@neilhimself @DarkHorseComics More about King Arthur, what the story means, what's going on under the surface, what those cute little pictures mean. @neilhimself 's CHIVALRY is the kind of book that can be enjoyed on many levels but the more you know, the more fun it is.      источник
Monsters book cover
Barry Windsor-Smith - 2021-04-27
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Monsters" is a stunning graphic novel that delves into themes of trauma, fate, conscience, and redemption. Set in 1964, it follows the story of Bobby Bailey, a damaged and innocent young man who is unwittingly recruited into a secret U.S. government experimental program. As the titular monsters multiply, becoming real and metaphorical, the story reaches its emotional and moral reckoning. This is an ambitious and intense work, with breathtaking visuals and a narrative that spans generations of American history. It is surely one of the most sophisticated and powerful graphic novels ever drawn.
Colleen Doran
I was rooting for Barry Windsor-Smith to win all the Eisner love for MONSTERS, and he sure did. This book is strange, disturbing, dark, intense and unique. Can't recommend it enough.      источник

Red Famine
Stalin's War on Ukraine
Anne Applebaum - 2017-10-10
Рейтинг Goodreads
A shocking and revelatory history of Stalin's devastating policy of agricultural collectivization, which led to one of the deadliest famines in European history. At least five million people died between 1931 and 1933 in the USSR, with more than three million of those deaths deliberately inflicted on Ukrainians. Anne Applebaum's Red Famine documents the horror of ordinary people struggling to survive extraordinary evil and shows how it may foreshadow a new threat to the political order in the twenty-first century.

Рейтинг Goodreads
A poignant romance requiring at least two hankies before the end, The Silver Metal Lover tells the classic tale of transforming love. In a society devastated by pollution and natural disasters, robots have replaced human labor, causing massive unemployment. Jane, a rich, lonely, and insecure 16-year-old, falls passionately in love with a minstrel named Silver, a performing artist and sexual companion designed to entertain human partners. As their relationship deepens, Silver becomes more "human"- a clever illusion created by his programming. But tragedy is inevitable in this unstable world. A must-read for fans of poignant love stories.
Colleen Doran
My cover art for Tanith Lee's THE SILVER METAL LOVER , adapted into a graphic novel by Trina Robbins. The original novel was my favorite book for many years, and it was probably the first major science fiction romance novel. Tanith died in 2015.      источник
