it was amazing

This is like nothing I have read before. I guess “read” only covers part of the experience, as words are sparsely used, and act as framing for the incredible art that dominates every page.
This is a haunting tale of a young woman cautiously travelling through a collapsed society, heading for the coast, and something lost. Through her narrative (and sometimes from the powerful artwork alone) we slowly figure out what has happened, and what she is seeking, as pieces of the puzzle drop into place.
This is a story that will stay with me a long while, but the pictures even more so - the post apocalyptic decay of a disconcertingly familiar-yet-anomalous 1997 is intoxicating, and seem impossibly real.
I loved it!
