(W) Larry Marder (A/CA) Larry Marder
Music, art, and technology are forever intertwined in Larry Marder's Beanworld. In this omnibus collection that features three standalone graphic novels, the Boom'r Band teaches Beanish their musical secrets, and the Pod'l'pool Cuties discover the power of flight! Marder's deceptively simple art style works in tandem with multi-layered narratives that run by Beanworld's own rules, truths, and lingo. All characters-whether friends or adversaries-depend on interactions with each other for the ultimate survival of their environment. Beanworld has delighted readers from grade school to grad school for more than a generation, earning a spot on the New York Times Graphic Books Best Sellers List. Collects Beanworld HC volumes 3, 3.5 (Tales of the Beanworld in b&w), and 4, with a bonus sketchbook section.
