The Color of Heaven

Yesterday the concluding volume of Kim Dong Hwa's manhwa came out titled The Color of Heaven (the first one is The Color of Earth and the second one is The Color of Water) and it is every bit as wonderful as the previous volumes. This trilogy is about a mother and daughter and their relationship with each other, first love, waiting for your love, and the passage of time. I could go on and on about how this beautiful story has such incredibly beautiful art also, but anyone who looks at one of these books will see that. I'd like to thank publisher First Second for bringing this to U.S. audiences because it's manga (or manhwa as this is called being from Korea) like this that perfectly shows the diversity of stories comics (or manga or manhwa) can tell.
