Copper

By: Kazu Kibuishi

Copper and his dog, Fred, go mountain climbing, surfing, and walking through landscapes fantastic and familiar-all while keeping up a wry, humorous banter. When at one point an odd creature Fred tried to befriend runs away, Fred laments, "I guess I'll just have to deal with the fact that I have no friends." "You and me both," says Copper. Introduction. Step-by-step guide to how the comic is created. Full-color illustrations.
