STREAK OF CHALK

 

 

STREAK OF CHALK
Miguelanxo Prado

On the occasion of NBM's 40th anniversary, a classic back in print! A small streak of an island in the Atlantic. On no map. In heavy summer heat. One general store with a woman and her taciturn boy. A lighthouse with no light. Memories and messages graffitied on the pier wall. A chance encounter with a beautiful elusive woman. A Murder. Or was it? Nothing seems completely real. Only the graffitied memories are constant.
A mysterious multifaceted novel steeped in magical realism that can be read a number of ways, Streak of Chalk is one of Spain's best comics authors' magnum opus, and one of the greatest most pioneering graphic novels NBM ever published.
Reviews:
BARNES & NOBLE BEST GN OF SEPTEMBER
"Stands as a stunning example of the unique potential of graphic novels. Prado earns attention honestly. His art is a wonder, and it's striking to see his mastery of different techniques as evidenced in the bonus pages, which give an idea of how much care has been taken to convey a certain mood throughout the book."
-Foreword
"Although the story is sparse, there's intrigue, sex and, more importantly, Spanish artist Prado's sumptuous illustrations and exquisite use of colors, to keep the reader's attention."
-Publishers Weekly
