Multcolib Picks: A novel idea with graphic content
Annotation:Do you like weird westerns? I do, religiously, and this is a great book to start with if you want to explore that sub-genre. I love this series, and you will too if you enjoy your zombies/horror with some holsters and spurs!
Annotation:Kiernan is an excellent novelist and short story writer who has dabbled in comics with Sandman and others. This title takes the original character from her novels, Dancy Flammarion, and makes her dance in comic format thanks to the blistering art by Steve Lieber (yeah Portland!)
Annotation:Confused, perhaps angry at your options (or lack thereof) from the Affordable Care Act? Be thankful the protagonist of this series isn’t one of your options. Seifert used to be the assistant to Brian Michael Bendis when he taught at PSU and has obviously learned much as evident in this original horror-action title.
Annotation:“When Nicole Georges was two years old, her family told her that her father was dead. When she was twenty-three, a psychic told her he was alive. Her sister, saddled with guilt, admits that the psychic is right and that the whole family has conspired to keep him a secret.“
Annotation:Failin was once a thriving logging community. Now the town’s businesses are crumbling, its citizens bitter and disaffected. Anne and Lewis refuse to succumb to the fate of the older generation as they discover—together—the secrets of their hometown and their own families.
Annotation:A 24-foot-long black-and-white drawing printed on heavyweight accordian-fold paper and packaged in a deluxe hardcover slipcase. The set also includes a 16-page booklet featuring an essay about the first day of the Battle of the Somme by Adam Hochschild and original annotations to the drawing by Sacco himself.
Annotation:Inspired by one of the world's greatest novels, Ohio artist Matt Kish began illustrating Herman Melville's classic, creating an image a day over the next eighteen months based on text selected from every page of the 552-page Signet Classics paperback edition.
