Rusty’s Comic Reading List 2016 | November 29, 2016

secretpath

This is a simply amazing read. This is the story of Chanie Wenjack, a young boy who left a residential school and tried to go home. He did not make it. It is a true story and it is created here by Gord Downie’s poetry and Jeff Lemire’s illustration as a reminder  that this happened. This really happened. In enlightened Canada.

This is a beautiful book. Downie is an accomplished poet. I have said in the past that I was a fan of Lemire’s writing but not his art. Here, it is perfect of the subject matter.

I can’t imagine that this won’t be my top comic of the year. Brilliant and compelling.
