Five Years Ago and Three Thousand Miles Away Reviews
Three of many possible futures: one where TJ and Amal are living together, one where they're in a long distance relationship, and one where things didn't work out.Bit worried about the 'they didn't work out' possibility but not enough to stop me wanting this. Still in Reprints.... Hope to get my mitts on a copy.Comic = $9Postage = $22.50*sigh* :(
I bought this on paper, horrendous shipping costs notwithstanding. I love to have my graphic novels on paper. I was worried that I wouldn't like some of the options, but I love all of them.
Weaver manages something really difficult here, not just showing three possible futures in all their bittersweet loveliness, but offering surprising detail and nuance for each of those possibilities in a very small space. In the two futures where they've remained a couple, it feels very true to life that both realities have their pluses and minuses: long-distance relationships are hard, but the logistics involved in staying together also involve real challenges. Despite that, the love and chemistry between the two shines through. And even in the future where they're not together, it's fascinating to see how their brief time together has changed them both for the better. Three lovely codas for a much-loved series.
This was a lovely addition to The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal. A touch of a conclusion, without going too far back into the story, and telling it exactly like the previous book, as a series of slice of life, of tiny but deeply significant moments.
For lovers of the main series, Five Years Ago and Three Thousand Miles Away is a fantastic epilogue to TJ and Amal's adventures. There are three endings, all of them beautiful, even if bittersweet. The art is great, the emotions heavy, and it's nice to see that the two men ended up okay after their epic car trip. It goes without saying, don't read this if you haven't read the first three volumes (or the omnibus), but if you have, this is definitely worth the price of the ebook (not the print because I live in Canada and shipping to us is terrible, but I'd have totally grabbed the print version if that was not the case!)
Epilogue comic to The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal. Shows three possible futures for the couple, some together, some not, but all better for having known each other.
