Sloth by Gilbert Hernandez ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Graphic Novel. From the award-winning co-creator of legendary underground comic "Love & Rockets" comes "Sloth", a surrealistic romantic drama set against a background of haunted lemon orchards, teenage love affairs, and darkness on the edge of town. When troubled teenager Miguel Serra decides to induce himself into a coma, he awakens one year later a shadow of his former self. Revered as an urban legend, and slothful in appearance and movement, he embarks on a journey across a desolate suburban wasteland where the answers to his problems are rarely forthcoming. With a host of off-beat characters and unusual situations, this beautifully illustrated voyage into a Lynchean world guarantees to knock you out!

Marble season by Gilbert Hernandez ( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Middle child Huey stages Captain America plays and treasures his older brother's comic book collection almost as much as his approval. "Marble Season" subtly and deftly details how the innocent, joyfully creative play that children engage in (shooting marbles, backyard performances, and organizing treasure hunts) changes as they grow older and encounter name-calling naysayers, abusive bullies, and the value judgments of other kids. An all-ages story, "Marble Season" masterfully explores the redemptive and timeless power of storytelling and role play in childhood, making it a coming-of-age story that is as resonant with the children of today as with the children of the sixties
