Okay, so it's the complete text of the iTunes Terms & Conditions User Agreement. But also: It's a stunning visual history of comics art by a virtuoso artist. Every page is re-imagined from a page of classic or contemporary comics, paying faithful homage to the original artists' style. It's beautifully bonkers, and delightful game of "identify the artist."

A gorgeous graphic novel about the power of creativity and escapism...and the dangers that lie within each. The fantastical illustrations, filled with strange creatures and rendered in jewel-like colors, beg to be pored over. Alvarez’s slim graphic novel will entice fans of Pearson’s Hilda, Over the Garden Wall, and Song of the Sea and leave them begging for another installment.

A stunning new graphic memoir of loss and grief. Tom Hart (Hutch Owen) and Leela Corman (Unterzakhn) are two cartoonists on the brink of financial ruin, planning a new start in Gainesville--until all their plans are blown apart by the abrupt death of their two-year-old daughter. This book wrecked me for days.
