Book Review: Empire State by Jason Shiga

Summary/Review: This sweet but sad graphic novel tells the story of two friends separated by a continent and their bittersweet reunion.  I can relate to the antagonist’s shyness and hopefulness as the world opens before him while his heart is broken.

    So beautiful. Never read Bookhunter though, how do they compare?

      Bookhunter is an entirely different work written as a crime procedural, although the artwork is very similar.
