What’s it about? This is a story about the strange rising music star who is Poppy, an AI who may be the world’s savior or the world’s destroyer. As she is getting ready for her final update that will change her forever there is a fan who finds a secret way to communicate with Poppy and is on the run because of it. There’s also a secret agent from an Illuminati-esque group that is scared of what Poppy may do if she is updated. Pros: The story is pretty interesting and cool. It plays with the AI thing that’s in a lot of her music and videos, I think it’s fun that she didn’t go a typical autobiography direction like most artists would and decided to make her own type of sci-fi tale about herself. This book has a lot of fun easter eggs for the fans! This book is pretty intense throughout. There’s some good comic relief moments. This comic is very unpredictable. At first this plot sounds a bit standard or predictable but it really isn’t, especially towards the end. Cons: The artwork... okay so at first it isn’t bad but it’s not long before I realized it doesn’t 100% work for the book. It’s too cartoony for the story and the kinda thing you’d expect from a YA comic despite it not being one (or maybe it is, they seem to change what is or isn’t YA appropriate every Friday, third Tuesday and time the Pope sneezes so who knows) and it’s not like it has an I Hate Fairyland type humorous effect, it just seems out of place. I also dislike how Poppy herself is drawn. (Top: Poppy in this comic, bottom: Poppy) Aside from Poppy herself I really didn’t care about these characters. The dialogue is not good. The ending... I get that it’s meant to be funny or something but just feels anti-climactic, especially for everything that happens leading up to it. Mixed thoughts: There’s a companion album called ICU: Music To Read To. On one hand it does suit the tone of the book but it unfortunately doesn’t seem like Poppy music, especially as there’s no singing involved. I also should add don’t bother with the QR code as that page is sorta glitchy, stream it from Poppy’s YouTube channel as you read. It took away from the reading experience when I was having to fuck around with the glitchy page. So the moral of the story... I think it’s trying to give a good message about how entertainment is often just meant to be that and it’s not meant to be blamed for terrible things (a character even briefly mentions how stupid it was of people to blame Marilyn Manson (who is a friend of Poppy’s) for Columbine) but at the same time I think that falls apart in a story where a lot of disturbing events directly connected to Poppy happen. Overall: ”I’m Poppy.” In 2015 a mysterious young girl saying those 2 words over and over for 10 minutes went viral. At the time I am writing this review the video has over 23.5 million views. From most of the people I’ve talked to if you’ve heard of Poppy (who BTW is a character played by Moriah Rose Pereira, not really an AI) you find her interesting, whether you’re a fan of her work or not. How does one go from weird YouTube videos, bubblegum pop that a certain part of the internet likes and some outrage from conspiracy theory nuts to national TV appearances, changing the music up to be a strange mix of genres (sometimes sounding softer than Ariana Grande, other times sounding more aggressive than Slipknot, sometimes in the same song), selling out of tickets at some of her tour’s shows (a tour which includes one show I am very excited to see), having a big record deal and being friends with some big names. With lots of music, a comic book, a big YouTube following and a horror movie in production all about her, Poppy is certainly an interesting rising star... one that I have become a massive fan of. As far as her comic book goes I will admit I am a little disappointed. Since I’m a big fan of Poppy and I love comics I thought I was gonna like this more. That being said it’s still pretty decent with an interesting story, a very intense tone and oh-so-many easter eggs. It is worth trying if you’re a fan of Poppy just know it’s flawed. If you’re not a fan of Poppy (check out some of her stuff if you haven’t, she just released a bad-ass new album after all), there’s not much reason to read this one. 3/5

    You will pledge your allegiance to Poppy. You will do anything Poppy says. Poppy loves you and will always love you. Poppy welcomes you into her universe.

The artwork for Poppy's face was especially disappointing. Fans of Poppy know that Poppy does not have a manga style non-nose. It was an especially weird choice because the other characters have noses. Her eye color isn't right either. The amount of time Poppy fans spend looking at her face should have made it important to get her face right. The story is a muddled mess, which is exactly what I was expecting. The best part is near the end where the truth or part of it is finally told. What is the point of your art? "It looked like fun, making videos and singing, so I did it." Leaving out it's also been lucrative.

    I've personally been a long time fan of the peculiar youtube sensation that is Poppy. If you know anything about her, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.

Whether or not this tale is true or not doesn't matter, because it's an awesome story all it's own, full of hidden meanings and unanswered questions like usual. A wonderfully haunting art style, a complete short story, and a barcode you can scan to reveal a hidden soundtrack for the book!

