“TIME lists BLANKETS by Craig Thompson as Top Graphic Novel 2003” / TIME / Andrew Arnold / December 18, 2003

This semi-autobiographical novel set in the snowy hinterlands of Wisconsin tells the story of a lonely, artistic young man who struggles with his fundamentalist Christian upbringing when he falls in love. Fluidly told over 582 pages, "Blankets" magically recreates the high emotional stakes of adolescence. Thompson has set new bars for the medium not just in length, but breadth.
