Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"The latest offering from acclaimed graphic artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, War of the Blink is a stunning full-colour graphic novel about war and peace, and a brilliant follow-up to Red: A Haida Manga. It is the story of a fisherman who suspects a party of raiders is descending upon his island home. When his warnings are not heeded, the man sets out to guard the village on his own, only to find himself caught up in a high-stakes game of kidnap and bluff. In the final showdown, one of the sides must blink first, and the villagers find a surprising way to save face and avoid bloodshed. Combining traditional Northwest coast and Japanese comic art in Yahgulanaas’ own, dizzyingly original mish-mash, War of the Blink is a timeless fable about the bravery it takes to choose peace over war." -- Provided by publisher.
