Sara Ryan and Carla Speed McNeil's Bad Houses

Sara Ryan and Carla Speed McNeil have created one of the best graphic novels of the year in Bad Houses.

It's the story of two teenagers in the small town of Failin, Oregon. It's about how we understand the past and how we chose to not let it define us. It is the story of a community, but more than that, it is the story of things: a city, a building, a storage unit, a photograph, a relationship -- the meanings we assign to them and how we live with that knowledge. Like its characters, it is a book that understands failure and loss, but it is also a romantic, triumphant and hopeful story.

It's out now form Dark Horse Comics and you won't be disappointed by it.
