Reader's Diary #2266 - Liniers: Wildflowers

Aimed at younger reader, Linier's Wildflowers comic is a lot like Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are in its embrace of childhood imagination. 

It begins with a bizarre, should be traumatic, scene with a visual of a plane wreck on an island. It would appear that the only survivors are three young girls. But why do they seem so nonplussed about it all? Slowly it reveals itself that the girls are just playing. It's light hearted and amusing from there on out, so more pleasant I suppose than Sendak's!
