Deforge imagines a bird utopia on the moon, and it’s full of teenage angst. Weird, fungal illustrations and ironic avian dialogue make this graphic novel well suited for bird lovers and connoisseurs of leftist satire, surrealism, and jokes about cloacae.
An phenomenal tale of visual storytelling. For those with active mind's eyes, every page explodes with possibility. As much a piece of artwork as a book.
Funny meets violent in this wonderful graphic novel about a Chinese-American family with a past full of magic, mystery, and casual violence (but in like... a fun way...). Twins, Milly and Billy, are having a tough time keeping their restaurant afloat. Luckily their parents, Ipo and Keon, are in town for their annual visit. Ipo and Keon have supported their children through thick and thin and are ready to lend a hand—but they're starting to wonder if their support has made the twins incapable of standing on their own. When Ipo forces them to help her clean up the house next door—a hellish and run-down ruin that was the scene of a grisly murder—the twins are in for a nasty surprise. A night of terror, gore, and supernatural mayhem reveals that there is much more to Ipo and her children than meets the eye.

Something like an orchestra reduced to a piano sonata, Heuet’s adaptation of the first volume of In Search of Lost Time combines the beauty and intent of Proust’s words (often quoted verbatim) with dreamlike graphics that capture the reverie of the original.

Part journey of self-discovery, part mysticism, all love and appreciation of language.
