"Lemire handles the stuff of a Willa Cather novel with equal poetry . . . He renders emotion and temperment in a cartoon face with breathtaking, masterful economy.”
— Booklist on The Essex County Trilogy

The tiny, isolated fishing village of Large Mouth never saw much excitement — until the arrival of the stranger, that is. Wrapped from head to toe in bandages and wearing weird goggles, he quietly took up residence in the sleepy town’s motel. Driven by curiosity, the townfolk quickly learn the tragic story of his past, and of the terrible accident that left him horribly disfigured. Eventually, the town embraces the stranger as one of their own — but do his bandages hide more than just scars?
Inspired by H.G. Wells’ The Invisible Man, THE NOBODY explores themes of identity, fear and paranoia in a small community from up-and-coming alternative comics creator and Xeric Award-winner Jeff Lemire (The Essex County Trilogy) in a special two-color story that’ll have you guessing until the very end.

Back To Work

Well, it's been crazy time in baby land, but I am managing to slowly get back to my regular work schedule. Not much new art to post right now, but you can listen to the New York Comicon Vertigo Panel with Karen Berger. She talks about The Nobody, and teases another Vertigo project that I am currently 66-pages into....more on that at San Diego I believe.

Also recently started reading the entire run of James Robinson's Starman, god is that a good book. Speaking of good books, you must read Nate Powell's SWALLOW ME WHOLE. It is an absolute masterpiece!

Well, diapers to change and comics to draw...gotta run.
