Ever since he first joined Top Shelf with the 2006 autobiographical collection Please Release, Nate Powell has been one of the most fascinating cartoonists we’ve had the pleasure to publish. Longtime fans have joined us in watching his career unfold: winning the Eisner Award for Best Graphic Novel, speaking at the United Nations and on The Rachel Maddow Show, bringing the award-winning March saga to life, and much more.
Now, following the release of the New York Times bestseller March: Book Two, Powell looks back on the past decade and has assembled a stunning collection of seventeen short works. Shipping in May 2015 and open for pre-orders now at your local retailer, you mustn’t miss You Don’t Say.
“You Don’t Say is more than just a collection of immaculate stories; it’s also a glimpse at the evolution of one of today’s most gifted storytellers.” – Scott Snyder
“Haunting, poetic, and visually lyrical, You Don’t Say will get stuck in your head – you’ll be humming its tunes long after you’ve closed the book.” – Becky Cloonan
A celebrity glares. A community burns. A child’s heart breaks. A recipe summons a ghost. A dying woman makes her peace. An art form sustains the spirit.
In You Don’t Say, award-winning graphic novelist Nate Powell (Swallow Me Whole, March) collects a decade of powerful short works. Autobiography, fiction, essay comics, collaborations, and more fill these thoughtful, pitch-black pages, comprising rare and previously unreleased material from 2004-2013.
