28 Down, 24 To Go - "Lucille" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Ludovic Debeurme's Lucille is an epic, compelling story of young love. Two troubled teenagers, one with anorexia and the other with OCD, fight through their dysfunctional family pasts to work toward building a future together.

Debeurme's simple line drawings are elegant and emotive, adding complexity to both the characters and their relationship.

At over 500 pages, this seems a daunting graphic novel, but the book flies by, and is one of the most thought provoking and unforgettable graphic novels I have read since Dash Shaw's Bottomless Belly Button.

My next book is Chester Brown's graphic novel Paying for It.
