An absolutely remarkable graphic novel, and one you’re likely to see on many end of year lists. Masquerading as the journal of a young girl in late 60’s Chicago (complete with ruled lines on every page), MFTIM is part murder-mystery, part outsider-memoir, part love letter to pulp horror magazines, and part holocaust remembrance. 10 year old Karen Reyes – depicting herself as a monster – investigates the murder of her upstairs neighbour, holocaust survivor Anka Silverberg. What unfolds is a moving, unexpectedly gripping tale that utlilises the medium in unique, exciting ways, and which concludes with a second volume in early 2018.
