No matter the types of comics you read, it's more than likely you've heard of Daniel Clowes or the legendary Ghost World. Monica is his first comic since 2016's Patience and might be my favourite of his works so far. I'm going to be careful not to spoil any part of this book for you, so bear with me. Monica is a collection of 9 short stories, narrated by characters within the book, which stand as a chronicle of the American experience from the Vietnam war up until some point in the near future. There's a chronology to some of the stories, but it's your job to decide what you think is 'fiction' within the logic of the book, or what's actually happening. It's a touching, funny, sometimes horrific but utterly engrossing work of the medium with the incredible, clean comic art you expect from Clowes. I defy you to open the book to see the opening panel of the first story 'Foxhole' and not want to devour the whole thing.
