Happy Wednesday (despite it almost being over here), and welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday~ This week I got a graphic novel for you all about nuclear winters! Yep, imagine if winters never ended. Sounds fun at first, but then it gets pretty cold and chilly and you just want some warmth. I bumped against this book on Twitter and fell in love with it. The cover looks so much fun, and I also loved the preview pages I saw. The art looks really good. I can’t wait to get it, hopefully soon.
Nothing’s rougher than a Canadian winter . . . except maybe one that never ends!
It’s been nine years since an accident at a nuclear power plant plunged Montreal into an eternal winter; the city is now blanketed 365 days a year in radioactive snow. But life goes on for folks like Flavie Beaumont, a mail courier on snowmobile who’s carved out a pretty normal life for herself, despite mutant crushes, eclectic urban fauna, and unrelenting meteorological events of unprecedented force. It turns out surviving nuclear winter is hard . . . but it’s possible surviving your twenties is even harder!
