Longtime friend of Panel to Panel, artist Michael Zulli, has recently released an amazing new graphic novel entitled, The Fracture of the Universal Boy. Written and drawn by Michael Zulli, and published by Eidolon Fine Arts, The Fracture of the Universal Boy has been described by Neil Gaiman as, “…really beautiful, moving, strange and harrowing.” Weighing in at 200 plus, 9″x12″ black and white pages, this gorgeous hardcover was solicited to the comics industry back in July 2011 with this description: “After twenty odd years making art and comics, Zulli believes that there are universal truths to be found amid the struggle and calling to make art, and indeed, to life itself. Often brutal, sometimes a bit funny, and always surreal as it examines life from a different perspective, The Fracture of the Universal Boy is Zulli’s personal reflection on love, life and art; and both the damage done and the possibility of transcending even the most dire and difficult of times. Part one of a three graphic novel set called The Dream Suite, Zulli’s The Fracture of the Universal Boy is the beginning of a journey we all take in one way or another. “
