“Late last night I started a new graphic novel. To my surprise, I couldn’t fall asleep until I found out whether the short talking pig [sic, actually a dog] was able to build his giant love-mobile and the shady goth cat had a change of heart.
A near-perfect book.
I was delighted by the art, which has been compared to Bill Plympton but reminded me of another French export: 2003’s Oscar-nominated The Triplets of Belleville.
I can think of nothing better than another late night filled with pigs in overalls and bulls wearing AC/DC T-shirts. As soon as I can pre-order Vol. 2, I’m on it.”

And on this same book the Cleveland Plain Dealer chimes in calling it ‘delightful.’
“Speaking of great art, you can’t go wrong with Geary — his work displays a humor, style and class that make it instantly recognizable. This latest book adds an element of horror, though: It tells the compelling, bizarre story of a series of brutal murders in New Orleans that seem connected (but are they?). While the ending may not satisfy everyone, the art should immerse readers instantly and show that the story is best told in graphic-novel form.”

Why I like it: Sometimes, the best information I get at Comic-Con comes from just strolling around and chatting with people. While wandering the convention floor, I started hearing buzz about Kleid’s new graphic novel, a tale that begins at a rabbi’s funeral. Rabbi Kahn’s grieving family is shocked to learn that the man they love wasn’t who they thought he was — and each family member reacts in a very specific, yet different, way. I almost missed my subway stop because I was so engrossed in this book, which weaves issues of family, faith and morality. (There’s also a glossary in the back, if you’re not too familiar with Jewish culture.) And though it touches on some heavy themes, it has lighter (and even sexier!) moments, too.
Why you’ll like it: Because you love Catch Me If You Can and stories about con men. Because, even though you have enough family drama at home, you still can’t get enough of it.
