Only 88 pages and yet captures the lives of ten anti heroes in the quaint hamlet of Ice Haven Oh, and in this short content contains possible murder, throwbacks to Leopold and Loeb, multiple narratives that twist and stumble over each other, misanthropes, misfits, underachievers, loners, introverts, oddballs, and wandererspersonality traits of a trademark Daniel Clowes graphic novel.And like every other Clowes graphic novel, I relished every grotesque minute of it I highly recommend reading this one twice to really get into the depth of the mystery of this bizarre town and it s eccentric citizens. Co worker saw me reading this over lunch and commented oh, some high level reading, huh because it s got, y know, pictures Never mind that it s actually written for adults, making it maybe a higher level book than 80% of what I ve been reading anyway Grumble.Because Dan Clowes is not an easy, breezy read Ice Haven has a pretty large cast, all of whom have their own individual dramas going on, and every drama is given the same weight from the parents whose son has been missing for a week to the boy in love with his new stepsister It s not as linear a story as Ghost World, but it s all interconnected, making this one long comic strip narrative rather than a bunch of separate stories.I wouldn t be me if I didn t have one complaint, and that s that Clowes lettering is so tiny and his comics so wordy that it can sometimes be difficult to decipher There was one panel I stared at for a long time, trying to figure out why a woman responded to bad news by clutching her husband and crying oh, my god, tacos , before realizing that the all capped TACOS was actually JACOB. Presented as a series of Sunday comics style vignettes, this interconnected story of kidnapping, unrequited love, art, and the psycho sexual drama in Small Town America is WAY complex and thought provoking than its short 81 pages would lead you to believe A dark portrait of suburban ennui that poses questions than it answers, while still feeling satisfying by the end It had me enraptured the entire time. I enjoyed this than Ghost World and much than Twentieth Century Eightball There was cohesion and meat to this story than the other two of Clowes that I have read The reader meets an array of characters from the city of Ice Haven and through their individual yet connected stories, a crime is solved during the course of the book. I don t think I have it in me to review anything by Daniel Clowes It s always a fabulous, surreal, and every other emotion experience to read his works The same goes for Ice Haven I liked it less than I did Ghost World or Death Ray, but it has its distinct charms, each so well put on paper that the reader can t help but be in awe of Clowes genius One question why is the font so small As many others have noted, Clowes enters Sherwood Anderson territory here in this multi narrative exploration of the woebegone citizens of Ice Haven While there are some piercing moments here the last three pages in particular this is also pretty well traveled ground the sad lives of mundane middle Americans although the Leopold and Loeb motif is a dark wrinkle I was most intrigued by the piece s formal elements, the novel told in individual comic strips done in various styles that serve as homages to pastiches of other classic strips, the Peanuts being one obvious example. found this at a thrift store, totally stoked to read it yeah two dollars fifteen cents Over a couple weeks in the summer of 2005, I 1 Quit my job2 Bought this book3 Went on vacation to the Jersey Shore with my friend4 Read this book, on the beach enjoyed it 5 Came home and returned this book to Barnes Noble because I was unemployed and needed the money back.It was kind of a great time.The BN Lending Library, I called it It s okay because they re hardcover This was not the only time that I did such a thing, and it s not that this is an ethically wonderful idea that I would recommend But if what you really feel you ve got to do is take that brand new book on vacation, and you ve got bigger problems with no health insurance or credit card, I would say that, well, have a great time It s hardcover. Think Thornton Wilder s Our Town as a comic.
