During my last trip to the Harvard Bookstore, I had a hard time pulling myself away from the graphic novels section, especially after reading The Crackle of the Frost, following an NPR recommendation. I ended up leaving with The Nao of Brown and Tune: Book 1, Vanishing Point, though I would have preferred to buy a bunch more had my budget allowed. Each of these have a compelling stories told with voices that when complemented by the excellent artwork really pull you into the world of the characters circumstances and thoughts.
It’s a great time for graphic novels. This genre/medium is actively expanding an already fantastic range of styles and subject matter. I can’t wait to see what new titles come out in 2013!
