Daily Graphic Novel Recommendation 45

Cape Horn

by Christian Perrissin and Enea Riboldi
Genre notes: history, adventure, Tierra Del Fuego, colonial imperialism
228 pages
ISBN: 1770460608 (Amazon)

Cape Horn tells a story of 1890s Tierra Del Fuego, a place steeped in colonial interest. From soldiers to mercenaries to missionaries to vagabonds to the native Yámana people, Cape Horn (the book) is filled with different people with different goals and different identities. Few come to find happiness, but adventure rules the day.

Cape Horn is thrilling and gorgeous and occasionally even thoughtful. This was my #5 Best Graphic Novel of 2014.

And as an added bonus, every time I say the title, my wife hears K-porn (like how Korean pop music is called K-pop). So that's always good for a giggle.
