    Year One was drawn by Mazzucchelli, he's so great. His anthology Rubber Blanket was too short lived.

    I liked Maus and Persepolis.

    My friend's husband writes a series called Chew and it won best new series and Comic-Con. I read it and it's dark but funny. And weird.

    Got a couple of books from the library yesterday, and read three graphic novels today. Asterios Polyp was great, I think some of the art/music/philosophy terms went over my head. My husband is reading it now. Pyongyang was a true story of an animator's stay in North Korea. Very interesting and depressing, but the narrator seemed like an ass some of the time. My final book for the day was Elk's Run, a story about a group of Vietnam war vets who live in their own little city in West Virginia. I wish it was longer.

    Earlier this week I read a collection of short stories by Yoshihiro Tatsumi, who is said to be the father of serious Japanese comics. Depressing as fuck, with a very disturbing scene with a dog. I don't think I'll read more from him.

    I started reading Barefoot Gen, a story of a boy who survived the Hiroshima bomb, but I could only find the first 6 books. I can't wait to read the last four.

    graphic by far for me was Exquisite Corpse by Poppy Z Brite and Snuff by Adam Huber & Eric Enck.
