Once again, Lucy Knisley delivers a heartfelt, funny, and honest look at life as only she can. Fans of Knisley have followed her journey through motherhood across social media for a few years now, and the antics of her little bundle of joy "Pal". In Kid Gloves, Knisely shows the heartbreak that followed a miscarriage, her journey through self doubt, and anxiety over her preparedness for it all. Anyone who has had children can relate to all of these moments, and the endless joy and love that having a child brings. I love this book. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

McGuire uses time as a way to show one place in various eras, even eons. It is a graphic novel with few words that gives perspective on our place in the world and how place is shaped by the passing of time. ~ Reviewed by Percy Sutton


Box Brown in Conversation

Notes from the Shire by Chris L

 

I’ve been a huge fan of Box Brown’s work for quite a few years now. His graphic novels, illustrated with his trademark cartoon style, always seem to appeal to my exact niche interests. Pro wrestling, videogames, stand up comedy, and more weave their way into and out of Brown’s work. I was lucky enough to recently talk with Box about his past, present, and future.

This is a graphic novel that uses the poetry of Han Shan and Shih Te to tell the story of these two scoundrels. That is, if they existed. While it is romantic to think they put their poetry on trees, rocks and caves, more likely they are a collaboration of many people That aside, this is some of the poetry that would influence the Beats, the Dharma Bums (yes that Dharma Bum) and countless people who felt "off the norm." Told in both words and images, this is a book that needs to be experienced as you take your own journey into the world of Zen. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
