The abc’s of Truckhead by Nate Neal
If Iâ€™ve only seen two comics where thereâ€™s a page for each letter of the alphabet,is it OK to compare them even if they have nothing to do with each other? I thought so. This one is much more complex, sure. The art is more intricate, the writing (or at least the concepts) for the pages is better, but for some reason it didnâ€™t make me smile as much. Maybe Iâ€™m a simple lad, or maybe Iâ€™m just sad, but this book does hold up pretty well on its own. Like the title says, each page in here starts with a letter of the alphabet. â€œKâ€ and â€œLâ€ sum up the complexities of this book nicely. â€œKâ€ is for â€œKarmaâ€, and itâ€™s a one page epic of screwing, leaving and beer. â€œLâ€ is for â€œLethargyâ€, and itâ€™s a simple cartoon about doing nothing. Truckhead doesnâ€™t say much, but then, he does have a truck for a head. This book is much more complicated than the title might suggest. Lots of the pages look like a ton of thought went into making them, and you couldnâ€™t really ask him to spend more time with the art.
