Cult of the Ibis
Intended for mature audiences
This exquisite and mostly-silent graphic novel takes place in a fantasy cityscape loosely inspired by German expressionist films. Cult of the Ibis tells the story of an occultist getaway-driver who, after escaping with the loot from a bank robbery gone wrong, orders a build-you-own-homunculus kit and goes on the lam. Steeped in architecture and atmosphere, Tessler's gorgeous cartooning fuels this strangely gripping yarn, which is packaged in a gorgeous hardcover design.
