And now for your reading pleasure, I present a small smorgasbord of links:
“Animator and comics artist Guy Delisle’s travelogue Shenzhen is a fascinating, meandering look at one of China’s most storied new cities…[It is] a really lovely, idiosyncratic, first hand warts-and-all account of the city as seen through the eyes of foreigner.”
“Raymond Briggs’ Gentleman Jim is an easy, accessible work for both casual comics fans and the reviewer. Originally released in Great Britain in 1980, it’s one of a series of works by the esteemed cartoonist that is clearly a precedent for modern graphic novels… It’s the subtle visual and character touches that distinguish Gentleman Jim from most same-era graphic novels, and make it worth a look at for the history represented by such an approach at that time, as well as the pleasure for reading it oneself.”
