  • Unreal textures, use of light, and storytelling all without words Dreamy in the most eerie, unsettling of ways.



  • Some great artwork here This story was easier to understand than some of Lynd Ward s other wordless novels, but I feel like I didn t connect much with what I understood The protagonist has an odd upper lip that I thought at first was a mustache I later read that it was Ward s intention to make the protagonist physically ugly I feel like this doesn t come across because the character is also young and strong his face just seems poorly illustrated.I really liked the alternating colors of the panel [...]


  • Really loved this Intriguing, if a bit inscrutable in parts The shocker on page 43 is impressive, if, well, shocking Especially for a member of my generation, not used to discussing that part of our history.I take issue with only one thing, the comment in the back jacket blurb which declares this work as being about, a unique individual working, and aspiring to dream in an overwhelming mass society I there s to it than that, even if I can t quite tell you what it is.


  • ok, the art is great as with anything ward did the story on this one didn t grab me as hard as god s man and vertigo, but maybe that s my own fault.
