The Property - Rutu Modan, Jessica Cohen

In The Property (Drawn & Quarterly, 24.95), Regina Segal and her granddaughter Mica travel to Warsaw to reclaim the family property lost during World War II. Or at least, that’s what her grandmother tells Regina. In fact, the two go to Warsaw to uncover a lost history, one that is as complex as it is beautiful, as full of love and as it is of loss. Rutu Modan’s wit, realism, and elegant clear-line style make this a vivid and immediate tale with complex and rounded characters and place. This is a subtly rich and satisfying graphic novel.

Rasl - Jeff Smith

From Jeff Smith, the creator of Bone, comes the fast-paced, noir crime-thriller, RASL (Cartoon, 39.99). Robert, otherwise known as Rasl, is an art thief on the run from his former employer, a tech company experimenting with the St. George Array, an invention that Nicola Tesla hypothesized would provide unlimited energy for the world. In uncovering Tesla’s secrets, Robert has discovered how to travel through other dimensions, and his demons follow close behind. This is Smith’s dark side, and he makes a suspenseful tale of it, one rich with the brilliant Tesla’s science and ideas. RASL is the work of a master colorist and deft cartoonist.
