Ivy; Sarah Oleksyk

Ivy is a newish hardcover graphic novel from Oni Press that collects the five issues of Sarah Oleksyk's mini comic of the same name. Ivy is about Ivy, and is a coming of age story about teenage girl who aspires to be an artist.










Anyone who remembers high school and wasn't amongst the popular in crowd will relate to Ivy's journey. Though that period in our lives may not have always been what we wanted it to be and can be painful to reflect upon, reading Sarah Oleksyk's Ivy isn't just an angst driven experience and her art (as seen here) is a delight through and through.
