blankets.

The beautifully illustrated graphic novel Blankets by Craig Thompson is a wonderful ride. I picked it up a while back at work and opened it to a super-over-the-top-teenage-love moment and wasn't too sure if it was something I wanted to read at all. Finally gave it a try and it sucked me in. The illustrations are enough, almost 600 pages worth of small panel masterpieces. While some of the story is too much like songs sensitive high school boys write, it doesn't really matter when you're in the story. You relate to what you've felt before and ignore the fact that out of context some of it would make for a good laugh.
