Wrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in the isolated country, and the budding romance of two coming-of-age lovers. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith.

The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 1, The Faust Act by Kieron Gillen: Strange graphic novel, nothing special from the point of view of the illustrations,but it is rather a different discourse regarding the story, but, as innovative as it seem to me, I do not like is that much.
Sailor Twain or The Mermaid in the Hudson by Mark Siegel
Blankets by Craig Thompson is an endearing story of a bullied-all-his-life artist caught in between strict faith, his passion for art, and his love for one girl. Artwork is beautiful, storytelling wonderful, and a very honest and innocent coming-of-age story. Recommended~
