Good-bye, Chunky Rice

Best known for his enormous graphic novel Blankets, Craig Thompson’s first graphic novel, Good-bye, Chunky Rice, is still a personal favorite of mine. Using a cast of animal and human characters, Thompson’s story chronicles the emotions that come with changes in one’s life, especially when this means leaving behind the comforts of home and friends. Thompson’s excellent cartooning and design sensibilities may appear light-hearted, but they help to achieve a balance between the melancholic and whimsical tones that run through the course of the story.
