Then And Now by Datsun Tran HC

In his picture-book debut, contemporary artist Datsun Tran tells his family?s story of making a new home after journeying by boat from Vietnam as refugees. In vivid ink paintings and spare, resonant text, Then and Now explores the powerful associations a sound, smell or sensation can carry. Young readers are warmly welcomed into two immersive, multi-sensory and strikingly different worlds: then and now. Datsun Tran combines traditional and modern materials and processes to make ink paintings inspired by classical Chinese brushwork. He explores themes of conflict and utopia, childhood and the relationship between different cultures. His subject matter is often filtered through the lens of what we have in common, rather than what separates us.

The inmates of an extensive underground prison struggle to build meaningful lives in a broken system, in the most ambitious graphic novel to date from rising indie star Chris Gooch (Bottled and Deep Breaths). Under-Earth takes place in a subterranean landfill, hollowed out to serve as a massive improvised prison. Sunken into the trash and debris of the past - Gameboys, iPhones, coffee cups, old cars - we follow two parallel stories. In the first, a new arrival struggles to adapt to the everyday violence, physical labour, and poverty of the prison city. Overwhelmed and alone, he finds a connection with a fellow inmate through an old, beat-up novel. While these two silent and uncommunicative men grow closer thanks to their book, the stress of their environment will test their new bond.
