How The World Was: A California Childhood & other GREAT graphic novels this week of 8/6/14!
Alan Cope, befriended French cartoonist Emmanuel Guibert in the late 1990s and How The World Was is about his growing up in Southern California prior to World War II. Cope, was also the subject of Alan's War (about his World War II experiences). Both How The War Was and Alan's War can be read independently of each other and they are both fantastic accounts of a quiet life, richly lived. Like Harvey Pekar's American Splendor, Guibert's How The World Was (and Alan's War) don't have as their subject matter sensationalistic heroic or tragic events, but that doesn't mean that Alan Cope's life was any less wonderful. Highest possible recommendation from Ich Liebe Comics! and Alternate Reality Comics!
As if the release of How The World Was isn't reason for living unto itself, just look at all of these other great, varied graphic novels that are on this weeks menu! A new Thanos graphic novel by creator, Jim Starlin!! Two beautiful graphic novels illustrated by P. Craig Russell!! This display is like an early gift giving suggestion for that special someone in your life, including yourself!
