Indie Cover Spotlight: The Book of Grickle

After another long hiatus, ICS is back, baby!

Today’s cover feature is the wonderful and charming collection of Grickle comics from Graham Annable.

Grickle-book

This collection was published by Dark Horse Comics in 2010, and collect several of the earlier Grickle books from Alternative Comics.

I love Annable’s dark sense of humor and extremely expressive stick figure characters. He’s an amazing cartoonist, and if you’ve never checked out Grickle, you owe yourself a look.

Minoo Shirazi’s mysterious double-life continues to unfold across 2000 years of history. In the fantastical world of ancient Persia, the shock of discovering her royal heritage is overshadowed by the imminent invasion of Ahriman’s armies. Only by finding the empire’s champion, Rostam, can she hope to turn back the tide of evil. While in the modern world, Minoo’s life in Iran and America – where she has recently begun her graduate studies – is examined through interactions with her stern father, dying mother, lost brother, and new American boyfriend. Across myths and modern realities, we delve deeper into the truth of Minoo’s life.

I’ll be updating the official Persia Blues website with more info and preview pages soon, so keep an eye out.

PS. Remind your store that volume 1 is still available for ordering:
