The Death Ray: a short, subtle and understatedly surreal take on the popular tale of superpowers and responsibility. Clowes gives us another set of lonely, awkward, paranoid, frustrated and self-deprecating characters who touch the worst parts of ourselves, but with humour. The tragic characters and the juxtaposition of the mundane with the extraordinary elevates The Death Ray to the heights of Clowes' earlier masterpiece Ghost World.
