Read from May 05 to 06, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 1

... nerdy, corny, ingenious in a Christopher Nolan sort of way ... mathematical but not in a story-killing way ... but also innocent and sweet and, because of its sweetness, chilling ...... bug-eyed, fat-bodied drawings with production seams showing -- grey washes making stray splash marks and splotchy texture, paste-up shadows ... Shiga misspells it "explaination", but in the end I liek it more for its handmade flaws and handmade care. The entire thing takes place inside a phone booth -- 44 pages, 6 panels per page inside a phone booth -- and doesn't get repetitive -- it uses repetition in the good hypnotic way ...... Shiga cheats on perspective so that the phone booth's interior is roomier than it actually would be. Fleep performs a similar trick on psychic space -- it echoes deeper and longer than its modest suspense/thriller container would suggest.
