Swoon Now! Things To Do In A Retirement Home Trailer Park...
Those good folk at Myriad Editions have sent us the newly published and very well reviewed (see here) Things To Do In A Retirement Home Trailer Park... by Nye Wright. A graphic memoir about dealing with the death of his father it exploits the medium of comics nicely with Spiegelman-esque style of anthropomorphising characters, the stark use of minimal colouring and huge muscular characters that juxtaposes the emotional weight on their shoulders.
There's a nice, long interview with Wright over on BrokenFrontier (see here).
