Blankets

Author(s): Craig Thompson

Graphic Novels

First UK publication for this modern classic

'It's beautifully written and drawn, it's very poetic and very romantic. I highly recommend it.' ELENA FAVILLI

'Moving, tender, beautifully drawn, painfully honest and probably the most important graphic novel since Jimmy Corrigan.' NEIL GAIMAN

'Blankets is a classic in every genre it touches.' STEPHEN CHBOSKY, author of The Perks of Being a Wallflower

'One of the greatest love stories ever written and surely the best ever drawn.' JOSS WHEDON

Wrapped in the snowfall of a blustery Midwestern winter, Blankets is the tale of two brothers growing up in rural isolation, and of the budding romance between two young lovers. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith, Blankets is a profound and utterly beautiful work.
