BOOK CLUB: THE WHALE

    who says comics are just for kids?

    by · September 23, 2010
    In her debut graphic novel The Whale, 22-year-old artist Aidan Koch manages to conjure up some major emotions with barely any words. Instead, her drawings take center stage. It’s the first release from Gaze Books, an indie publishing company recently founded by comic artist Blaise Larmee. In Koch’s book, we’re presented with issues like love, loss, and dealing with harsh realities, all within the context of nature. Trust us, it’s a complex story under a deceptively simple guise.Plus, it’s only about 60 pages- the perfect length, because this is one book that begs to be read over and over again. Available in October from Gaze.
