IDW - TOP SHELF
(W/A/CA) Jeff Lemire
This critically-acclaimed graphic novel was recently chosen as one of Canada Reads' Top 5 Essential Canadian Novels of the Decade, and it is also the winner of the American Library Association's Alex Award, the Doug Wright Award, as well as the Joe Shuster Award. Set in an imaginary version of Jeff Lemire's hometown, Essex County is an intimate study of an eccentric farming community, and a tender meditation on family, memory, grief, secrets, and reconciliation. With the lush, expressive inking of a cartoonist at the height of his powers, Lemire draws us in and sets us free.
