|About the Book|
Featuring some of the most original creators making comics today, the tales found in Snow Stories: A Comics Anthology break through the barriers of genre to offer unique, personal visions from a wide range of both established and up-and-coming artists. In Wolf Mask, chilling family secrets are passed on to a young Native American, Patrick Dean survives a freak Georgia snowfall in The Blizzard of 1993, and a lonely explorer searches for an alluring Yeti in Roger Langridges Venus in Fur. The powerful symbolism of snow and the emotional resonance of snowfall strike notes of isolation, nostalgia, and irony in stories like My Grandmothers Funeral, The Ghost of Barracks Road, and It Never Snows in Long Beach. From real world vignettes to clever explorations in color and style, from introspective moments to hilarious encounters, from veteran storytellers to the best new cartoonists on the scene, Snow Stories will transport you to lush locales, battlefields, and blizzards, illuminating both the humorous and horrifying extremes of the human experience.
