EXCELLENT example of a graphic novel of a young man coming of age. Craig Thompson is a very good draftsman and sensitive storyteller. I'm not surprised that this is one of Time Magazines top 100 best comic books. I DEFINITELY recommend this book.

    This is one of those graphic novels that you recommend to your friend who "Doesn't Like Comics." I can't guarantee that it will convert your friend, but it is a finely realized novel in graphic form. Blankets is Craig Thomson's novel about a boy growing up in a rigidly Christian household. Sometimes comics are weak on the narrative level or the illustration level. Blankets is evenly strong.

    A deep and moving book, "Blankets" is a wonderful introduction to the graphic novel genre. A sort of fictionalized autobiography of the author's childhood and adolescence, it also features great writing and wonderful artwork. But be warned, this book is LONG! Almost 600 pages!
