Scary Godmother by Jill Thompson | Graphic Novel Review

I used to watch Scary Godmother: Halloween Spooktacular and its sequel Scary Godmother: The Revenge of Jimmy every October, and then Cartoon Network stopped showing them. While I was in a course on children’s literature two years ago, I found Scary Godmother in the children’s section of one of the academic libraries. I never knew that the TV show was based on a graphic novel, and it was fun to read.
