A Contract With God

My love affair with Graphic Novels continues with the arrival of my newest purchase, A Contract With God.

"Eisner was not only ahead of his times; the present times are still catching up to him." - John Updike
A revolutionary novel, A Contract With God re-creates the neighborhood of Will Eisner's youth through a quartet of four interwoven stories. Expressing the joy, exuberance, tragedy, and drama of life on the mythical Dropsie Avenue of the Bronx, A Contract With God is a monumental achievement, a must in the library of any graphic novel fan.

Hhhmmm, the online blurb doesn't sound like much, but to be honest it was the cover concept that got me interested, a guy crying out to God, who apparently has broken a contract.

Oh, and I also got a Zombie Love Story called The Living and the Dead.
