Snow Day

Written by Pierre Wazem | Illustrated by Aubin | Translated by Mark Bence
Humanoids | February 14, 2017

An icy poetic crime tale set in America’s heartland.

An outsider sheriff struggles to find his place in an isolated, snow-covered town populated by a hard people who are set in their ways and don’t take too kindly to strangers. It's a place where folks mind their own business — however odd it may be — and do as they please. That is, until the calm, quiet sheriff decides to do his job…

Pierre Wazem entered the School of Decorative Arts of Geneva in 1988, following traditional schooling into college. In 1992 he began working with other Swiss creators on a magazine. This eventually led him to writing graphic novels. He has written numerous graphic novels for Humanoids including: "Bretagne," "Comme Une Riviere," and "Sur La Neige."

Antoine Aubin began his work in comics with Disney including "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" and "Chip and Dale". He is most well-known for his work on the popular "Blake & Mortimer" series.

REVIEWS

"A thoughtful, largely wordless work in which not much happens, the strength of this piece lies in the stark, realistic depictions artist Aubin (Blake & Mortimer) gives of the narrative’s utter mundanity."Publisher Weekly

This visually dazzling exploration of numbers is equal parts playful pop-up book and work of art. Its creative twist on the classic counting book reveals how the most basic shapes become the building blocks for every number.
