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 smattering of short comics that left me really desiring more. escalator has the signature interesting settings and fun characters that i've come to expect of brandon graham. the book is cool. he's cool. there's nothing bad to be said. so read it. like. now.
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.
