chernobyl - the zone by natacha bustos and francisco sanchez.
a graphic novel published by centrala a few years ago ... i've been reading it now, for obvious reasons, but i wish i'd discovered it long before. i'm not going to spoiler it, because the story is so affecting, and intelligently crafted in order to speak to every possible reader. It's form, brilliantly, is that of a slavic doll, constantly opening to reveal new characters and ideas and plot lines. the dialogue is sparse but shockingly sharp and right. the art is a mixture of accomplished clean lines and apocalyptic scrawl.
it's a magnificent achievement, a disturbing and moving entertainment with so much to say about now.
