phantom very cartoony and blocking and thick lined but even so it's clean and unique in comics it has enough cartoony style that it's easy on the eyes. Like a manga this comic is in black and white which just adds to the gothic, grim look of it. A+ Characters: Finney, jenny, and a cast of characters that would turn monster high on it's head. Finn My dead girlfriend Art: despite being from tokyopop this is not a manga or in manga style the art work is blocky like a mix between Invader zim and danny phantom very cartoony and blocking and thick lined but even so it's clean and unique in comics it has enough cartoony style that it's easy on the eyes. Like a manga this comic is in black and white which just adds to the gothic, grim look of it. A+ Characters: Finney, jenny, and a cast of characters that would turn monster high on it's head. Finney is a Goth boy with a bleak outlook on life but with a last name like bleak and having half your family dead and being bullied who wouldn't have a bleak out look on life? Finney is fresh and new he's sarcastic and funny and finds joy in strange things he is like the “What if danny from danny phantom was goth” and this is your answer. Jenny is a sweet loving girl who makes an instant connection with finney. Finney's classmates and family are also fun and interesting with a family of ghosts and three sisters. His classmates are monsters literally Finney has been dropped in a mix between monster high and a demon school from an anime. The secondary characters are the classic monsters and they fall to the bully stereotype but thats what makes them so fun. A Story: Finney bleak is your average goth boy in a school full of monsters he has nightmares about death and a bleak outlook on life till he meets jenny but in the family of bleak well happily ever after is all what you make of it. This story is fast past and fun the pages just fly by. This story is for those of us who like darker stories with out the gore like JTHM for younger teens who want twisted and fun but not necessary blood or gore the characters really make this story shine Finney is your stereotypical Goth doesn't see much of a future because were all going to die anyway, gets bullied a lot, and maybe has a death wish that of course he really doesn't want to come true after all. He meets this girl jenny and they really hit it off their relationship is sweet and jenny isn't who you think she is at first. This story is just plan out fun for those of us who are getting sick of the light and fluffy and goody goody here's some noir fluffy for you all. This story is also very funny with lines this is laugh out loud invader zim funny. The story ends on a cliffhanger that sadly won't be out any time soon this story was published in 2006 it's been 5 years and no book two but even for that little nit pick there is nothing wrong with this story at it's core it is similar to danny phantom if danny phantom went goth and were a comic book A+ Cover: Dark, gothic, sexy! We have finney in a graveyard with his pet and possibly death in the background looming over him. This cover sticks out from all the other tokyopop books with light and fluffy covers with bright pastel colors the colors heres are gray, off gray, green gray, black, and purple the cover really screams goth and dark and almost tim Burton A+ Rating: T for teen Company: Tokyopop (out of business) My rating : 5 of 5 I loved this story it was fast past and before I knew it it was over! When I was reading Finney's voice sounded like danny from danny phantom I think he looks a lot like a goth danny phantom don't you? My only nitpick is it never finished! We are left hanging forever vol 2 does not exist either because tokyopop knew it was going out of business and never picked it up or something like that. I love this story it's dark and fun and funny and the best part? A POCKY AD IN THE BACK! No other manga/comic has a pocky ad it makes me laugh. Also I guess there were promotional trading cards to this sadly they are probably really rare now. Sorry about the lame review it's not that there is nothing about this to review it's just the story is so straight forward and you can't review it properly with out spoilers and such.

The cover has a Joss Whedon quote, “. . . A Delight”. How I am supposed to refuse a testimony from Firefly’s creative genius? So, I took it home for a spin. Finney is the youngest member in the long and unfortunate Bleak bloodline, and has few pressures that weigh more heavily upon him than his impending, and most likely, cataclysmic death. The Bleak family is notorious for its members meeting their demise: Margaret Bleak, a magician’s assistant was literally sawed in half, and Archibald Bleak, a zookeeper, was smothered by manure. Downtrodden and consumed by his fear of death, Finney attracts nothing but trouble at his high school, which is full of Zombies, Monters, Aliens (through a foreign exchange program) and other outcasts. Finney met Jenny many months ago at a traveling carnival which after all the rides, treats and both spitting off the ferris wheel they bonded and fell in love. They plan to meet again, but Finney is stood up. What happened to his love? My Dead Girlfriend is a mix of Nickelodeon’s “Halloween Town” (staring the all so fun dinner theater queen, Debbie Reynolds) and Manga. It is an original English Manage, which has the typical Manga feel through the storyline. * The Tortured Soul o Not just one soul but many. It seems the Bleak family tree is not meant to have peaceful death. Everyone died from some unusual tragic moment, sometimes a series of painful moments until their final demise. * Haunting o In Manga hauntings are no always about good or evil spirits, sometimes it is History, Destiny, Spells and Curses. My Dead Girlfriend is the trifecta of haunt; fearful of your own future death, constant bombardment of dead relatives and of course a Haunt of a lost love. * Cute Mutant Animals o Manga is always putting some unusually cute animal inked. It is no wonder Pokeman is so popular. It was probably repeated through some old cute Managa that the Corporate suits could not tell the difference between Managa faithfuls and commercial zombie consumers. My Dead Girlfriend is the first series created by Wight, who is best known for his work on the television show The O.C. Wight has the desperate teenage emotions in both ink and words. I could not help wonder what Wight’s puberty was like and how much is from his own experience. The character Finney torment and overly sentimental is all too real and reminiscent of High School years. The artwork is a cross between Manga and comic strips. It was simple but the storyline came through at an even pace. The dead characters, although dead, were active through out the story. The inking did a good job to see difference, immediately, who was actually dead dead, dead or not dead yet. If you have a teen (tween) this would be a great book to introduce them to two worlds Comics and Manga. I gave My Dead Girlfriend an average rating because this is a borrower, get it at your local library. I did not feel this should be a keeper in my collection. I read it once and was not compelled to read it again.

