    The Comic Addiction - Aziz Bawany Jul 8, 2009

    Like so many edgy noir moments, Lemire captures a shades-of-grey feeling incredibly well, and by the time the book ends, it leaves the question about who reader's should favor as the hero and who the true villain is. As we examine our own sense of place in our world and define who we are in the community, the invisible man will follow is a mirror upon the soul to bring out the worst, and highlight the best. It doesn't hurt that the few crazy people in this book turn out in some ways to be the most noble, and that Jeff Lemire is deserving of all the praise heaped upon him by the comics community with The Nobody as a successful work and Sweet Tooth soon to follow.

    This comic is Lemire before his prime time. His writing here is quite complex and creative - the author tries to reliably present the emotions of the characters. How is it coming out? Pretty good. The main character's alienation is well shown, he is someone whose fate interests the reader. We wonder who he is and why is he running away? And although the answers to these questions are not too difficult to guess, reading is quite engaging. Mainly because the author simply knows how to write about human emotions. And while the strongest titles in his bibliography were yet to come, "The Nobody" is also a comic book worth attention.
