First UK publication for this modern classic

‘It’s beautifully written and drawn, it’s very poetic and very romantic. I highly recommend it.’ ELENA FAVILLI

‘Moving, tender, beautifully drawn, painfully honest and probably the most important graphic novel since Jimmy Corrigan.’ NEIL GAIMAN

‘Blankets is a classic in every genre it touches.’ STEPHEN CHBOSKY, author of The Perks of Being a Wallflower

‘One of the greatest love stories ever written and surely the best ever drawn.’ JOSS WHEDON

Wrapped in the snowfall of a blustery Midwestern winter, Blankets is the tale of two brothers growing up in rural isolation, and of the budding romance between two young lovers. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith, Blankets is a profound and utterly beautiful work.

Critic Reviews

'It's beautifully written and drawn, it's very poetic and it's very romantic. I highly recommend it'

Elena Favilli
Critic Reviews

‘The art's melodramatic backgrounds perfectly evokes the obsessive intensity of feeling those things for the first time, where the excitement of fitting together with someone obscures the imperfection of the fit, for a while, at least.’


Craig Thompson’s previous graphic novels include Goodbye, Chunky Rice, Blankets, Carnet de Voyage and, most recently, Habibi, an Observer Graphic Novel of the Month and a New York Times bestseller, which was described by Neel Mukherjee as ‘a landmark publication’. His work has received four Harvey Awards, three Eisner Awards and two Ignatz Awards.
