Noah Van Sciver has been quietly making comics since 2006. Now, in 2015 he can look back on a solid body of work of ever increasing quality. Some of the very best has now been collected in this volume from AdHouse Books. The 100 pages of comics on offer here range from self-deprecating autobio to wryly ironic satire, and include forays into traditional genres such as folk tales and science fiction (with a sociological twist), but the core of his work are the deeply empathic tales of humble twenty-somethings trying to get by in our mixed up world. Well developed characters are presented with a pithy psychological verisimilitude that draws the reader in and holds them there. Van Sciver is working in the tradition of R. Crumb, David Collier, and middle-period Chester Brown, producing gritty, emotionally rich comics that ring true. Carve a moment out of your busy day to read the comics in this generous PDF preview.
