Lost Dogs by Jeff Lemire
I picked up this short graphic novel on a whim at the public library, and I must say that I am very impressed by this underrated book- in fact, this is personally, probably my favorite graphic novel. I love Lemire's deft style of drawing in the sense that he uses only the colors red, white, and black. It truly adds to the grit and emotion of the plot, in which a giant and his family move to a city from their humble farm only to experience tragedy firsthand. This is definitely a must-read for anyone who loves an emotional, heart-wrenching story.
