For some reason, this graphic novel didn't really move me. The artwork is probably the most interesting part. It's sort of a collage/art deco/steampunk sort-of style that one typically doesn't see in comics all that much. The story is about a land where time has, quite literally, stopped. One day, 314 identical "dapper" men descend on the planet and attempt to get things going again. The answer lies in a young boy and his robot companion. I don't know if the numbers are supposed to mean anything or not, but the rest of the story also feels too oblique for its intended audience.
