Graphic Novels

Recently I've read a couple of outstanding graphic novels. Out From Boneville is a wonderful story, good for all ages. It reminded me, at times of Walt Kelly. Smith has an affection for people and his characters and their foibles. I'm going to be reading the rest in this series.

Blankets is another great story. It concerns first love, the cruelty of parents, and coming of age. All those things I'd not read in a book and my wife would have to drag me to the cinema to watch in a movie. Yet, here the form made it something I picked up, and I'm glad I did. Looking forward to his next work. Due to some sex, this one would be for teens and adults in library collections.
