    MarcusH: While The Underdogs is not a graphic novel, Markus Zusak does create a series of somewhat autobiographical coming of age tales similar to the story told in Blankets. Zusak's prose is poetic and creates images through words as Thompson creates actual images.

This is the first graphic novel I've ever read all the way through. It tells the story of Craig, his childhood in a fundamentalist Christian family, his first love, and his subsequent questioning of everything he has known.

At first I found the story rather depressing, but came to appreciate it as the sometimes good, sometimes sad story of growing up. I think we all have memories if childhood and our teen years that make us cringe, that make us wish we'd done things differently. This book is a great illustration of just that. ( )

B&W throughout. A quick read about growing up in America in the 1980s. ( )

While I could not resonate with the religious intensity presented in 'Blankets', it was a powerful book nonetheless. Craig Thompson's style is very much in line with 'Fun Home' by Alison Bechdel (comparison made due to my reading Fun Home first).
The pacing of the characters and story is done in a very metered way where nothing feels rushed or overstayed. There are gaps in the years throughout the book, but I never felt like the missing ones left holes. There is a sense of closure to everything introduced that I didn't expect could be resolved by the time it ended.
The art style lent itself quite well to the theme. Thompson's sketching put a surprising amount of care in the drawing that was commanding attention, while leaving sparse details on the less important areas of a given panel.
It's not a light, whimsical read by any measure, but it's still a strong contender for my top graphic novels list. ( )

Do you ever have those moments where you read a book, hear a song, watch a scene, or see a picture that draws you in, washes over you, and leaves you wondering what just happened? Something that pulls at you, makes it difficult to swallow, brings tears to your eyes, sends a little shiver down your spine, and you don’t even really know why? It doesn’t even have to be “good” art per se, but for some reason it resonates just right with your own frequency. It’s like a bit like falling in love — that dizzy, giddy feeling of realizing that someone, maybe just a little, understands you, the real you.

Most often I find this in books: Elizabeth Wein’s “The Winter Prince,” Robin McKinley’s “Deerskin,” Madeleine L’Engle’s “Ring of Endless Light,” Juliet Marillier’s “Wolfskin;” sometimes with songs: Eric Whitacre’s “Sleep,” Howard Shore’s “Breaking of the Fellowship,” the Fray’s “Happiness,” among others. When I find them, I want to read or listen to them over and over; it’s so good that I can’t help wanting to repeat that first “oomph” where it reaches in and grabs my heartstrings. It’s part of the reason why I am constantly reading Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings.” At the same time there is a little trepidation at leaving them — perhaps the magic of them will disappear after having marred their memory with some other novel or song. And it’s true — you come back to them a different person each time. And sometimes it does fade after time — the words or melodies are no longer exactly what you need now, because they were what you needed then.

Blankets, by Craig Thompson, is one of those books. It’s a surreal feeling to read a book and to realize as you are reading it that it is going to be something that will sink into your skin and dwell with you and quite possibly have a significant impact on who you are, how you think about things, why you think about things. “Blankets” is a five hundred eighty-two graphic novel, semi-autobiographical, written by a young man raised in a small mid-western town by a strict Christian family. It chronicles episodes from his childhood — he is a scrawny, sensitive, artistic child with a younger brother and a penchant for drawing which his parents are highly critical of — and his adolescence: dawning awareness of the hypocrisy amongst his faith-professing peers, scattered ideas of how to reconcile his love for art and the pressure to enter the ministry, an unprecedented long-distance friendship with a girl he meets at church camp. All of it is lushly, starkly, horribly, beautifully, stunningly illustrated in black and white drawings.

Many in the demographic to which it is pushed now — the young adult/senior high school student — are not ready for this book. It is painfully honest, exposing the falseness and crudeness that Craig sees and hears, the horrors of childhood punishment and abuse, the ecstasy and thrills of his relationship with Raina, the preconceived ideas and ugly assumptions expressed by the supposedly pious, the doubts and fears and questions of faith.

Blankets is an attempt to rejuvenate such well-trod themes as social isolation, religious guilt, and first love; the vitality of which has become too frequently obscured by countless hackneyed dramas and endless clichés. Toward the very end of this “illustrated novel,” Craig notes, while walking in snow, how “satisfying it is to leave a mark on a blank surface.” In Blankets, Thompson does just this: through daring leaps of visual storytelling, he makes wonderfully fresh marks upon a surface long worn blank.

In telling his story, which includes beautifully rendered memories of the small brutalities that parents inflict upon their children and siblings upon each other, Thompson describes the ecstasy and ache of obsession (with a lover, with God) and is unafraid to suggest the ways that obsession can consume itself and evaporate.

...credit writer-artist Craig Thompson, 27, for infusing his bittersweet tale of childhood psyche bruising, junior Christian angst, and adolescent first love with a lyricism so engaging, the pages fly right by.

I would be unlikely to share Blankets with someone who told me they wanted to understand comix. Instead, I would give it to anyone who told me they wanted to read a book that made them feel transcendent, sad, generous, hopeful — but above all, to truly feel something.

Part teen romance novel, part coming-of-age novel, part faith-in-crisis novel and all comix, "Blankets" is a great American novel.
