The debut graphic novel by Sylvia Nickerson, Creation presents an up close and personal look at living in Hamilton, Ontario that simultaneously confronts urban angst, inter- and intra-personal conflicts, the emotional conduits that run through domesticity and creativity – all in the context of a shifting cityscape that is responding to the pressures of globalization – in 192 pages in black and white and gray.
Eleanor Davis says, "Sylvia Nickerson allows the profoundly personal to be completely universal in her stark, soft drawings and faceless figures. This is a deeply human, generous book."
Seth sayeth, "Way back in the stone age, when I first began making comic books for adults, it was with hopes that books like this would follow. Sylvia Nickerson's Creation is filled with the deep, complicated, messy stuff of real life – hard, sad, funny, insightful, and very rich in empathy."
