This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
Edmond Baudoin has long been one of the most revered and influential figures in European comics, renowned for his slashing, expressive brushwork and narrative experimentation. But almost none of his many and varied works have ever appeared in English. New York Review Comics is proud to present the first English translation of his most intimate and accessible book, his graphic memoir of growing up with his beloved brother, Piero.
Whether stuck in bed with whooping cough or out exploring in the woods, the two brothers draw together endlessly: they confront Martians, battle octopuses, stage epic battles between medieval castles, and fly together over the Earth. Inevitably, they begin to grow apart, and their shared artistic life is replaced by schoolwork, romance, dances, motorcycles, and the struggle to decide what sort of people they want to be. Piero is a delicate, exuberant testament to the joys of childhood, and a bittersweet account of what it means to become an adult -- and an artist.
