Unique illustrations and overlapping plot lines, Exceptional
on September 28, 1999
This foray into the full graphic novel has proven quite successful for an innovative artist. The intricate, interwoven plots address issues few would expect from a first novel. The author/illustrator reaches out to those of us who have experienced life in "an isolated farming community" and experienced not fitting in. His character Chunky is touching and realistic. He knows that carrying his home on his back is not the best, but that he must make the best of it. The author also emphasized the point that each individual must seek out to find that one place, that one lifestyle that will make them happy, regardless of the obstacles.
I was also impressed by the mosaic illustrations. A very creative view of the mundane and allows the reader to discover many things on their own. I am looking forward to further works by this newcomer.
Overall, I am raving over a book by a fellow I am proud of!
