Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Chad Roe, executive for the Eter-No-Mark company, sinks into despair when a lawsuit ruins his company and then awakens the next morning to find that he's been given a full-body tattoo with his own "ultra-permanent" unremovable markers. This is bad enough, but the next day is 9/11, and he watches as the Twin Towers come down. Reeling, he ends up going on a drug-fueled, kaleidoscopic journey into a shell-shocked United States, finding unreasoning hatred and destruction but also solace and hope. Although some prominent comics writers are eschewing captions for dialog as their only text, Veitch (the Swamp Thing artist and writer also known for offbeat projects such as The One and Brat Pack) takes a contrary tack: he mutes his characters and tells the story through accomplished black-and-white artwork while giving each panel an allusive caption that comments on the action rather than delineates it directly. Veitch's ruminations on the nature of God and the mystery and meaning of life will strike some as overheated, but even without them, this is a remarkable allegorical tale. With full-frontal nudity, it is recommended for adult collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-Advertising executive Chad Roe is working on the new Eter-No-Mark permanent marker when its indelible nature causes its stock to plummet unexpectedly. Reeling with shock and disappointment, Chad wakes from "one's prescribed poison" binge to find himself tattooed from tip to toe with his own marker. This transformation takes place immediately before the destruction of the World Trade Center, and the combined experiences send Chad on a surreal, bacchanalian voyage of exploration of America and the inner self, culminating at a celebration modeled on the Burning Man festival. The book's horizontal format creates a series of easily accessible layouts without the complicated panel tiers that can render an ordinary comic page difficult to follow. Combined with the bold line work, which effectively showcases the contrast of Chad's intricate tattoo, the artwork is very legible, telling its story clearly without the need for any additional verbal narration. And good thing, too, as the narrative captions are lumbered with a series of complex metaphors and ruminations, all of which are presented in most purple prose. One of graphic literature's unique features is its ability to have two narratives take place simultaneously, one in the words and another in the images. The parallel verbal and visual narratives here have interesting conjunctions, but the short phrases and constant churn of reference make the verbal portion extremely difficult to absorb. This is a bold experiment, but it's unlikely to provoke the sort of emotion or awareness for which it's clearly aiming.-Benjamin Russell, The Derryfield School, Manchester, NH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
