ComicsLit Makes 2 of Booklist top ten

NBM’s ComicsLit has gotten 2 of its graphic novels into the prestigious review magazine BOOKLIST top ten:

Miss Don’t Touch Me

“Virginal Florence moves into an upscale brothel in post–Great War Paris to sleuth what she feels was her sister’s murder. In terms of characterization, plot, and setting, and the integration of images and words, graphic novels come no better.”

Ordinary Victories

“Following up discoveries about his late father, photojournalist Marco learns humbling lessons about the malleability of human character while changing his mind about fatherhood. Larcenet’s realist masterpiece ends in peaceful domesticity.”

Only fellow publisher extraordinaire Fantagraphics achieves such an equal honor. Heh.

Reviews: Dungeon Monstres and Ordinary Victories

Ordinary Victories volume 2 “What is Precious” was placed in Comic Book Resources top 100 at #36:

“[The two volumes] taken together offer a glimpse of the world that is not heavy handed or soft pedaled, but in its greatest moments, like any great work of art, it is possible to hold the pages up and through them, see the world.”

And Dungeon Monstres vol.1 is recommended by Library Media Connection.
