Imagine if Double Indemnity was directed by a drug induced Chuck Jones. This somewhat describes Francesca Ghermandi's nightmarishly strange and confusing noir thriller. Told through many different perspectives, The Wipeout, is given an experimental feel to maximize the protagonists isolation and confusion. The plot is incomprehensible, but it only adds to the out of control momentum that drives this book on a roller coaster track to limbo.

This book is amazing, surreal, and wonderful-- full of feeling. The art is fantastic-- I highly recommend it, especially for people who don't like comics with words! :)
