I haven't read very many graphic novels. This is my third (after Persepolis and Fun Home, both of which I adored). Blankets details Craig Thompson's childhood, up through his high school graduation: I was brought into a world filled with teen-angst, profound faith, first loves and challenges families face everyday. This was a comforting read, laying in bed on a cold Sunday afternoon with blanket of my own. Thompson does an excellent job conveying heavy, complicated emotions with his art. I don't have anything profound to say about this book, except that it kept me warm and I'll bet it would do the same for you.
