Barnes & Noble Calls The Strange A Best Comic of June

“The Best Comics & Graphic Novels of June 2018” / Barnes & Noble / Ross Johnson / May 31, 2018

An unnamed, undocumented immigrant searches for a new life in a Western country in which he struggles to communicate. Ruillier tells the story from the points of view of those who come into contact with the immigrant, handing-off narrators throughout. It’s an effort to portray the complexities of life as an immigrant, told in a deceptively simple artistic style that conveys promise and a sometimes-naive hope.
