Ojingogo returns!



If you've missed it the first time around, Matthew Forsythe's great graphic novel debut, Ojingogo, is now back in print, complete with a new design. After being originally serialized on Matthew's blog, it was published in book form about a year ago and was met with widespread acclaim, winning a Doug Wright Award and being selected as a Book of the Year by Quill & Quire magazine. If there was such an award, I'd also nominate Ojingogo for all-time best wordless graphic novel (it would be a tough category because it would be up against other gems like Brian Ralph's Cave In and Sara Varon's Robot Dreams).

Matthew's day job is working at the National Film Board of Canada, where he's been in charge of uploading hundreds of films from the past half century or so onto their website for free viewing. If you're unfamiliar with the NFB, start here or here and make sure you set aside plenty of time each week after that. Matthew says that they're uploading new films every week and it may take a few more years to get it all up there.
