September's Sanity Saver (say that three times fast) is a collection of interwoven stories we have recently brought into our home.
''Building Stories'' by Chris Ware comes in a board game sized box and is filled with a variety of graphic novels. Each one telling a story that is weaves into the next through different comic methods.
These stories really sucker punched me. I am all for getting lost into story-lines and drifting away but this was ridiculous. The thoughts, ideas and even occurrences correlating to the characters, particular that of the main protagonist (of course), really got to me. I have either experienced or had these very same thoughts - and I have a feeling you have too.
It's art. It's universal stories. It's an inventive masterpiece.
I loved them. But don't listen to me as I cannot do it justice - check it out for yourself.
Not an instructional blog but the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth - so help me Mom.
