I know he’s in Japan, but this piece in the Toronto Globe and Mail has a very Chris Butcher vibe to it. (That’s a good thing.) It’s a really solid list of recommended graphic novels for younger readers from graphica reviewer Nathalie Atkinson. (It seems like a list that would also serve adult readers perfectly well.)
And let me just say, I’m so damned happy to see Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms (Last Gasp) get this kind of high-profile attention that I barely know what to do with myself. Seriously. You’ve read it, right?
