Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This chronicles the adventures of a group of six teens (three boys, three girls) who start up a high school radio station. The leader of this motley band is Janey Wells, a redhead who has to use her wits at least once per episode to bail everyone out of the latest caper they've somehow gotten into. There are four capers in this graphic novel: our heroes crash a fashion show, compete on reality television, attend a rock concert and rescue WJHC from the clutches of the clueless Mr. Stanger. WJHC: Hold Tight reminds me of Archie comics, with a dash of Scooby Doo thrown into the mix. The stories are lighthearted and fun to read, and the art is bright and (very) colorful. The characters are a cross-section of the social strata that exists in every high school; the girls are better developed character-wise than the guys, but perhaps this will change with future volumes. I don't see any objectionable material in this graphic novel. WJHC: Hold Tight is a good choice for younger teens, and is recommended for libraries with collections that cater to this age group. KLIATT Codes: J--Recommended for junior high school students. 2005, Wilson Place Comics, 96p. illus., Ages 12 to 15.
—George Galuschak
VOYA
The second book in the "all ages" comic series, WJHC, continues the story from the previous volume, WJHC on the Air! (Wilson Place Comics, 2003/VOYA December 2003). After bad press, the student radio station is given a teacher advisor, one who loves the airwaves and dreams of being a star. When Janey, Tara, and the gang spoil his fun and ruin him professionally, they hit the small screen in Fittest of the Fit and compete against Golden Glory High in a reality TV show set in a haunted mansion. Friendship rivalry between Tara and Janey rears its ugly head when Tara tries to steal Ciel away from Janey, but all ends well when they realize that it is okay to have other friends. The final chapter is a story of the gang trying to get into a concert after they missed their ride. Overall this episodic graphic novel may appeal to Archie readers. The writing has some well-placed jokes and gags, but is neutral in controversy and real plot. The characters are without any real dimension. The art is bright and colorful, which reminds this reviewer of the Mark Crilley series, Akiko. The art is like something out of a "How to Draw Cartoons" book-very cartoony. The backgrounds are multiple bright colors that change even when the setting stays the same. Very few readers will really get into this series, and although comics are in high demand, librarians should search elsewhere. VOYA CODES: 2Q 2P M J G (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q; For the YA with a special interest in the subject; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Graphic Novel Format). 2005, Wilson Place Comics, 96p., Trade pb. Ages 11 to 15.
