Eternal Smile

The Eternal Smile: Three Stories Gene Luen Yang and Derek Kirk Kim

Three stories, joined together by the same twist ending. The first one, about a knight on a quest to win the princess's hand, didn't do much for me. I liked the second a lot, but because it reminded me of Duck Tales, but with frogs. I really liked the third, because there was a different twist to the twist ending. But, for some odd reason, I read the third story first. I don't know if I would have liked it as much if I had read it third.

The stories are all about taking control of your life, but done in a not-overly-subtle way. At times, it seemed manipulative. I'm a big fan of Yang and Kim, but this one just didn't do it for me.
