This comic book, the latest addition to the burgeoning Ignatz Comics line from Coconino Press and Fantagraphics Books, asks the question, "Is it possible to intelligently examine domesticity in a comic book?" The five all new pieces in this deluxe magazine format edition by one of the strongest talents on the comics scene today provide the answer, and the answer is, "Yes." All five pieces focus on the quotidian reality of Kevin Huizenga's graphic alter ego, Glenn Ganges, and his wife, Wendy. Thoughts, concepts and stories are converted to images in Huizenga's trademarked fashion, and combined with text and dialogue commentaries to create a dialectical rendering of the tension between subjectivity and objectivity and various attempts -- characterized by their youthful callowness and longing curiosity -- at locating a harmonious balance between the two. Underlying it all is Huizenga's perennial concern with time. Specifically, with the irreconcilable divide between our individual, human, subjective experience of time, and its universal, inhuman, objective reality. Recommended. NOW OUT OF PRINT.