During the first volume, Finney meets Jenny Wraith, whom he falls in love with. Unfortunately, Death gets jealous and kills her, and she becomes a ghost. Okay, maybe not all of his problems are typical for middle schoolers. I'll be honest, I picked this one up because Joss Whedon reviewed it and said he liked it. Flipping through it in the store, it didn't draw me in, but I figured it couldn't be that bad if Joss liked it. I was right, it wasn't bad, in fact, it was pretty good. It has a fun spin on teen angst, and has some interesting characters. I'm interested to see where the series goes after the first volume, so I will probably pick up volume 2 when it comes out, but there's no indication when that will be (an unfortunate trend in English language manga). My Dead Girlfriend is definitely worth picking up if you enjoy cute stories involving the supernatural. For more manga and anime reviews, please check out Hobotaku.

    I picked this graphic novel from the new book selection at the library. I am so glad I did. This is a light, funny story that touches on real teen angst. Finney Bleak comes from a long line of cursed individuals. His entire family has been fated to die in weird and horrific ways (some so funny I had to stop and breath after reading them).

Finney doesn't live in the same world as we do. His classmates include witches, werewolves, vampires and other assorted creatures. Finney comes across as the only "normal" one in the bunch except that his dead relatives refuse to stay dead. The ghosts of his family irritate him. The only shining moment he had was at the carnival months previous when he met Jenny, his true love or so he thought. His heart is broken when she disappears from his life. Stuck in high school hell, Finney is just trying to survive. He's bullied and friendless but when he learns what happened to Jenny he discovers he can find something worthwhile. It doesn't feel like one of "those" books but underneath the charm of Finney's plight is a real emotional story about growing up, falling in love and facing the world. The only thing that disappointed me was when I discovered that this was Volume 1 (of course at the end of the story) and I would have to wait to find out what happens next.

Though the presentation of the comics in a manga format from TokyoPop sends a slightly confusing message in terms of who would enjoy reading it because the art style is quite American as is the humor. The publishers are doing their best to appeal to a number of audiences and the story has some cute elements as Finney finds a girl who seems perfect until he discovers she's a ghost just like most of his family. This is truly the greatest issue faced in this comic, which makes it a good read for any range from late elementary school to early high school due to the comic take on violence. Overall this is a nice addition to the world of goth and supernatural works for young readers but slightly confusing in terms of the style combined with how its published. If it was presented in a true comic book format instead of a fake manga one, it would be easier for it to reach its possible audience of guys.

    I didn't enjoy this book as much the second time round. It's still good and the illustrations are lovely just didn't get the same joy as when I first read it. Maybe it's because I know there is no second one and the story just ends with this volume, which is rubbish! I want to know what happens! The extra drawings in the back are a nice bonus. Overall a nice quick read but don't get to attached as it doesn't seem like there is going to be anymore :( I didn't enjoy this book as much the second time round.

    This was a funny story of a living boy of the name Finny Bleak, who was in a world of horror. His family were all ghost, his classmates were monsters, and he was living. He was also at the bottom of the food chain until Jenny came along. But there was one problem, she was dead and a ghost. Just how far will Finny go to be with his true love? Find out!

    A very cute graphic novel set in a high school full of witches and ghosts etc. A boy falls in love with a girl, who then dies but, luckily, in this world the dead and living live side-by-side so they continue their relationship. Very fun!

    This book was ok, not good. It is cutesy goth drivel. That said, I think that is an under appreciated genre. The art is nothing to write home about. The story was hackneyed. However, it was mindlessly entertaining. I'll probably buy the next issue when it comes out. This book was ok, not good. It is cutesy goth drivel.

    This is a cute book...in a "monsters are adorable" kind of way! Young Finney's ancestors have all met horribly bizarre deaths, and Fin obsesses about his own demise. My Dead Girlfriend features monster cliques in Fin's monster high, familial ghosts with "spirit", and a story of unrequited love. This is a cute book...in a "monsters are adorable" kind of way!

    A very weird paranormal graphic novel about a boy whose family history will involve him to have an interesting death. His girlfriend is already a ghost and he goes to a high school with vamps, undead, and other crazy creatures. Cute, but weird too.

    I love, love, love, LOVED it! My kind of story! I love the artwork. I'm not a huge fan of the anime style, though I still like it, but I like this much more. Love the story, love the characters, love the art...fabulous! I will be buying this! I love, love, love, LOVED it! My kind of story! I love the artwork.

    Just had a Plain Janes moment. Wright only wrote one in what was surely a planned series and I'm so mad because it's great. Super fun, hilarious and great art. Yes, I know he's had sucess with Frankie Pickle series but this makes me wish so hard there were more. Just had a Plain Janes moment.
