98. Incidents in the Night, Vol. 1
Written & Drawn by David B.
Published by Uncivilized Books
"Conspiracies. Messianic figures. The power of the written world. The quest for immortality. The inevitability of death. These are the central elements to David B’s excellent, surreal tale, tinged with enough of a pulp sensibility to keep things from getting too profound. Here archeologists literally comb through mountains of books, while a centuries-old madman seeks to cheat the grim reaper by literally inserting himself into a text. Deftly blending horror, humor, melodrama and philosophy, Incidents is a book I’ve been anxious to see translated into English and I’m so grateful to Uncivilized Books for taking on the task this year."
