The Lifelike graphic novel is a diverse collection of slice-of-life stories...and beyond. 

Each vignette, illustrated by a different artist, presents a glimpse into distinct corners of the world outside our window. Not limited to the cliched autobiographical tales so often associated with the genre, the tales in this collection range from noir crime and love stories to war memoirs and humorous conversation pieces. A multicultural, multiethnic cast of characters infuses the book with a realism often missing from today's comics. 

Lifelike features the work of 11 talented artists from 3 different countries, and an introduction by award-winning cartoonist Derf. 112 pages, full color. 

Testimonials and Reviews

"Really inventive stuff." -- Sam Kieth (The Maxx, Batman, Four Women) 

"...a book that is visually diverse but beautiful to look at, and held together by the strength of Naraghi's writing." -- Alan David Doane, Comic Book Galaxy)

"There are so many different visual styles here, and Naraghi is such a versatile storyteller, that they barely seem to be part of the same series, but there's something that links them together, a great storyteller's sensibility." -- Cory Doctorow, Nebula & Locus award-winning novelist

"Grade A storytelling." -- Jack's Webcomic Reviews

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
