Jeffrey Brown - "Little Things"
I also loved his first book "Clumsy"
A fun factoid about Tezuka is that he was in school to become a doctor, his writing often reflects a medical undertone. This book was also an epic journey:I'm sure you can tell by the title that the content is very serious. These books follow 3 characters with the name Adolf. I've read a ton of Tezuka... I don't want to blow my wad on this one post. Let's move on shall we.
I love stories about places or people I know. Yes, it actually does happen. I recently read Mimi Pond's Over Easy. A graphic novel about Mimi's time living in Oakland and working at Mama's Royal Cafe in the 70's.
When the book ended, I was wondering why there wasn't more. I would have been happy to just keep reading and reading. I also enjoy the color pallet that Pond uses and how it all just seemed so familiar.
Y The Last Man is another series that I started but haven't finished yet. It's an tale of everyone with a Y chromosome dies off except for one man and his monkey.
The series is 10 books of adventure and amazonian women. That is all I will say about that.
Okay.. that's enough for now.
