From the Publisher:
An expectant father, Mendleman's life goes through an upheaval when he discovers he can no longer earn a living doing the work that defines him--making well-crafted rugs by hand. A proud artisan, he takes his donkey-drawn cart to the market only to be turned away when the distinctive shop he once sold to now only stocks cheaply manufactured merchandise. As the realities of the market place sink in, Mendleman unravels. Sturm draws a quiet, reflective and beautiful portrait of eastern European in the early 1900s--bringing to life the hustle and bustle of an old-world market place on the brink of the Industrial Revolution. Market Day is a timeless tale of how economic and social forces can affect a single life.Mendleman's life goes through an upheaval when he discovers that he can no longer earn a living for his growing family doing the work that defines him--making well-crafted rugs by hand.

Praise

"For nearly two decades , [Sturm] has been drawing masterful graphic stories that, however elegant in their visual simplicity, have failed to garner the attention given to louder, flashier comics. The creator of a work as rich as MARKET DAY deserves a better fate...." - Gordon Flagg 03/15/2010

"Sturm's thorough knowledge of what his chosen medium can do allows him to accomplish something that's all his own....[I]n the span of only two or three gracefully composed panels, Sturm captures the thrill of artistic inspiration with a directness and economy only possible in comics." - Glen Weldon 04/12/2010

"Sturm has infused his reliably disciplined storytelling style with slow pacing and spare graphics, but some bravura sequences give the story impact." 03/08/2010

"Mr. Sturm's images--a human step here, a donkey clop there, the turn of the cart's wheel--are as palpably calming as the regularity of the ritualistic counting." - George Gene Gustines 04/25/2010
