GINSENG ROOTS COMPLETE BOX SET

A collectible Box Set with ALL 12 issues of Craig Thompson's Eisner Award nominated GINSENG ROOTS series. From ages 10 to 20, Craig Thompson (BLANKETS) and his little brother Phil, toiled in Wisconsin farms. Weeding and harvesting ginseng—a medicinal herb that fetched huge profits in China—funded Craig’s youthful obsession with comic books. Comics in turn, allowed him to escape his rural, working class trappings. Now, for the first time in his career, Thompson is working in serial form, in a bimonthly comic book series. Part memoir, part travelogue, part essay, GINSENG ROOTS explores class divide, agriculture, holistic healing, the 300-year-long trade relationship between China and North America, childhood labor, and the bond between two brothers. The Collectible Box contains issues 1-12 of GINSENG ROOTS + Bonus Mini-Comic and a sticker.
