Burma Chronicles SC
(Drawn & Quarterly)

(W/A) Guy Delisle Burma is notorious for its use of concealment and isolation as social control, where censors monitor the papers, the de facto leader of the opposition has been under decade-long house arrest, insurgent-controlled regions are effectively cut off from the world, and rumor is the most reliable source of current information. Delisle's The Burma Chronicles incisive portrait of the country is drawn with a minimal line and with wordless vignettes. [Guy Delisle]

Image: Even More Bad Parenting Advice GN  - Drawn & Quarterly

Even More Bad Parenting Advice marks Guy Delisle's second foray into the world of offering bad advice to parents, and a second opportunity to express the minor frustrations and many joys of parenting. Delisle's skillful hand at illustration and ironic way with words, which helped to popularize his travelogues about daily life in faraway places, are just as much the stars here as he or his children are. Delisle celebrates the reality that parenting isn't all first steps and gold-starred report cards; it's stinky diapers and never-ending drives to the grocery store, too. [(W/A/CA) Guy Delisle]

(Drawn & Quarterly)

The Handbook to Lazy Parenting is bestselling cartoonist Guy Delisle's final tribute to the frequently hilarious and absurd situations that any parent will find themselves in when raising young children-all told with Delisle's trademark sarcastic wit. But even as Delisle's children grow older, wiser, and less interested in their father's antics, Delisle has no shortage of bad parenting stories, only now, sometimes, the joke is on him! Delisle tells relatable stories of parenthood, the mistakes we have trouble admitting to, and the impulse that we all sometimes have to give a comically serious answer to a child's comically serious question.

Hostage HC
(Drawn & Quarterly)

In the middle of the night in 1997, Doctors Without Borders administrator Christophe André was kidnapped by armed men and taken away to an unknown destination in the Caucasus region. For three months, André was kept handcuffed in solitary confinement, with little to survive on and almost no contact with the outside world. Award-winning cartoonist Guy Delisle recounts André's harrowing experience in Hostage, a book that attests to the power of one man's determination in the face of a hopeless situation. Delisle tells the story through the perspective of the titular captive, who strives to keep his mind alert as desperation starts to set in. Delisle conveys the psychological effects of solitary confinement, compelling us to ask ourselves some difficult questions regarding the repercussions of negotiating with kidnappers and what it really means to be free.

Image: Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City HC  - Drawn & Quarterly

He examines the impact of the conflict on the lives of people on both sides of the wall while drolly recounting the quotidian: checkpoints, traffic jams, and holidays. When observing the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim populations that call Jerusalem home, Delisle's drawn line is both sensitive and fair, assuming nothing and drawing everything.
