Barnes & Noble names Von Spatz as a graphic novel of the month

“The Best Comics & Graphic Novels of March 2018” / Barnes & Noble Blog / Ross Johnson / February 28, 2018

Von Spatz, by Anna Haifisch

The Von Spatz Rehabilitation Center for Artists caters to some of the 20th century’s finest: names like Tomi Ungerer, Saul Steinberg, and even Walt Disney himself. An exploration of drive and insecurity among artists, Haifisch imagines the trio as animal-headed patients at an art therapy retreat where the they develop a slow-earned friendship. It’s absurdist and experimental book, but also funny and heartwarming.
