Habibi by Craig Thompson

Blankets by Craig Thompson was a magical and painful thing. I also remember there being a lot of snow. His new book is Habibi, and it looks more magical, and possibly more painful. In her description, Laura Miller throws around words like semi-fantastical, skyscrapers, Dumas, calligraphy, and camels. Other graphic novels are also talked about. They look amazing. But I don't know as much about them. Except for The Arctic Marauder which I reviewed for Strange Horizons.

  1. Oh man, he was in my local bookstore a couple days ago but I missed him on account of work + wake. :|

  2. Wakes are important. Especially for generous people.

    Doors to nowhere behind refrigerators should be checked regularly in case of nowhere, sometimes, being somewhere.

    Stay safe out there, friend person.

  3. I've been meaning to get to these and now I've moved them to the top of my list (after I finish the books I have out from the library of course :)
    I've been on a graphic novel kick lately and this review definitely made me want to go read these!

    I just read Zita the Spacegirl and I think you would like it :)
