The Mail Order Bride by Mark Kalesniko

Of all things, here's a graphic novel about mail order brides. It's written by Mark Kalesniko, a Disney animator who worked on Mulan and The Lion King, among other projects. Here's more about the book from the publisher's website, and one two make it three reviews. To go international on you, I'll drop this in French and this in German then end with this review that says the book is "one of the most sophisticated, understated and effortless pieces of comics-lit that you are likely to find." To see a few panels from the graphic novel, and perhaps learn what Disney animators would be drawing if they weren't being held down by The Man (or The Mouse), visit this page.
