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 lifeindeed, one century in a human lifethrough a series of carefully crafted, consistently surprising and enthralling vignettes.

About the Author
What People are Saying About This
"A haunting performance and about as perfect a literary work as I’ve read in years. Hernandez accomplishes in 100 pages what most novelists only dream of—rendering the closeted phlegmatic Julio in all his confounding complexity and in the process creating an unflinching biography of a community, a country and a century. A masterpiece."
