Jinchalo Graphic Novel
(W/A/CA) Matthew Forsythe
Jinchalo is Korean for "Really?" and that question is at the heart of this book. When the mischevious shapeshifter Jinchalo hatches from a mysterious egg, he starts our heroine adventuring anew. Magical troubles drag the pair out of the safety of her home. These comics are firmly rooted in Korean folktakes and stylistic conventions, with a playful, joyous line to create a Miyazaki-tinged dreamscape where spotted octopi fly and bears give piggyback rides. .
