Summer Reading: Grace Calibo’s Recommended Graphic Novels

What's on your summer reading list? We asked Tri-Cities artist Grace Calibo to tell us about some great graphic novels she's been reading lately. As a creator of abstract nature pieces, detailed acrylic dragon paintings, and neatly carved prints of anything she can dream up, her art isn’t confined to a single medium, genre, or mood—as for her recent work at DrewBoy Creative shows.

Read our interview with her here about her artistic process working in a variety of visual mediums, being self-taught, and the secrets of her quarantine creative process.

Eternity by Matt Kindt, Trevor Hairsine

“The art is so vibrant and impactful I’ve spent ages just staring  at the pages in awe.”

Natsume’s Book of Friends by Midorikawa Yuki

“In Natsume’s Book of Friends, the art seems to float on each page, lending the
reader a taste of the otherworldly.”

Aqua Leung by Mark Smith, Paul Maybury

“Aqua Leung is filled with playful, charming illustration that plays with
color and composition in a way that spurs the story along effortlessly.”

Rumble by John Arcudi, James Harren, Dave Stewart

“There’s just something about the contrast in Rumble’s colorful yet eerie
illustration that speaks to me.”

Krishna (A Journey Within) by Abhishek Singh

“I’ve not yet finished reading Krishna but that’s because I’m continually
distracted by its absolutely, mind bogglingly, stunning art.”
