The Lifelike graphic novel is a diverse collection of slice-of-life stories...and beyond.
Each vignette, illustrated by a different artist, presents a glimpse into distinct corners of the world outside our window. Not limited to the cliched autobiographical tales so often associated with the genre, the tales in this collection range from noir crime and love stories to war memoirs and humorous conversation pieces. A multicultural, multiethnic cast of characters infuses the book with a realism often missing from today's comics.
Lifelike features the work of 11 talented artists from 3 different countries, and an introduction by award-winning cartoonist Derf. 112 pages, full color.
Testimonials and Reviews
"Really inventive stuff." -- Sam Kieth (The Maxx, Batman, Four Women)
"...a book that is visually diverse but beautiful to look at, and held together by the strength of Naraghi's writing." -- Alan David Doane, Comic Book Galaxy)
"There are so many different visual styles here, and Naraghi is such a versatile storyteller, that they barely seem to be part of the same series, but there's something that links them together, a great storyteller's sensibility." -- Cory Doctorow, Nebula & Locus award-winning novelist
"Grade A storytelling." -- Jack's Webcomic Reviews
