Recommended for: Chris Ware fans and perennial questioners
Read in August, 2007

Teetering in and out of reality and an anti-depressant induced dreamland, The Boy Detective Fails follows former child detective prodigy Billy Argo as he comes to the slow realization that a rational mind can't solve all of life's mysteries. The wry, morose post-modernism will remind you more than a little of Jimmy Corrigan.

Smartest Kid on Earth vs. Boy Detective...
I think Billy would win the deathmatch.
