David Mazzucchelli - Asterios Polyp

There has been a lot of hype and excitement about this book so I ordered it nice and early and hoped I wouldn’t be disappointed. I haven’t read anything else by Mazzucchelli so didn’t know what to expect. It’s very good I am pleased to say. The drawing is wonderful and the story is exceedingly well crafted, full of circular references. Everything has meanings and comes back later in the story. It’s surprisingly sweet too and a really nice read, it’s funny too. Highly recommended.
