Habibi by Craig Thompson
Last months UP selection. I should've read this a long time ago. I find it's jerky layers of different genres and stories to be a bit frustrating, but wildly brilliant. Moore's character development seems to constantly draw upon his experimentation with form. There is, in my opinion, no better (and more thoughful) use of the graphic novel genre, in it's treatment of nuclear disaster, self-reliant/fascism and the postmodern narcissist.
