    Conceptually, this feels a bit of a mess. There's a town full of weird people, literally weird people - half-animal people, mutant people with extra heads or limbs, etc. And everybody lives their lives, sure they've noticed the weirdness, but they just keep on truckin'. And then there is an outsider. And there's someone hunting the outsider, a psychopath killing people with a nail gun. No Country For Old Mutants. I think it was a mistake for there to be an instigating reason why this place is lik Conceptually, this feels a bit of a mess. There's a town full of weird people, literally weird people - half-animal people, mutant people with extra heads or limbs, etc. And everybody lives their lives, sure they've noticed the weirdness, but they just keep on truckin'. And then there is an outsider. And there's someone hunting the outsider, a psychopath killing people with a nail gun. No Country For Old Mutants. I think it was a mistake for there to be an instigating reason why this place is like it is - it's a MacGuffin-like reason, but I'll go along with it. It makes the weird more normal. It grounds it in a way that makes it both less interesting, and more illogical. The outsider remains a boring cypher of a character. The killer is never chilling. I'm still not sure what the point is of any of it.

    To start the review off weird, the vibes of this book could be described as the perfect intersect in a venn diagram between Welcome to Night Vale, Fables, and Rango...and honestly if that’s not what you’re looking for then this probably isn’t for you. King of Nowhere is strange and beautiful, it kept me captivated through the whole story, even when i was confused. Also i think this is a self contained story? So that’s nice, stand-alone comics are a personal favourite of my wallet.

King of Nowhere is strange and beautiful, it kept me captivated through the whole story, even when i was confused. Also i think this is a self contained story? So that’s nice, stand-alone comics are a personal favourite of my wallet. Denis, our main character, sucks. So if you need a likeable character, maybe skip this one, but I don’t think that’s a huge issue for most graphic novel readers, so I digress. The side characters are mostly likeable, or spooky, and the artwork on each character is really fantastic since there doesn’t seem to be any limits on what the people of Nowhere can look like. SLIGHT SPOILERS (no major plot points just rants): Personally i wasn’t much of a fan of the cat-cop (did she even have a name?), i feel like she could have been a really fun character but was underused and underdeveloped and only kind of randomly was scattered throughout the story to remind us that ? the sheriff had a family ? or something ? i don’t really know what her purpose was but her character was lame. I also though Denis’s “past” that catches up with him was kinda lame, he could have had a bit more of a connection to everything than THAT, couldn’t have he? Anyway I don’t want to say anymore because of spoilers but that was a bit of a letdown. I could have probably spent a bit more time with these characters if i’m being honest, but that’s usually my complaint with anything.

    Starts off very weird then as issues keep coming answers arrive. It reminded me of a trippy jeff lemire, (weird town conspiracy). The art is great.

    A novella that starts out as perhaps a man's fevered dream ends up being a touching story about family and community, and all the while warning people to be careful about how much they trust their government and elders. When Denis wakes from another round of drinking he finds himself in a small town/city where people literally are not what they appear. A sheriff's deputy with cat ears, a man with two heads, an alcoholic who's body is a humanoid version of an air breathing fish.

When Denis wakes from another round of drinking he finds himself in a small town/city where people literally are not what they appear. A sheriff's deputy with cat ears, a man with two heads, an alcoholic who's body is a humanoid version of an air breathing fish. To them everything is normal, and to Denis he thinks he has fallen off the wagon and deserted his wife and newborn (which essentially he has). This does begin as what I thought was a tale about one's man personal demons manifesting themselves during his apparent waking hours. The reality makes this a much better story than I anticipated at the beginning, and as per usual I'm not giving away the big story shift.

    Pretty basic story about redemption and creating your own family. A drunk stumbles into a town filled with mutants and humanoid animals and finds himself among fellow outcasts. The story felt rushed and would have benefited from a second or third volume to build out the world and the central conflict. The art bumped this up to three stars. The trippy watercolors and creative panel layouts supported the atmosphere where the story fell short.
