A quick but masterful graphic novel told as three short stories. The Werewolf at Dusk is about the changes an aging werewolf goes through. Still able to change at the full moon, yet hardly able to chase a squirrel or climb up stairs. A Walk in the Old City is about a shrink who loses his way at night. Attempting to psycho-analyze himself will not getting him out of the mess he stumbles across. The final story is The Tiger in Vogue which is a terrifyingly whimsical look at Hitler's rise to power in Germany. Unique and wonderful storytelling in that one. Fantastic illustrations grace the pages of all three stories. I wish it were longer!… (lisätietoja)

A quick read, lots of rich imagery. I'm enamored by Small's gorgeous line work.
Reminds me of Asterios Polyp, maybe because of all that imagery and the heavy themes

3 short stories linked "by the dread of things internal," masterfully told in graphic format from award-winning author/illustrator David Small. An aging werewolf; a weary psychologist finds himself in a strange dream with giant spiders; a man in 1920s Berlin does not enjoy a theater act in which an actual tiger performs under the precariously dangerous control of Hitler.

Unsurprisingly, the artwork is terrific and the stories compellingly told.… (lisätietoja)

Imogene wakes up one morning and discovers she has grown antlers overnight. As one might imagine, this causes some difficulties. Her family reacts in a variety of ways, and work on a solution to the perceived problem.

Delightful, and funny, with plenty of amusing detail in the background of each illustration.
