Father is not very happy with the boy. The boy should have listened to Father. Surely, every boy needs to play, run, and be wild…but the boy can never be free…not really. Now the boy has done something quite bad and made Father very unhappy. Go to your room, young man! But the rooms here are very small, and dark, and cold, and the boy is not very happy in them. No one is happy. But sometimes, even from a bad time, something special and unexpected can blossom.

    Jeff Lemire proves himself an auteur with this comic series yet again. The writing is sharp and emotional. The art is pleasant to look at. I am wondering how he is going to make this a satisfying series in just six issues. Read Full Review
