Patience by Daniel Clowes. It’s a story about Jack, a man who lost his wife and can’t feel the true taste of the life. Clowes is good at what he does, in other words a real master. He completely controls the situation and Jack’s life. The author gives readers a lot of information, but at the same time Jack is kept in the dark.

My Favorite Thing Is Monsters, Vol 1 by Emil Ferris. The debut graphic novel of Emil Ferris is a masterpiece. The story takes place in Chicago about forty years ago. The special manner of the author can’t be unnoticed, she is ready to experiment (the main character is shown as a werewolf) and change the style of drawings depend on the narrative (here you will find caricatures, sketches, reproductions of great paintings and many other remarkable things).

Last Look by Charles Burns. It’s an amazing work with a strong backbone and something secret which you can read again and again. The author creates colourful work for the first time and tells the story in a new way, and this fact only proves that the artist knows his job inside out. The story how a young man wakes up for two times in different surroundings isn’t as simple as it seems.

Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier. The graphical novel about two sisters, Catrina and Maya, will make you read without stopping. In search of an easier life girls go to California where they face the shadow of death. Unexpected course of events described by Telgemeier is what you need to create warm and magical atmosphere.

Providence: Act 1 by Alan Moore and Jacen Burrows. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft Moore in collaboration with Burrows create a graphic novel that combines 12 parts. At first glance these parts are disconnected, but it only seems so. Robert Black, a reporter who researches the book about New England, has hard times, as his boyfriend died, and needs to hide his Jewish origin. Add some supernatural environment and you will get a perfect detective story.

Hellboy in Hell: The Death Card by Mike Mignola. Now the artist broads his interest and goes beyond usual things. An adaptation of Irish and French legends and myth is found insufficient by Mingola, so now he builds a new mythological system especially for a character. It’s a difficult assignment, no doubts.

Wonder Woman: The True Amazon by Jill Thompson. This watercolour novel is very readable, and children can completely enjoy it. Frankly speaking, it’s not so clear story, as you may think at fast. Relationships between Diana and her friend express how complicated battlefield romances were. Classical structure and wonderful drawings make you involved in the world of comics.

Carpet Sweeper Tales by Julie Doucet. This product completely differs from everything we have written before. Italian photo comics are something stunning (pictures of famous actors are used in lien of drawn sections). Julie gave a second wind to them and filled speech bubbles with text. You can read a wide range of funny situations about how men and women try to find common ground.

Injection by Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey. If you fond of science fiction, it’s exactly you would like. There are five protagonists who want to find solutions to problems they made. Magic and high technologies are united and coexist here. We are pretty sure you will enjoy adventures of typical heroes.

Howard the Duck by Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones. Both authors say that Howard is an uncommon character. It was created to show the cruelty of the world and its absurdity. In that way we see the real face of a human.

Boy’s Club by Matt Furie. 100% you know Pepe the Frog. Crazy popularity of the character also shocks a creator. In general all Furie’s cartoons may be described as funny, friendly and silly. Nevertheless, read stories carefully, and you will discover something new.
