Leftist Tom Taylor's new GN wins award for reimagining Peter Pan

IGN reported a graphic novel by leftist comics writer Taylor has won an award it surely doesn't deserve, based on his reprehensible wokeness:
Tom Taylor and Jon Sommariva's Neverlanders was already one of the best-reviewed new graphic novels of 2022, but now it's achieved something no other comic book has. Neverlanders is now the first comic to win the prestigious Book of the Year award from the Children’s Book Council of Australia.

Neverlanders recently took home the award in the "Book of the Year for Older Readers" category, making it the first comic book to win an award in the CBCA's 77-year history.

Neverlanders is a Peter Pan sequel set years after Pan himself has gone missing. Neverland is beset by civil war, and the last remaining Lost Boy recruits a group of runaway children to fight alongside Tinker Bell's fairy army against a new pirate villain. The book is published through Random House's Razorbill imprint in the US.

"I'm so excited that, for the first time in its 77-year history, a comic book has won the Book of the Year for Older Readers," Taylor said in a statement. "To me, comics are the greatest storytelling medium on the planet, and potentially the most powerful educational tool available for reluctant readers. Knowing that our graphic novel will be in more libraries and schools, and in the hands of more people across the country, makes me very happy. Neverlanders is a story for now. It feels like the exact right time for an epic tale of young people fighting for their future and standing against short-sighted, greedy adults.”
What if this turns out to be quite the liberal metaphor? There was once a time when a story like this about youngsters fighting corrupt adults could've worked out, because decades ago, such stories weren't blatant leftist/political screeds. But when one considers how political Taylor's writings have been, that's why it pays to be wary what Neverlanders could be like. So if this even goes so far as to depict a civil war where the baddies are metaphors for conservatives, that'll be pretty telling too. Taylor's certainly not a writer whose works should be financed.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
