Factory Summers (Drawn & Quarterly) – Guy Delisle

In Pyongyang, Guy Delisle took you inside a North Korean animation studio. In the newly-released Factory Summers, Guy takes us inside the Quebec City paper mill where he worked in his youth. It’s Delisle’s most personal book to date, and maybe the only one that has something in common with Moby Dick!

Sogni Strani – Jerome Gaynor

You know what’s lame? When someone tries to tell you about their dreams. Amazingly, when Jerome Gaynor does it in comic form in his new book Sogni Strani, the results are pretty fantastic. That’s because he’s got his dream-recording method down to a science, which is one of the things we talk to him about on this episode of BUY THIS COMIC!
