congratulations! semifinalist in goodreads' best graphic novels & comics category 2016!
i may have done myself a disservice by reading Dark Matter immediately before reading this book.
both are stories in which a man who loses a beloved woman tries to get her back through science fiction-y means and whose mistakes along the way have horrifying personal consequences i only partially understand. this one is easier on my brain because it doesn't actually try to explain the science and also there are pictures for me to look at...
the two books use different SF concepts to tell their stories, but they're similar enough that i was all, "didn't i just...?" once this one started trotting off into that direction.
i will say it's pleasantly unpredictable. i had no intention of reading this - i'm not a fan of clowes' drawing style, and i've only ever read Ghost World, to which my reaction was 'meh.'
but i had picked this up for connor and he soon pushed it right back at me, declaring that he had 'accidentally' read it; he had meant to just check out the first couple of pages and before he knew it, he'd finished the whole thing and he thought i should read it, too. that kind of enthusiastic response from someone who doesn't read a ton was enough to make me willing to give clowes another shot since if the story is strong, i don't need to be into the art.
and even though i'm still medium on the book, i really do enjoy being surprised, and i did not anticipate that a book with this starting point
would go where it did.
and i didn't hate the art - some of it hit my smalltown sad people buttons
it just wasn't the book to change my mind about whether dan clowes is the graphic novelist for me. he is not. but much respect.
come to my blog!

Read information about the authorDaniel Gillespie Clowes is an Academy Award-nominated American author, screenwriter and cartoonist of alternative comic books. Most of Clowes' work appears first in his anthology Eightball (1989-2004), a collection of self-contained narratives and serialized graphic novels. Several of these narratives have been collected published separately as graphic novels, most notably Ghost World. With filmmaker Terry Zwigoff, Clowes adapted Ghost World into the 2000 film of the same name, and also adapted another Eightball story into the 2006 film Art School Confidential. Before Eightball, Clowes worked on comic book series Lloyd Llewellyn, which in the later issues stronger foreshadowed some of the social criticism of his work with Eightball.
