by Andy Runton

Top Shelf has just signed mini-comics maestro, Andy Runton, and his all-
ages series, Owly. This beautifully rendered and touching story will be the
first actual graphic novel series from Top Shelf. … Owly is a kind, yet
lonely, little owl who's always on the lookout for new friends and
adventure. The first graphic novel in the series contains two enchanting
novellas, "The Way Home" & "The Bittersweet Summer," wherein Owly
discovers the meaning of friendship, and that saying goodbye doesn't
always mean forever. Relying on a mixture of symbols, icons, and
expressions to tell his silent stories, Runton's clean, animated, and
heartwarming style makes it a perfect read for anyone who's a fan of Jeff
Smith's Bone or Mike Kunkel's Herobear and the Kid. Don't miss the next
big thing in comics!

-- $10.00 (US), 160 pages, 5.25" x 7.5", Graphic Novel, ISBN 1-891830-62-7
