Escalator is a series of short comics, all by Brandon Graham. Although I routinely read short science fiction stories and anthologies, it's much rarer for me to come across comics anthologies.

A lot of is it autobiographical or semi-autobiographical and that adds a little something special to the stories as well.

I read Escalator and to be honest half the time I couldn't understand the writing or understand the comic. But I love the art work and the last comic story.
