Kazu Kabuishi's Copper is a collection of the webcomic of the same name featuring a twenty-something loner and his dog as they go on a series of adventures.

While they surf, cross gigantic mushroom patches, build planes, or simply play a video game, it's hard not to notice a theme of quiet sadness throughout. Both Copper and his dog struggle with loneliness, the sense of mortality, and even potential abandonment as the two face numerous challenges.

Regardless, Kabuishi's clean, colorful, art style will draw the reader in and playful storytelling will do the rest. Well worth the limited time it takes.
