MAR101136 MOVING PICTURES GN 14.95
This little graphic novella from Kathryn & Stuart Immonen actually debuted back at TCAF last month, but is now available in better stores everywhere. I’ve just finished it and it’s quite good, and a little unexpected. A short, sharp, literary piece about World War II and the lengths to which two people bound by obligation will go.
FEB100245 NEIL YOUNGS GREENDALE HC (MR) 19.99
The other big Canadian graphic novel of the week, though this one more nominally so… NEIL YOUNG’S GREENDALE has been in the works since the album itself, an adaptation, expansion, and exploration of Young’s rock-opera. Not for nothing, but the reason I’m coming to this work is definitely Cliff Chiang’s art. Chiang is truly incredible (you may remember him from Human Target) and I think this is his longest single work to date. Good stuff.
APR100997 STARDROP GN VOL 01 (C: 0-1-2) 9.95
New original-ish graphic novel from THIEVES AND KINGS creator Mark Oakley, collected short strips and clips that appeared online and gathered together into a book.
APR101063 HOW I MADE IT TO EIGHTEEN GN (MR) 16.99
This one has some buzz behind it, in a sort of “Fun Home” kind of a way. Memoir of trouble youth, mainstream publishing house, I’m kinda curious to see what it looks like as I’ve seen hide-nor-hair of it so far.
APR100860 POWER OUT GN 9.95
Xeric-grant winning independent comic that’s advertising alllllll over the internet. Curious for that alone.
NOV090041 BLACKSAD HC VOL 01 (C: 0-1-2) 29.99
Finally, the only furry comic that’s generally socially acceptable to own! Kidding, kidding, the whole thing is a gorgeous and well-liked crime noir series that’s been incredibly difficult to find… until now!