    This book is graphic novel perfection, and it is written to "explain" the phenomenon simply known as *Poppy*. This book is the best I've read in this genre. It easily earns a 5-star rating.

    Full disclosure; I partly expected this to be a bit of a cash-in into the Poppy phenomenon. I asked for it for Christmas anyway and my friend obliged (thank you Angj!), as a bit of a completionist and out of pure curiosity. Plus, i'm an easy guy to please for the most part so even a cobbled together graphic novel probably would have sufficed. I managed to get through Genesis 1 at quite a pace (I'm a notoriously slow reader), but I found it fascinating and loved how it linked in with Poppy's music Full disclosure; I partly expected this to be a bit of a cash-in into the Poppy phenomenon.

I managed to get through Genesis 1 at quite a pace (I'm a notoriously slow reader), but I found it fascinating and loved how it linked in with Poppy's music. The reference to tracks from her second record such as 'X' and 'Time Is Up' felt natural and a nice touch, thankfully the writers didn't try to shoehorn in every song title which would've detracted from the story. The storyline itself is interesting - again, in reference to the title of Poppy's second album it asks who she is/what she is/what her motives are. I won't give any spoilers or too much away but something of an answer is given at the end, in response to the real-world questions that have plagued Poppy ever since her breakthrough Youtube videos. As a slight criticism, one of my pet peeves is unrealistic dialogue and we do have a fair bit throughout where exposition seems to be the intention. In the context of the novel, however, it's easy to forgive and does somewhat help in fleshing out said character and his mindset. An extra touch that I really liked were the QR codes at the start and end - the former providing a free download of music to listen to whilst reading the novel, the latter a student 'worksheet'. It's apt that Poppy, who 'lives' in the internet sphere has fleshed out the Genesis 1 experience in this way.

    Poppy is an AI android created to subtly influence a human through subconscious psychological manipulation. Right now, she's on autopilot, but her creators want to give her a 'final upgrade' that will allow them to fully control her. The catch is they don't want to damage any of the AI in the process. Overall, an interesting plot, but the delivery is a little confusing, especially when the art suddenly changes with no explanation. (You figure out why eventually, but it's weird).

The characters are weird as well; I only liked Agent Spears and Dr. Charlotte. Remi... oh my god... dude wouldn't shut up! Poppy said it too, 7 pages after X. I think the best part of this book is the fact that you don't know if Poppy is harmless or secretly evil so the tension lasts. In summation, good story, nice but confusing art, meh to pathetic characters. Wasn't the best thing I've read, but it wasn't half bad.

    First of all, I am a HUGE fan of Poppy and have been for a while. I’ve gone to her concerts, own some of her merch, a member of her church etc. And when I found out that she was creating a graphic novel I was super excited but I held my expectations low. I’ve read and viewed other Youtuber’s or Social Media Influencer’s books before and majority of them are not the best quality, specifically in the writing. Which is fair because they are not authors, they are creators. So I sort of expected some First of all, I am a HUGE fan of Poppy and have been for a while.

I’ve read and viewed other Youtuber’s or Social Media Influencer’s books before and majority of them are not the best quality, specifically in the writing. Which is fair because they are not authors, they are creators. So I sort of expected something similar to other creator’s books. However, you can tell that Poppy and her team really put a lot of work into this. The art in it’s self is impressive, creative and interesting. The storyline was actually really clever, and not at all what I expected but it worked and was tied epically in the end. This book is exactly meant for her fandom (poppyseeds) and I think they will be very satisfied with it. The only disclaimer however is I feel that if you do not know about Poppy and her work, readers might be confused and misinterpret the meaning of the novel. So before you read it perhaps do some research, watch a couple videos and listen to some songs to get an idea of who Poppy is. Even if you don’t become a poppyseed, check this graphic novel out because it’s actually pretty descent. I hope Poppy blesses us with more books one day! /P\

