"Downer" and "Chris Ware" go well together. No surprise that this one is depressing as well. But I really like how he graphically potrayed a newborn's view of the world as well as an old man dying. Perhaps the all-time saddest comic panel I have ever seen - after the young boy's mother dies, he doesn't understand where she is, what's going on. He runs to her closet and holds one of her dresses as he cries out for her. Crushing sorrow.
