I ran across Isabel Greenberg’s short story this week Love in a Very Cold Climate thanks to the Graphic Ladies?! Tumblr, and I was enchanted by it. It’s a lovely, folkloric story about a couple united by love but repelled by physical forces, and it appears to be part of a larger story world that Greenberg has just begun to create.
As it happens, Greenberg’s story won the 2011 Graphic Short Story Prize sponsored by The Observer, Comica, and Vintage Books. The runner-up and previous winners are also posted at the award website, and all are well worth a look.
