Three Rocks by Bill Griffith

Staff Pick

"Peanuts tells you what it's like to be a child. Nancy tells you what it's like to be a comic strip,” according to Bill Griffith, whose daily Zippy strip is a surreal source of wonderment in our nation's newspapers. This delightful graphic biography is about Bushmiller's dedicated pursuit of the gag and about how a comic strip can be an imaginative playground. Utilizing Bushmiller's brilliant Nancy strips and his own graphic finesse, Griffith teaches us how it's still possible to find wonderment somewhere between Garfield and Funky Winkerbean.

The Gull Yettin, by Joe Kessler

Staff Pick

Without using a single word, Kessler deploys vivid colors and haphazard drawings to create a graphic masterpiece about a young boy who loses his parents in a fire. Saved by a shapeshifting creature, the protagonist finds an imperfect but loving family, and Kessler powerfully evokes the trajectory of grief using fantastical and visual elements to do the work of narration, a strategy that imbues the book with a rare subjectivity and beauty.
