As this has only just arrived, but as this double-dose of comics new-to-US-readers by Joff Winterhart has been previously published in the UK, where it garnered some impressive praise by some people whose opinions we pay attention to (see below), we dove right in. So far we can report that Days of Bagnold Summer consists of a narratively linkedseries of one-page comics, each of which stands on their own yet each one building on the previous to tell the story advertised by the title. Days of Bagnold Summer doesn't blink in presenting the uncomfortable aspects of adolescence and adolescent parenting (Our blurb might read, "There's a cringe on every page!").
"Beautifully drawn and exquisitely written... confirms Winterhart as one of the most talented graphic novelists in the UK." – Zadie Smith on Driving Short Distances
"There is probably no truer portrait of teenage and parental angst." – Posy Simmonds on Days of Bagnold Summer
