Rocketo... my new secret pleasure

Great graphic novel/ comic book done in a stellar style by Frank Espinosa. I found this little gem on my way back from the Roseann Hebeler Brown show in Ann Arbor over the weekend. Not that I've had much time to read this book or really soak up some of the great imagery in it, but Rocketo- Journey to the Hidden Sea is killer. The drawings are expressive, fluid and has a flair I haven't seen in a long while. The slap dash coloring of the book is painterly and yet remarkably intuitive. I'm lugging this little gem to class and recommending it to all.
