Really enjoyed this graphic novel, the short stories created a flow that was like visual poetry and struck all the feels many of us know or can relate to in our own lives and experiences. His use of darkness in his illustrations creates a nice void for the mind to fill the gaps and silence.

One of my favorite comic book collections. Nate's illustrations are incredibly original and cool, and his stories are equally impressive. Buy it, twice. Nate is also a really amazing person. I met him a few years back when his band, Soophie Nun Squad, played an amazing show, and he's an incredibly nice person.

not only is this a good alternative graphic novel, with a storyline that builds good characters and talks about serious and surreal thinks and has nothing to do with superhero junk, the art is amazing. nate powell uses thick black like nobody else.

Nate Powell is a beautiful artist, but his stories leave much to be desired in the comprehension department. As in, what the fuck is going on? But really, that hardly matters, because seriously, these drawings are breath taking.

stories, eh... you love motorhead, your friend apparently found a job and shows up at your house in a suit, therefore you are jerk to friend, because... but I do wish I could draw like this misguided young fellow.

This seemed a lot better when I was a moody 20 year old but I'll still take it over like 99.9999% of other personal comics. I just wish my library would stock his other books.
Greg
Just breathtaking. There were pages I didn't want to turn past, they were so good.

Although I can appreciate it, the disjointed narrative just isn't for me.
