Description - Kingdom by Jon McNaught
Kingdom forges a story in the parts of a vacation we like to forget--the arguments, the poor weather, the moments of quiet solitude. This detailed graphic novel follows a family on their vacation to a small campground, where teenager Andrew explores the dunes in relative solitude, and Suzie navigates childhood in the wake of her older brother.
Fond memories and old habits compete with modern distractions in this contemplative and atmospheric new work from Jon McNaught, with a meditative art style that makes the ordinary, extraordinary. A family sets off for a long weekend at a campground next to the ocean. We follow them through the familiar landscapes of a summer break: gas stations, windswept cliffs, dilapidated museums, and tourist giftshops. Richly illustrated and sparsely worded, Kingdom explores the rhythms of nature, the passing of time, and the beauty and boredom of a summer holiday. A great new story for fans of Richard McGuire.
