it was amazing

This is a sort of midlife crisis story--or maybe later-than-midlife-crisis story told in graphic novel form, where the drawings are really adding to the interpretation of the story. For instance, characters appear differently based on how they are being perceived by the main character or how they are perceiving themselves in context of the main character. Okay, that probably didn't help clarify much, but if you pick this up, you'll know what I mean. The story is much more about character than plot, and will stick with you like a good, quiet movie.
