Sympathische Indie-Horror-Story, die ich irgendwo zwischen Sala und Burns verorten würde. Junge alleinerziehende Mutter kehrt nach dem Tod ihres Mannes von New York nach Florida zurück, wo ihre Mutter lebt. Dort benehmen sich die Nachbarn äußerst merkwürdig, und Paranoia heißt bekanntlich nicht, dass man nicht verfolgt wird...
Ich hätte mir plotmässig etwas mehr Substanz gewünscht, aber dann wäre es eine andere Art des Erzählens und der spezifische Charm wäre vermutlich auf der Strecke geblieben.

Recommends it for: fans of Palomar stories by Gilbert Hernandez
Recommended to HeavyReader by: Philip Simon
This graphic novel reminded me A LOT of the Palomar stories from Love & Rockets by Gilbert Hernandez.

Like the Palomar Stories, this graphic novel has an unreal, dreamlike, even nightmarish quality. Things happen that couldn't quite be real. But do those things really happen, or are they just in the main character's head? Hard to tell, but in either case, creepy.

The art is much like Gilbert Hernandez's too. Everyone but the main character and her young daughter look just a little...off.

Creepy

Better than 8 1/2 Ghosts, because this longer story allows for development of the characters. But still disappointing that it all boils down to "neurotic hipster bitch can't handle small-town, suburban life." I guess the suburbs are still scary to some people, but get into those horrors as opposed to making the lead character seem like someone who is still concerned about the coolness of her music collection or the cache of living in New York.

Imagine the normal as weird of Daniel Clowes meets the weird as normal of Charles Burns. Fun stuff.
