Old Souls on the other hand, is a rare experience for me because I also read this all in one sitting. And I plan on reading it again, because here’s a story that truly knows itself. The author clearly knows what story he is telling from beginning to end, and it certainly shows. There’s just no “fat” on this story; every scene is necessary and plays an important function to the greater story as a whole.
Plus the art is beautiful, clean, and reminds me of Will Eisner books, whom I am a big fan of.
I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting an emotional, crystal clear story to pour over again and again.
Les McClaine’s art has a similar efficiency, with a clean spare style in 3 colors that reminds me a bit of Daniel Clowe’s Ghost world. In particular McClaine’s drawing of Pacific Northwest apartments is spot on. If I have one critique it’s that his character designs are somewhat wide ranging, from fairly natural for most characters to quite cartoony for others.
Overall I think this is a great graphic novel for someone looking to pick up a unique story tackling some big questions.
