    I’d somehow never heard of this book before, but love graphic novels as a rule. My husband checked it out from the U of T library sans dust jacket, so we didn’t have a cover to give us any clues to go by either. I read it in an evening and completely loved it. Glad it’s getting so much buzz.

    Thanks for the comment.

    This book has been the single-most recommended book of this project so far. I have had to send a few different ‘sorry but Dan Wagstaff has already recommended that book’ emails to saddened writers who have each vowed acts of sinister retribution.

    It’s a great book and I recommend that people go and buy a copy first before even thinking about who to give it to and then, ultimately, just keeping it for themselves.
