The Marchenoir Library by Alex Degen. $21.95. Softcover, 104 pages, full color.

No one makes comics like Alex Degen. While most readers instantly connect to the thrill of the elegant visual world Degen works in, these comics need to be READ. There are layers and layers of thought and feeling woven into his unique visual world. His work deserves to be reckoned with as closely as it is meant to be enjoyed. One of the most original artists working in comics today.
