Not just black and white

Boston Globe – “The graphic novel is much more than a slightly longer comic book, or even the comic’s smarter cousin. It’s a vehicle for artists of different stripes, with or without excessive drafting ability, to reveal something of their imaginations and their visions of the world with untold levels of quirkiness and, at times, poetic immediacy. The doubleness of the best graphic novels, following the profound (though wordless) precedent of artists like Frans Masereel and Lynd Ward while also paying homage, by definition, to the panel-bound virtuosic escapism of traditional comic books, is on triumphant display in five recently published works.”
