HAPPY NEW YEAR AND A GOOD BOOK


(BELATED)SEASONS GREETINGS! I LOVE TO START THE YEAR WITH A GOOD BOOK (ESPECIALLY A GOOD COMIC BOOK) - THESE ARE SOME OF THE TREATS I GOT AT CHRISTMAS:



A BIT OF POST-APOCALYPTIC GENIUS FROM RAYMOND BRIGGS,


A BUMPER COLLECTION OF VINTAGE HORROR COMICS,



A BOOK ON BALLET TECHNIQUE FROM THE 1940S


AND THE 'PENNY CENTURY' COLLECTION OF THE 'LOVE AND ROCKETS' GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES BY ONE OF MY FAVOURITE ARTISTS OF ALL TIME, JAIME HERNANDEZ. I WOULD SERIOUSLY RECOMMEND THE WORK OF THE HERNANDEZ BROTHERS EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT A FAN OF GRAPHIC NOVELS - AS ALAN MOORE PUTS IT:


"Jaime's art balances big white and black spaces to create a world of nuance in between, just as his writing balances our big human feelings and our small human trivias to generate its incredible emotional power. Quite simply, this is one of the twentieth century's most significant comic creators at the peak of his form, with every line a wedding of classicism and cool."


SO GO AND CHECK HIM OUT! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE X KIM
