Posted on July 18, 2019 |
By Christopher Ross



PANTON — As manure runoff from a Panton dairy farm mixed with snowmelt and found its way into Lake Champlain this past March, a wrinkled brown crust formed on top of the water.

For a moment during Panton resident Eben Markowski’s video footage of it, the crust looked like a moonscape or a desert.

The illusion was broken when Markowski dipped a plastic cup into the water and held it in front of his camera. A brown-gray sludge clung to side of the cup. When he poured it back, it hit the water with a chunky blurping sound.

MIDDLEBURY — Comics are for kids. They should be light-hearted, fun and simple.

Um, nope.

Sure, some comics are geared toward the young at heart, but the graphic novel genre is vast and covers topics that are anything but juvenile.

“Tell me what you like to read, and I can find it for you in a graphic novel,” said Jeremy Holt, whose eighth publication, “Before Houdini” (art by John Lucas), hits shelves this week. This is a companion novel to his earlier released “After Houdini” (art also done by John Lucas).
