Everyone in Jeff Lemire's books look tired. Even the kids, with their long faces and outlines of bags under their eyes. But it works because before you even read a page, you can tell these people have lived.

Jack's wife is about to give birth to their first child and the pressure is on. As an underwater welder, he is no stranger to pressure, but this is nothing like he has ever experienced before. Becoming a father for the first time is making Jack more nervous than he realizes and when he almost dies during a routine dive, he begins to examine his own childhood.

Very quick read, but as always, beautiful artwork on each page that you have to slow down and appreciate.

Side Note: I think I just need to read 'Essex County' and I will be caught upon all of Lemire's original works.
