Megan Kelso has proved herself a master of the cartoon short story with
Queen of the Black Black (1998) and The Squirrel Mother
(2006). With Artichoke Tales, six years in the making, Kelso expands
her range (and her page count) by creating a family saga spanning three
generations and an entire continent.
Artichoke Tales is a coming-of-age story about a young girl named
Brigitte whose family is caught between the two warring sides of a civil war, a
graphic novel that takes place in a world that echoes our own, but whose people
have artichoke leaves instead of hair. Influenced in equal parts by Little
House on the Prairie, The Thorn Birds, Dharma Bums, and
Cold Mountain, Kelso weaves a moving story about family amidst war.
Kelso’s visual storytelling, uniquely combining delicate linework with rhythmic,
musical page compositions, creates a dramatic tension between intimate,
ruminative character studies and the unflinching depiction of the consequences
of war and carnage, lending cohesion and resonance to a generational epic. This
is Kelso’s first new work in four years; the widespread critical reception of
her previous work makes Artichoke Tales one of the most eagerly
anticipated graphic novels of 2010.Format: Buch
