Will's a melancholy building inspector who's been grieving the loss of his puzzle-loving daughter for years. After getting a mysterious phone call from a girl claiming it's her and that she's trapped in a labyrinth Will sets off on a journey fighting through the corridors, tunnels, and monsters of his city on a mission to bring her back home.

"At times somber, haunting, perplexing and ultimately consoling, this book drops us into the rabbit hole of memory and explores how the editing suite of our minds can shape us, break us and hopefully renew us." -David Dastmalchian

    Mazebook is moving along well and while it may be following what feels like a traditional path, it's the characters and trappings that are making it engaging. In addition to the great artwork. Lemire always puts himself into some interesting projects that feel like a different kind of passion project when he does the artwork for it and this one really clicks well with the cast and age of the characters here. I love the slower pace and lengthier page count in order to give it room to breathe so that an issue doesn't feel like it ends too quickly or is too rushed with what it has to do. I'm eager to see what's next but am still wary of what's really happening here. Read Full Review

    I think I've already said that Mazebook is "peak-Jeff Lemire," but that's something that becomes more apparent with each passing issue. Read Full Review
