“This is an excellent work.
Reviews for this book are rolling in at quite a clip!
“Highly successful both as literature and visual art, this is a book to recommend to abuse survivors as well as readers who appreciate exploring life’s difficult realities.”
“touching story of trust and betrayal.”
“It’s a strong and important book, and above all, yet another testament to the power of this medium.”
Time Out NY says of Moresukine:
“Hilarious, sharply observed”
“Reading one of Geary’s books is always a delight. He methodically researches and then displays the facts of whatever crime he is exploring, deploying a hypnotic drawing style that has both charm and menace. “
and about Happy Hooligan:
“Opper’s strip was the first to deploy all of the medium’s basic ingredients from its very birth. “
So, I just got back from three weeks in California and Oregon (and a night in Philadelphia when my flight got cancelled), and I didn’t draw a thing the whole time. Now, it’s back to work. I’ve got a little more than a chapter left and I’m hoping I can get it done pretty quickly.
Anyway, here’s a page from the beginning of the book. It comes right after the page I posted back in November. It’s from the first chapter and introduces Turkmenistan and what life is like there. I’ll be posting more in the next few weeks.
Hope everyone had happy holidays and a good start to the new year.
“[The two volumes] taken together offer a glimpse of the world that is not heavy handed or soft pedaled, but in its greatest moments, like any great work of art, it is possible to hold the pages up and through them, see the world.”
And Dungeon Monstres vol.1 is recommended by Library Media Connection.
