'Disquiet' Noah Van Sciver
Featuring over a dozen literary comic shorts by acclaimed cartoonist Noah Van Sciver. Whether in his fiction (Fante Bukowski) or nonfiction (The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln), Van Sciver has carved a niche as a keen observer of the human condition, exploring the decisions people make that make, break, and define them. Disquiet showcases the best of his short work, including: “The Death Of Elijah Lovejoy,” the story of the midwestern abolitionist in the 1830s who published a radical newspaper that denounced slavery and provoked local mobs to destroy his printing presses; “The Lizard Who Laughed,” a painfully dysfunctional reunion between an absent father and his adult son; and “Punks V. Lizards,” an anarchic and darkly comic piece of absurdity that blends Quadrophenia with Jurassic Park. As writer/musician Robin Edwards (Lisa Prank) notes in her introduction, “The stories in this book run all over the place … What comes through is wholeheartedly Noah: anxious and funny and depressed and weird and brilliant.”
