A Graphic NovelComic Book - 2003
"...A rarity: a first-love story so well remembered and honest that it reminds you what falling in love feels like. ...achingly beautiful." - Time magazine
A brand-new, hardcover edition, re-sized and with a new cover! 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. A profound and utterly beautiful work from Craig Thompson.
At 592 pages, Blankets may well be the single largest graphic novel ever published without being serialized first.

Blankets: Not only a great read for the Autumn, but also one of the most heartfelt and poignant graphic novels I have ever read.
It doesn't always have to be mutants and superheroes to be a great comic book! :)
