*Blankets by Craig Thompson*

Blankets by Craig Thompson - Art by Craig Thompson - Published by Top Shelf Productions.

Blankets is my personal favorite graphic novel, if you grew up going to church and being a member of a youth group you may find this novel extremely relatable. I found myself captivated by the authors words and the beautiful illustrations. The book rings a tone of truth as the character progresses in age and the story is best described as subtle genius. Blankets (New Hardcover Edition) - Rudie Rating ★★★★★ (Excellent)

"A rarity: a first-love story so well remembered and honest that it reminds you what falling in love feels like … achingly beautiful." -- Time Magazine

"Blankets is a great American novel." -- Andrew D. Arnold,

"Thompson manages to explore adolescent social yearnings, the power of young love and the complexities of sexual attraction with a rare combination of sincerity, pictorial lyricism and taste." -- Publishers Weekly

"I thought it was moving, tender, beautifully drawn, painfully honest, and probably the most important graphic novel since Jimmy Corrigan." -- Neil Gaiman

"This is a genuine graphic novel, with a universal appeal." -- Gordon Flagg, Booklist
