Graphic Novel Spotlight: Korgi

In my continuing quest to share the best graphic novels, I'd like to introduce you to one of the more undervalued tales.

Korgi book 1: Sprouting Wings
by Christian Slade

This is probably the most complex plot I've seen in a wordless book. In spite of not having a single word of text (not even sound words) Korgi has a clear plot line and an extensive cast of characters. My library unfortunately only has the first volume of this fantastic series. Our young patrons don't let that stop them, as it has a satisfying story arc in this one book. Even if that were not the case, this book is worthwhile just for the illustrations. Each panel is filled with detailed ink line drawings. This is one to linger over.

Just look at those details
