Asterios Polyp

I have to post about this great new graphic novel by David Mazzuchelli, cartoonist extraordinaire. David has an unusual history as a comics artist, he started with Marvel, did Daredevil and Batman comics, and moved on to be one of the most thoughtful "indy" cartoonists around. He draws beautifully, and finds the exact style appropriate to whatever story he is telling.

Calvin interviewed designer Chip Kidd and Pantheon editor Dan Frank talking about this fabulous book in PWCW. And If you're in NY, go to MoCCA to see an exhibition of David's work.
