One of the most original cartoonists working today, Tim Lane makes comics that, while drawing from a similar stylistic well as Charles Burns, John Hankiewicz, and the Beats, are thoroughly his own. The Lonesome Go mixes multiple episodic storylines into sketchbook musings, photographs, epigraphs and lyrics that dart at and subtly reveal aspects of his “Great American Mythological Drama”: a surreal mélange of identity, darkness, love, loneliness and betrayal. In a comics scene rife with copycats and half-baked effort, this book successfully carves its own space, on its own terms. There’s never been another one like it. Highly recommended. 296 page softcover, 8″ x 10.75″, color covers, black and white interiors. (Fantagraphics) FOR MATURE READERS
