The Thud – There’s a real village in Germany called Neuerkerode that is operated by people with mental disabilities, the local restaurant, the local bar, the local supermarket. The author spent two years living 3 or 4 days a week there, researching and getting to know its townsfolk and the result is an empathetic depiction. This graphic novel is told entirely from a developmentally impaired boy’s perspective. Noel had always lived with his mother in Berlin, until one day tragedy strikes and he finds himself alone for the first time. A man with a beard tells him he can’t stay in the apartment anymore and takes him to a place with so many strangers. Who can he trust? Who does he like? Who loves him?
