Description
It begins in the year 1900, with the scream of a newborn. It ends, 100 pages later, in the year 2000, with the death rattle of a 100-year-old man. The infant and the old man are both Julio, and Gilbert Hernandez's Julio's Day is his latest graphic novel, a masterpiece of elliptical, emotional storytelling that traces one life indeed, one century in a human life through a series of carefully crafted, consistently surprising and enthralling vignettes.
