'Barking is everything comics should strive to be . . . a powerful and haunting metaphor for mental health, and the human condition, that you'll never forget' Jeff Lemire Alix Otto is having a very bad day. Easily her worst so far. A year since they fished her friend's body from the river, she finds herself hounded, haunted and driven to the brink. Caught in a situation she can't explain, Alix is handed over to the professionals and sectioned, left alone in a labyrinthine system with her delusions running wild... Barking is a tale of grief, madness and the ghosts that haunt us.
