This epic graphic novel takes readers to the early 1960s back streets and alleyways of Newark, New Jersey. Its 250, blocky, horizontally formatted pages are filled with harsh black and white artwork that combines elements that are at least reminiscent of Richard Sala and Lynda Barry in its figures and Ben Katchor in its streetscapes, all of which merges together seamlessly to create a solid cartoon universe (You can read the first chapter here, to see what we're talking about.). And, as an added bonus, this graphic novel comes complete with its own flexi-disc record (red "vinyl"!) of music written and recorded by the official Iron Bound band, the Newark Wanderers. Here's a review on PopMatters, and here's the TCJ take.
