shaun tan's the arrival


I've been meaning to write about Shaun Tan's amazing, award-winning graphic novel The Arrival for quite a while now. The book is a wordless, gorgeous compelling piece depicting the journey of one man to a new country. Tan mixes his sepia-tone, realistic style with a sense of the mysterious and fantastic. Check out this excerpt in New York magazine's comics page from a few months back: Exclusive Comics Excerpt: 'The Arrival'. It's pretty amazing stuff. Learn more about Shaun Tan and his work here.
