Sailor Twain by Mark Siegel is a graphic novel that goes beyond what you would expect from one. The story is a thrilling adventure, sprinkled with romance & a love story, draped in folklore and beautifully rendered in soft charcoal drawings. Even the text is hand written, which is so refreshing. Truly a work of art.
I do enjoy graphic novels, but I'm not your typical reader. I'm not your Superman kind of girl, but give me a great story with compelling characters and wonderful hand drawn art and I am hooked! That's what you'll find in Sailor Twain. I knew it was special when I saw it's dust jacketed spine and pulled it from the bookstore shelf.
If you enjoy folklore with a bit of romance, you will enjoy this! If you are undecided about graphic novels, give this one a chance! (I shared this with one of the guys at work who never read a graphic novel before and he loved it!)
Sailor Twain: Or: The Mermaid in the Hudson is available in Hardcover (paperback coming in March 2014) AND it's available for your Kindle too! And all are published by 01:First Second
