Sharp, Jeff – In A Lonely Place


In A Lonely Place

There’s a fine line for me between a comic being cute and interesting, and cute but so cute that it’s almost unbearable. Unfortunately, and even with the sadness throughout, this one falls in the latter category. It’s the story of a snail and a slug going through life, each one of them alone and sad. They meet each other by chance, have a great time, and I won’t spoil what happens next. I like how the book looks, both in production and art, it’s just annoying to me sometimes to spend $3 on a book and be able to read it in about 1 minute. Well, I guess it’s obvious that this didn’t do anything for me. Neat idea, kind of depressing though. Check out the website. All kinds of stuff there to see, also some stuff from the fantastic Scott Mills.
