One of our Gosh! Best of 2019 titles! The long-awaited new book from one of the greatest storytellers in comic could certainly be said to be a bit of an event. Not technically a totally new work, collecting and expanding on work from recent volumes of Acme Novelty Library, it nonetheless finds new life as a cohesive whole: a meditation on the human condition told through the stories of six characters in the American Midwest. As you might expect from a Ware book, it's dense, boldly formalist (except when he doesn't want it to be), darkly humourous and thoroughly miserable (in a good way). Undoubtedly one of the must-reads of the year.
