28 Down, 24 To Go "George Sprott " (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

I first read Seth's graphic novel George Sprott when it was serialized in the New York Times Magazine and to say I was impressed was an understatement. Collected, expanded and remastered in a gloriously oversized (12 1/4" x 14 1/4") volume, this book examines the life of a fictional Canadian television personality. George Sprott's often sad and lonely life is unfolded in a series of powerful vignettes, and Seth's meticulous backdrops of small Canadian towns enhance the carefully paced storytelling.

Once again Drawn & Quarterly has produced an exceptional graphic novel from an immensely talented cartoonist.
