Taylor does a great job of highlighting an unusual predicament the antagonist has to deal with on a daily basis. It is very well written and you really cannot help but feel pity for the character as he does not have the ability to live a normal life. Ponczeck’s art helps tell Taylor’s story, it is detailed and very sharp in the characterization with some panels blank and simple, it’s borderline Manga in appearance.
A book that makes you stop and think. It’s well worth a look, do ya’self a favor and check it out!