    Genesis 1, una novela gráfica por Poppy, o - como dice la solapa- "el Evangelio según Poppy y Titanic Sinclair, interpretado por Ryan Cady [Warframe]". Es una historia de origen, pues. Como una historia de superhéroes. Según la descripción de Poppy misma "es la respuesta a las preguntas que le hacen sobre su origen". Bueno, obviamente no es sobre Poppy LA PERSONA, sino sobre EL PERSONAJE. Pero aún así por primera vez tenemos un canon coherente y una guía de los arcos narrativos. La historia es c Genesis 1, una novela gráfica por Poppy, o - como dice la solapa- "el Evangelio según Poppy y Titanic Sinclair, interpretado por Ryan Cady [Warframe]". Es una historia de origen, pues. Como una historia de superhéroes. Según la descripción de Poppy misma "es la respuesta a las preguntas que le hacen sobre su origen". Bueno, obviamente no es sobre Poppy LA PERSONA, sino sobre EL PERSONAJE. Pero aún así por primera vez tenemos un canon coherente y una guía de los arcos narrativos. La historia es contada a cuatro voces, por diferentes perspectivas de personajes que simbolizan una postura acerca de lo que es el "misterio" de Poppy. A través de esto vemos las varias versiones de como ven exteriormente a Poppy: como una curiosidad anómala, como una oportunidad de redención, como una sirena de control mental, como un ángel anarquista cuya arma es la inocencia, muy a lo Rosseau, como un símbolo de lo superficialidad de la cultura actual, como una burla al stablishment o como un método interesante de marketing. Pero la broma es que las pocas veces que se le permite a Poppy expresar sus propios motivos nos queda claro que ella solo trata de expresarse de la manera que entiende, y que todo lo anterior es más bien lo que queremos ver. Ella es solamente un espejo de nosotros, como espectadores/consumidores, que le imponemos un significado. En cierto momento dice "Quiero ser yo". Mientras todo esto nos van aclarando pequeños misterios del canon en forma de easter eggs: quienes son ELLOS, los creadores de Poppy, por qué Planta habla con la voz de Poppy, por qué Charlotte envidia tanto a Poppy, por qué sus vídeos tienen el mismo fondo, por qué le fue cambiando la voz, por qué no parece haber una secuencia lógica en el avance de los arcos narrativos, etc. Aún así, muchas preguntas nuevas se originan y esa debe ser la idea. El libro no sólo sirve de verdadera introducción a las narrativas (y de hecho da ciertas respuestas), sino da una interpretación del mensaje desde un canon único, lo cual es muy arriesgado porque Poppy funcionaba hasta este momento en la interpretación personal (de hecho, mucho de los arcos de Computer Boy y la Agente Mariah Spears se basan precisamente en lo que te lleva la interpretación personal). Sin embargo, el fin del libro, que corresponde mucho al ciclo presente de Time Is Up-Choke y lo que ya conocemos ahora de manera canónica como Poppy X (la versión actual de Poppy). Es decir, el libro termina en las narrativas en que estamos ahora. Es una experiencia. ¿Es una esclava o nuestra libertadora? preguntaba Time Is Up, bueno, quizá ambas o ninguna. Es Poppy.

    This graphic novel is by one of my favourite singers, Poppy. It explains Poppy, who and what she is and where she is from, which were very popular questions back in 2015, when she went viral on YouTube. Many YouTubers like PewDewPie, Elise Ecklund, Reaction Time (etc...) have reacted to her and I think this graphic novel would benefit them, since they got the whole thing wrong. It also made me understand the whole Poppy thing.

    Definitely in my top five favorite graphic novels. The story is intriguing all on its own, but the pictures really make everything pop. It's truly as unique as it gets when it comes to a story like this. I highly recommend even if you have no idea who Poppy is, because this is the true story of who Poppy is. You'll learn everything you need to know with this.

    I am a huge poppy fan and this book did not disappoint me at all. It’s just like the rest of Poppy’s quality content. The art was amazing. The colours went really well together which made it look aesthetically pleasing and put together. The facial expressions of the characters were drawn beautifully. There are so many small details in this book and I am sure I missed a dozen of them but the ones I saw made me look at the page in pure amazement. The storyline was great.

This book tells you so much more about poppy and who she is. The story was slightly confusing at times which is totally Poppy’s style. I found it a little weird that there was so much cussing in the book because in her videos poppy tends to stay away from that. But later on I found that the cussing made some paragraphs a lot more powerful. The ending was incredibly creative and totally Poppy’s style. I could totally see a sequel/prequel for this book. The book is rather expensive, especially with shipping fees, but I would say that it’s worth every penny. I think people who don’t know poppy can read this although in my opinion it is probably best to read it after you’ve gotten to know poppy at least a little bit. Make sure you listen to “I C U” by poppy while reading. It makes the book come to life.
