Here (Pantheon Graphic Novels) (Hardcover)
One word. Whoa.
I’m going to have to reread that. Is read the right word though? View. Experience. Follow. Live. I don’t want to re…whatever it because it’s confusing, by the way. No. It’s wonderful. It’s the kind of wonderful that fragments reality, piece by tiny glass piece, so that by the time you close the book it just barely dawns on you that your mind is irrevocably blown. Life has taken on a new depth, it has expanded to include many worlds that you’d never considered before.
This is just so amazing. This is life.— From Zazu's Past Picks 1
From one of the great comic innovators, the long-awaited fulfillment of a pioneering comic vision. Richard McGuire's Here is the story of a corner of a room and of the events that have occurred in that space over the course of hundreds of thousands of years. (With full-color illustrations throughout.)
