    Issue #9 ends with LDB getting the movie theater job. His joy at being employed is not sufficient to overpower his dismay at working at a movie theater. Struble leaves the issue with that, forcing us to wait until issue 10 to see how LDB handles gainful employment. By the end of issue #9, you’ll feel a connection to LDB that you don’t understand. Struble puts it in all the issues. That feeling is you identifying and commiserating with the hero. It’s powerful stuff; I just wish Li’l Depressed Boy came out every week so I could find out what happens next in the very real world or a very surreal character. As always, Sina Grace’s art is sweet and beautiful. He adds texture to the story and gives a sense of how LDB sees the world. His work draws you in just as much as Struble’s writing.
