I love First & Fifteenth, a graphic novel by Steve Powers aka ESPO. I am tempted to tear out the pages and put them on my walls. But I love the stories too much. This book is done in an unique style of comic communication sans voice bubbles.

It features urban parables using imagery from: the streets, signs and advertising. The short stories about scams and daily life are all done in Power’s unique style of getting over. The characters are people you see on your block, or overhear in the subway. And the excellent anti-superhero makes appearances throughout. It is really funny, and a perfect holiday present.
