    Very much enjoyed it Good, clear, compelling storytelling It s obvious to see why the author is an Eisner award winner.It has a nice modern teenage storyline, but the paralell 1800 s teen storyline really makes it into sometime amazing The dollop of the fantastic in there or magical realism, if you insist on the term sealed the deal for me, bumping it up from a great story to a truly excellent one.My only regret is that I don t think I can give this one to my little boy quite ...

    Okay, so What did I just readI rarely read graphic novels any The main reason I read this one was that I had nothing else to read But wow. The storyline seems like it could be alright, and the fact that it took place in Canada made me happy, because let s face it I m from Canada, and we are pretty much invisible to any kind of media So let...

    Graphic novels intimidate me In the same way I m intimidated my new technology Or teenagers, even They seem elusive, somehow Difficult to capture I can try to understand them, but I end up feeling like I ve missed something.I think one reason for this is that where a traditional novel develops plot and character through words, graphic novels do this through images And a picture truly is worth a thousand words here A lot depends on a single frame You have to pay attention, and you also ha Graphic novels intimidate me In the same way I m intimidated my new technology Or teenagers, even They seem elusive, somehow Difficult to capture I can try to understand them, but I end up feeling like I ve missed something.I think one reason for this is that where a traditional novel develops plot and character through words, graphic novels do this through images And a picture truly is worth a thousand words here A lot depends on a single frame You have to pay attention, and you also have to be willing to take a leap of faith and assume a lot from what each sequence is telling you.That leap of faith was well worth taking with Hope Larson and her award winning graphic novel, Mercury The book is set in a small town in Nova Scotia, French Hill But it takes place in two different time periods In one, dark haired Josey farms with her family on their mid nineteenth century homestead She is beg...
