I went into this comic knowing nothing about it, and I recommend staying as close to that as possible. The back cover text gives away too much in my opinion, so I’d avoid it (and website descriptions of the book, etc) if at all possible.
I picked this up because of the intriguing cover and being previously familiar with Meredith McClaren’s amazing art. Her self written comic Hinges is a joy. Her style and versatility is a perfect match for Kelly Thompson’s desperate tale of adult heartbreak, emptiness, and growth.
There are parts I wish we’re fleshed out a little more and a couple of lingering questions, but overall Emma’s journey is wondrous, intense, and thought provoking. All beautifully brought to life by Thompson and McClaren.
I won’t go further to avoid spoiling anything, but I highly recommend Heart in a Box.
I rooted for Emma all the way, even as she wrestled with her conscience about the fallout from her choices. Life isn't always pretty. But by the end of the book, Emma has grown. And I doubt she'll make the same mistakes twice.
I first came across Thompson from her comics blogging, and I'm so thrilled to see her pursuing this path with her writing. She's very talented. McClaren's art may not be for everyone. It's a bit complicated. But it makes you love the characters, since it's clear she loves them so much herself. They all have great hair, too.
