Just So Happens by Fumio Obata
"Lovely, elegant art--pen and ink with watercolors--perfect for the quietly contemplative story of a Japanese woman living in London, who needs to go home to Japan for a family emergency. The action is not the point of the story, but what the return t" Read more of this review »

Marbles in My Underpants by Renée French

Clear rating
I welcome things on the dark side but this left me feeling nauseated and unsatisfied. French has a limited pallet of disgusting images (usually contrasting graphic violence with images of innocence) that she mines endlessly. But she never goes below ...more
Relish by Lucy Knisley
"I picked this up after glowing recommendations from two friends whose opinions I trust. I like food. I like talking about food. I like illustrated things. I am the target market for this type of book.

but unfortunately somehow it never caught fire wit" Read more of this review »
Don't Even Think About It by George  Marshall
"This book is fascinating. It provides the psychology behind why we do nothing about climate change and how we accept or deny facts. Because of this, it is also an insight into the current political climate. I recommend everyone give it a look. It doe" Read more of this review »

"I wish everyone I knew read this book and could come talk to me about it over tea or brunch! Useful, practical, reflective and open-minded, Marshall is a humble guide through our coming challenges, ultimately calling for us to listen more and coopera" Read more of this review »

Rarely have Goodreads been so wrong- the "hive brain" has failed on this one. Lulu Anew is superb, gentle, humane and deeply intelligent. The art is gorgeous - the fresh watercolours perfectly capturing the clear fresh light of the French coast. The ...more

The Incal by Alejandro Jodorowsky

I expected far more considering Incal's reputation. The story is repetitive - some sort of endless quest with attacks and escapes - but dull and aimless with interchangeable cut out characters. The art has some great panels- Moebius is justly famed f ...more

Bumf Vol. 1 by Joe Sacco

Sophomoric and superficial...and incomprehensible coming from someone of such talent who has seen real oppression first hand. Joe Sacco has so much to say in his work that I cannot see why he is fixating on two dimensional token targets . With real o ...more

“The bottom line is that we do not accept climate change because we wish to avoid the anxiety it generates and the deep changes it requires. In this regard, it is not unlike any other major threat. However, because it carries none of the clear markers that would normally lead our brains to overrule our short-term interests, we actively conspire with each other, and mobilize our own biases to keep it perpetually in the background.”
George Marshall, Don't Even Think About It: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change

“The answer to the partisan deadlock and public disinterest starts, I am convinced, with finding new messengers rather than finding new messages, and then creating the means for them to be heard.”
George Marshall, Don't Even Think About It: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change

“This is why I have become convinced that the real battle for mass action will not be won through enemy narratives and that we need to find narratives based on cooperation, mutual interests, and our common humanity.”
