Good evening folks !
Tonight I’d like to tell you about a graphic novel which I read a few months ago and which really became a contemporary classic in the graphic novels’ world: Blankets by Craig Thompson.
This book was published in 2003 in the United States by the publishing house Top Shelf Productions. It is an autobiographical graphic novel (surprising, isn’t it?) in which Craig Thompson narrates his childhood with very conservative Christian parents and his first love story as a teenager. It won numerous awards, including three Harvey Awards (Best Artist, Best Graphic Album of Original Work and Best Cartoonist) and two Eisner Awards in 2004.
