Orangutan

To All and Sundry, Near and Far, My F-List in Particular

I'd like to recommend a graphic novel that's being serialized online at http://www.jmarshallfreeman.com. It's called "The Release Party" and a new installment is posted each Wednesday.

I'm looking forward to Wednesdays like never before. "The Release Party" is intriguing, sometimes funny, with characters and relationships that feel very real and a genuine plot, as well. I'm amazed with what he's able to do with line drawings and very few words. There's a sense of more happening than you can see. There are flashes of humor along the way. Freeman reminds me of Spiegelman in his ability to give novelistic depth in the comic book form. Bravo! Check it out, folks, if you get a chance.
