Klezmer: Book One: Tales of the Wild East – Joann Sfar

Three outcaste Jews and a Romi get together to form a klezmer band in pre-WWII Eastern Europe. Sfar presents a beautifully painted, somewhat rambling, tale of heartache and humor. While the characters still need developing and Sfar relies too strongly on internal monologue, there is great potential and emotion in this comic of a destroyed culture.
