{     Never Ending Summer     } Sun bleached pavements, overly quiet hot nights... nobody seems to be around...

Well, in those moments of summer lonliness, I suggest you make new paper friends with this comic book, the title of which fits so perfectly the mood of those long, sweaty, bright, empty afternoons... Never Ending Summer, first published in 2004 (but the feeling you get is of total absence of time) and created by super talented Allison Cole, author of no less than 15 other minicomics, whose work has been featured on Art Prostitute and many others, is
..a graphic novel that pays attention to the strange details that make up everyday life, the story is an autobiographical account that follows a group of friends through a summer filled with uncertainty and confusion. Relationships break down between boyfriends, friends, and family, throughout which the author must discover how to maintain a sense of balance. Parties, excessive drinking, and financial instability add to the commotion. Drawn in a beautiful minimal style with delicate 2-color interior, Never Ending Summer reflects upon the immediacy of the present and the potential of events to come.
(from Now, confess it is exactly what you were looking for to fill up your hot, insomniac nights...
