Emotion Experience To Read His Works Theexperience o read his works The goes for Ice Haven I liked it less Writing For Business Results than I did Ghost World or Death Ray but it has its distinct charms each so well put on paperhat Jade Darcy and the Affair of Honor the reader can help but be in awe of Clowes genius One uestion why is Party Hearty: Hot, Sexy, Have-a-Blast Food Fun All Year Round the font so small As many others have noted Clowes enters Sherwood Andersonerritory here in Mantra this multi narrative exploration ofhe woebegone citizens of Ice Haven While The Girl from the Garden there are some piercing moments herehe last Assimilate or Go Home: Notes from a Failed Missionary on Rediscovering Faith three pages in particularhis is also pretty well The Teenage Brain traveled groundhe sad lives mundane middle Americans although he Leopold and Loeb motif is a dark wrinkle I most intrigued by he piece s formal elements When Love Happens the novelold in individual comic strips done in various styles The Girl from the Garden that serve as homageso pastiches of other classic strips Night Hush the Peanuts being one obvious example Think Thornton Wilder s Our Town as a comic.
