The Arrival is a silent graphic novel about a man who leaves his family behind, to go and find work in a distant city to provide a better life for them. As he tries to adapt to life in this strange new city he meets others people and learns their stories. It's a beautiful book and this is the part which stand out to me the most. Also I should probably mention I previously uploaded these scans to my Tumblr.

A repost from the old Scans_Daily, quite apt for the day.


I am not, by nature, a terribly deep person, this bothers me somewhat, but such is life.

However, there are times when one comes across something so extraordinary, so powerful, and so beautiful that even a shallow person can feel it to their core. Some past examples of this in my case include my first Hayao Miyazaki anime, Pratchett's "Thief of Time" (I've loved his work since before he was famous, but that book spoke to me on a completely new level) or Louis Armstrong singing "What a Wonderful World"

Today I found a new addition to that list in my local library, "The Arrival" written and drawn by Shaun Tan. It's Will Eisner and Art Spiegelman by way of Raymond Briggs, with a touch of Jon J Muth, and something all it's own too.

Click and wonder! )
