This was a really sweet graphic short story. I like how the colours and storyline are kind of mellow, but at the same time the lines and words gives a more peculiar, kind of serious feel to it all.
The paper is of very good quality, as is the print itself. I'll definately consider buyng more of these Nobrow graphic short stories. I imagine this would be a nice thing to give to a friend for a special occasion, or perhaps for no special occasion at all.
I am very satisfied with this item!
I know this book will be spending a lot of time in my hands. It's perfect for rainy-day reading and just the sort of still, calming mix of word and image that one needs before falling asleep. Give yourself the pleasures of holding this book in your hands and of being able to pick it up again and again. Your world will be the richer for it. "-What If Knits" Robert Hunter is a trained illustrator who worked with the small-press publisher Nobrow Press to create "The New Ghost." It's a gorgeous piece that plays with color and panel structure. It's an original story, told well, but the best and most unique thing about it is the highly saturated and beautiful artwork. "-Indie Reader" Rob Hunter's art runs against many of the strong currents in the worlds of comics. I know tons of comics that are tough, gritty, funny, gross, goofy, dark, trippy, dystopian, complex, satirical. These aren't bad things at all, but how often do you come across a comic that's light as air, dreamy and poetic? "-Squidface & The Meddler"
