I just happened to grab this comic with barely a glance over the blurb--unusual for me considering I'm more deliberate when purchasing comics. And what a wonderful impulse buy! This is an interesting, mysterious, meta fable into the history and industry of comics, looking into which stories are told and which aren't, with an interesting Maori influence to boot.

*******

Counting as my "written and drawn by the same person" item for the Panels Read Harder challenge. ( )

I enjoyed the art and the storytelling, but overall was a little too "inside baseball of the comics world" for me to love it. ( )

un libro denso di messaggi misteriosi, di storie dentro altre storie,di poesia e amore, amore per i fumetti.
E' impossibile raccontare anche sommariamente la trama di questo libro, anche il riassunto che troverete nella sua quarta di copertina non rappresenta che una piccolissima porzione di quello che ci troverete dentro.
Un piccolo,raffinatissimo e commuovente gioiello di cui consiglio la lettura a tutti. ( )

Leonard Batts a reporter for a comice review journal goes to Hicksville in New Zealand to do research on Dick Burger, a famous comic book writer. When he gets there he meets tons of quirky people, many of whom are very angry at Dick. Over the course of the story you learn more about the town, Dick and the people that he used to be friends with, eventually finding out just what Dick did that was so bad.

I really loved this. Watching Leonard try to figure out how to interact with the town was funny b/c he just couldn't wrap his head around everyone hating Dick in the beginning. Sam Zabel's Star strips were a great way to convey what happened between him and Dick and I really liked Moxie and Toxie. They were a great way to show what was going on in Sam's brain.

I loved Mrs. Hicks and her library and if I could live forever in the Lighthouse, I would b/c the idea of what resides in the Lighthouse is just AMAZING.

It just killed me (in a good way) that we never found out who drew the comic that Leonard was recieving. Although there may have been hints and I just totally missed it.

I also loved that the author's Introduction was written as a comic strip, it felt really appropriate.

Honestly I could go on and on about all the things I loved but I think that I am going to stop here. ( )

The entire book can be daunting, leaving the reader with a feeling of being lost. It’s dense with ideas, some of which are seen and some of which are only sensed without being understood.
