This exquisite, mostly-silent graphic novel takes place in a fantasy cityscape loosely inspired by German Expressionist film. Cult of the Ibis tells the story of an occultist getaway driver who, after escaping with the loot from a bank robbery gone wrong, orders a build-your-own homunculus kit and goes on the lam. Steeped in architecture and atmosphere, Tessler’s vividly intricate cartooning fuels this strange and gripping yarn, which is packaged in a gorgeous hardcover design.
