Musnet 4: The Tears of the Painter
Nominated for 2017 Prix Angoulême, Youth Category
Silver Medal, Moonbeam Awards
It's dark season in Musnet's world. His adoptive family faces eviction, his Master Remi is deathly ill, he's chased by snakes, cats, and vampire bats, and—on top of all that—Musnet faces the most challenging painting commission of his life! Can he rise to challenges and brush them all away?
Set in the midst of one of the great moments in the history of art, Musnet is a coming of age story for the young aspiring artist. Kickliy’s fluid ink and watercolors evoke the magic of the period and the country setting for the story.
Kickliy is the creator of the critically acclaimed Musnet series of books, and Perdy (Image Comics). Musnet was nominated for the 2017 Prix Angouleme for Kids Comics and the 4th volume has been awarded the Silver Medal by the Moonbeam Awards. Kickliy is also an accomplished oil painter. He lives somewhere between Minneapolis and Giverny.
