Recently Read: Chimichanga, by Eric Powell

Short, odd and entertaining all-ages graphic novel by the creator of The Goon. Chimichanga is the name of the pet monster of Lula, a bearded girl in an on-its-last-legs circus.

Eric Powell created the series based on prodding from his son; the concept was originally pitched to a cable animation channel, but rejected. Powell has put a lot of work into the project, using a mixture of inked drawings and painterly colors. The art often looks like spot-on Jack Davis, which can be jarring when surrounded by non-Davis-influenced art.

Chimichanga is a light, cute diversion that kids and adults both can enjoy.
