Josephine Graphic Novel by Kevin Sacco

In his first work since The Plane Story, Kevin Sacco brings us a wordless civll-rights era tale of a young boy with a complicated family life who accompanies his family’s domestic—Josephine— from his Upper West Side comforts to her neighborhood haunts in Harlem.

 This journey subtly imbues the boy with a world view as full of blacks, whites and grays as the story’s art. At the heart of this narrative is the bond the boy shares with Josephine—until a sinister plot twist casts a dark shadow on their relationship.
