On the road: The Washington Post's travel section spotlights Craig Thompson's Carnet de Voyage as a "Road Read":

"Thompson's record of his trip this year through Europe and Morocco is illustrated not with photos ('they steal an image') but with his own drawings. They can be rich in detail, as when he sketches Parisian cityscapes or Moroccan souks, or penetrating and revealing, as in his character studies. There's also a good bit of fun in his mix, particularly when his little bloblike alter ego teases him out of his nearly perpetual self-pity."
