An atmospheric bank robbing fantasy.
This exquisite and mostly-silent graphic novel takes place in a fantasy cityscape loosely inspired by German expressionist film. 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-your-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.
“A tour de force in black and white. Nearly every picture balances a sense of wonder and menace — stopping you in your tracks even as the plot races ahead.” — The New York Times
