I need to read it again. It's strange. It's surreal. It's sweet--or rather, it isn't sweet at all. At first glance I was put off by the artwork, but now I see that the artwork (like the story it tells) is strange, surreal, sweet-and-not-sweet-at-all, a mixture of solidity and wispiness with a dose of crafted awkwardness that grows on you the more you look at it. Right now what I like most about this book is that it's a graphic short story rather than a graphic novel. It knows its scope and size and it inhabits them well.
