Blankets by Craig Thompson

A young boy hides under the blankets from his abusive father. Later in life, blankets become linked with his first love and the time they spend together.

This graphic memoir surpasses typical coming-of-age stories, both in its masterful plot and with the multi-dimensional perspective that only a comic book can provide.

The result is powerful and mesmerizing.
