Even for someone who in general has a strong aversion to graphic novels, Burnout is undeniably good. Young, naive Danni moves into a small logging town where she falls in love with angst-ridden Haskell—her soon-to-be stepbrother and hard-core environmentalist, or what some might call an “eco-terrorist.” Together, they perform radical tactics, like spiking trees, clogging drainage pipes (in turn, poisoning lakes). Haskell lives by the motto: “Sometimes you have to do something extreme for people to take notice.” This motto, however, leads to a devastating turn of events that cause the demise of the very things he’s trying to save. Burnout is an environmentalist’s version of a romance novel, and thanks to Rebecca Donner, graphic novels could be my new guilty pleasure.
