While I mainly blog about book-related topics, I also blog about the Arts and Subscription Boxes. The artwork is raw and muted, which seems to be a reflection of Hatter Madigan himself. One hundred percent rage and violence, Hollow-Eyed Mary is a brutal, vivid tale of a woman wronged and killed, and back for revenge.

Now academia embraces and celebrates them, too. Out of all the graphic novels I read it was A family Secret and the Search that affected me the most, I found myself welling up whilst reading, this was in part due to my being a massive Tintin fan and seeing similar much-loved artwork being used to illustrate a heartbreaking story, these books are also the most positive, sad as they are. Holly and Peter fall in love on an airplane, but other relationships and circumstances keep them apart for many years.

What is being listed are graphic novels that take a long time to read -- ones that have the heft of a novel in terms of time it takes to read them (putting aside the issue of artistic merit or lack thereof). The first issue gives enough meat to keep the reader coming back for more. The blue fish, in two panels and the background image on 104 and in one panel on the following page, seems to be a figment of the character’s imagination, a non sequitur that distracts from the story.

In early societies the minstrel might be a courtier of the king or chieftain, and the poet who composed liturgies might be a priest. Thus, it may be necessary to help children learn how to understand the “grammar” of the panels in a graphic novel. Sometimes it's known as the Greek blues.” The idea, he goes on, is to sing about “the pain of exile, the romance of the ports, the swoops and flights of the nighthawks and their ill-starred loves; their failure and their humor.” My kind of music, in other words, fueled by hash and booze and a sense that, for the duration of a song, at least, one's daily degradations might be washed away.
