Stuff of Interest - May 2006 - Vampire Loves
by Joann Sfar
Meet Ferdinand. He's a vampire who bites his victims with only one tooth in order to pass as a mosquito. He loves the music of dead singers, and has no end of trouble trying to make sense of his relationships - some with the living, some with the undead. Vampire Loves follows the strange and comically romantic adventures of Ferdinand and his friends as they flirt with, seduce, cheat on, break up and make up with all manner of strange creatures.
Softcover, 6x9, 192pgs, Full Colour $16.95

I recently read another of Sfar's books, THE RABBI'S CAT (I think his other stuff translated to English has been some children's books), which I'll write a bit about in a few days. It was pretty interesting, especially the artwork.
The publisher has about a dozen preview pages on their website, and it looks pretty funny. I'm glad my library system has been doing a good job of getting stuff like this.
