School Library Journal on FCBD feat. If Found

“Free Comic Book Day is This Saturday!” / School Library Journal / J. Caleb Mozzocco / May 4, 2017

Colorful Monsters is publisher Drawn and Quarterly’s welcome contribution, a 64-page all-ages compilation featuring work from late, great cartoonists like Tove Jansson (Moomin) and Shigeru Mizuki (Kitaro), the still-living and also great Anouk Ricard (Anna & Froga), and Elise Gravel (the writer/artist responsible for the Disgusting Critters series of picture books, and the upcoming If Found…Please Return to Elise Gravel). More than any other of this year’s kid-friendly offerings, this one offers the best gateway into comics from around the world and from several generations, although all the stories are vital and relevant enough that they will speak directly to the youngest American readers.
