<em>Two Brothers</em>: Putting the "novel" in "graphic novel"
Two Brothers By Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba Based on the novel The Brothers , by Milton Hatoum Published by Dark Horse Comics Comics don't get much more "literary" than this, do they? Of course, this book borrows its pedigree somewhat from the source material...

Thanks, Rollo! I appreciate you sending me that link to the article with more information; it's always fascinating to learn about the story behind a comic like this, especially with a legend like Kubert.
Elsewhere: I don't think I've linked to this yet: I reacted with revulsion to the season premiere of True Beauty, which means I might or might not keep watching. That's summer TV for you. Links: Ed Piskor is posting the enti...

I read it all through nonstop in about two weeks but then caught up. I think it was the catching up and waiting that made it hard to get past it. I should read them again, because they're pure inspiration in a bottle and would get me pumped up about comics more.
