Red: A Haida Manga - Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas

Red (Douglas & McIntyre, $22.95), by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, is one of this year’s most unusual books. Unfolding in vibrant, hand-painted pages, it tells the tragic story of a Haida leader who goes to extreme lengths to get revenge on the tribe who kidnapped his sister. Both art and text blend traditional Haida design and contemporary graphic storytelling elements, endowing the characters with extra dynamism. Eschewing word balloons and panel lines, Yahgulanaas breaks new ground in the genre; his book is a blessing to read, and a captivating piece of art.
