    I quite like Ru Xu’s art, especially the colours she uses. She fills the layout of the graphic novel - every panel has beautiful detail - which is not something every graphic novel artist does. Some don’t take the time to draw a background, but Ru Xu does.So this story is definitely pleasing to the eyes. It makes reading it not dull, tedious or repetitive. Wonderful vibrant colours.Therefore, the art is not at all a problem. Even the story isn’t awful. I mean, it’s been done before, what [...]

    Steampunk meets the twenties and AI civil rights, as a girl disguises herself as a boy so that she can sell newspapers. Then she meets a scientist, becomes his apprentice, and then meets a boy who is also keeping a secret. There’s a war on! Art is very good, and the story is solid, if not all that original. Good, not spectacular, but an impressive debut!Another book about girl newsies? Brian Vaughn’s Paper Girls.

    This was a fun read and I loved the art style but I unfortunately felt as though the story was a little disjointed and the pacing felt somewhat frantic and lacking in explanation/information. I especially found this to be the case when it came to gender identify and a few other key plot points. However, it was a super quick read and I now have a major craving to watch newsies

    All right, I might be coming around on the robot civil rights movement with this one. GIVE ME TIME, ARTIFICIALLY INTELLIGENT FRIENDS!

    Fun little sci-fi adventure, with full-color, manga-adjacent art.The world here was interesting - it's a little early-20th century with the newsies and architecture and the mechanistic innovation. It'll appeal to kids who likeKazu Kibuishi's stuff, andTower of Treasure andAgatha Heterodyne and the Beetleburg Clank. Oh, and I always have a weakness for the girls-dressing-up-as-boys/genderplay genre (Newsgirl, Shakespeare natch).Didn't blow me away as much as I expected it to, but you know what th [...]

    I've purchased a couple of "better" graphic novels for my collection, but my students seem to prefer the falling apart copies of Stickman Odyssey. For $25, I think I'll pass on this one, although it's very well done. The whole Steampunk trend has completely by passed my students, and I think that my graphic novel readers would be a bit confused by the setting. Definitely a better quality graphic novel, but I don't think it would circulate well.

    So I have a soft spot for girl newsies. Whatevs.

    I’m wandering around my school's book fair, thinkin’, “What do I wanna get?” Then I looked around a bit and OHMYGOSHTHATLOOKSAWESOME! So I read the blurb and the title, Newsprints, purchased the book, and I start reading. SO worth it.The actual book is about two people, Blue and Crow, who aren’t as they seem, in a cross between steampunk london and 20th century New york. One is an orphan who disguises herself as a newsboy under the Bungle, while the other has a seemingly unnatural conn [...]

    An odd, beautiful and unique graphic novel about a girl pretending to be a boy in a fantasy steampunk world at war. I love how much Ru loves birds (I agree with her, they are the best), and I loved how sparky and fun this story was. (10+)*Please note: this review is meant as a recommendation only.

    NewsPrints is a cute little story about a girl disguising herself as a boy so that she can sell newspapers. Then she meets a scientist and becomes his apprentice. Then she meets a strange boy. Also, the world is at war and everything is steampunky! The plot of this book isn't particularly unique. The world is not our own and is fleshed out enough to make sense, but not enough to really capture my interest. The art is just fabulous though. Full colour pages with detailed backgrounds. It's a joy t [...]

    The art was fun, but the story was rather muddled, with some unfortunate cissexism.(view spoiler)[The protagonist is a girl who poses as a boy (I think - see later) so that she can sell newspapers - somehow an occupation only open to boys in this rather contrived steam-/dieselpunk setting where women can work in factories to aid the war effort, but not as newspaper boys?It was somewhat unclear to me whether the protagonist identified as a boy or a girl, there were lines in favor of both - I foun [...]

    For some reason, this wasn't quite working for me. I really liked the characters and the messages that Xu presented, but I didn't sync with the art well. Plus, there were times when information seemed missing or glossed over.I may come back to this at some point, but most likely not.

    This book had many aspects of feminism and I loved the wonderful illustrations as well!There was the classical but also significant, modified symbolic elements (such as the birds) which really made the puzzle in this comically made story fun to figure out. I had a great time reading it!

    The scene progression was a little choppy, but I really liked the characters and artwork. I want more Crow!

    Graphic Novel Entry #1"NewsPrints" by Ru Xu is directed towards children who read at an intermediate grade level, 3rd-6th grade. I identified this novel as a science Fiction graphic novel because though the setting reflects a time somewhere around the early 1900s the world is geographically dissimilar with different countries and cities, and engaged in a fictional war. Though the world that the characters live in is somewhat realistic, the book implements unrealistic technology such as fictional [...]

    I did not love this book. The artwork felt muddled to me particularly in action sequences. Issues of gender identity were used as plot points rather than developing character. The best parts of NewsPrints were call backs to other similar stories. In a growing market of action graphic novels, this one is middle of the field. Better stories can be found elsewhere.

    Thank goodness there's going to be a sequel! I was a bit worried there for a momentThis is one of the better graphic novels I've read. With its sort of steampunk 1920s setting and nicely drawn illustrations, it's a fun book. While it wasn't the most original in terms of some of the themes (i.e girl pretends to be a boy so she can actually do stuff in a rather sexist world), it had a decent plot (though not what the synopsis led me to expect). Some of the characters were a bit of a miss for me (t [...]

    I absolutely adored NewsPrints by Ru Xu. I got to know about it after I read her webcomic Saint for Rent, which I love, and I'm so glad I decided to read it. I loved Blue and the other characters, and the art is so lovely. Just read this! It's such a heartwarming story.

    Laura
    Absolutely delightful. A fantastic world and great dramatic arc. The characters are passionate and inhabitable. The art is nuanced and distinct. The colors are some of the best I've seen in a while. I love Ru Xu's creations. You should be reading Saint for Rent, their webcomic!

    Cleo Joyce
    Graphic novel with several interesting things going on--historical setting similar to WWI, sci-fi technologies/almost steam-punkish, and a girl dressing as a boy to get by. Not my favorite new GN I've read this year but a solid suggestion for the GN reader who has tried everything.

    Nadine
    Steampunk meets emancipation in a new graphic novel featuring a feisty girl news-seller who encounters an automaton and comes to its rescue.

    Jennifer
    Such a cute graphic novel with odes to the women who worked during the World Wars. Blue is a character you will want your children to read!

    Melissa
    This is the cutest and I want MORE.

    Taylor Iachini
    The art and colors were so fantastic and beautiful! I read all of this in one sitting, and I REALLY hope there is more to this story!

    Dolly
    Gorgeously detailed artwork and a complicated plot with a cliffhanger ending make this graphic novel a great introduction for a new series.

    David
    Great book for starting discussions about gender identity, equality, artificial intelligence, and the reliability of news sources!

    Scott Robins
    A familiar story that gets a bit clunky in spots but manages to come together to a satisfying conclusion. Artwork is an interesting mix of Japanese manga and Euro comics influence.

    Note: I received an ARC of this book from the publisher at ALA Midwinter 2017.

    Sesana
    The story is light, but the art is fantastic.

    Allison
    Ru Xu tells the incredible story of Blue - a newspaper "boy" who is faced with adversity in many different ways. The artwork is creative, detailed, and inspires readers to keep turning pages. I really enjoyed Blue's sass but I also enjoyed her charm and selflessness. She is very different from other children her age, an old soul almost. She also sees that uniqueness in others and gravitates towards ones that need her help the most. I am looking forward to the next installment of Newsprints!
