Overview

  • From Brian Wood (Demo, DMZ, Northlanders) and Ryan

    Kelly (Lucifer, American Virgin) comes Local, a collection

    of twelve interconnected short stories. Crossing genres as it crosses the

    country, Local examines Megan McKeenan, a young woman who sets off from

    Portland, OR with nothing but a backpack and a bad case of wanderlust. Each

    emotional vignette is a self-contained story that represents one year in the

    life of this young vagabond as she struggles to find a place to call home, both

    physically and spiritually.

Meet Megan, a selfish, self destructive girl who you will have mixed feelings for. She is also one of the most compelling characters ever made

Local follows one character (mostly) on her journey through a number of different cities in North America. Each move to a new city teaches the main character, Meg, new things about how to be a person in the real world. The drawings for each city do a great job of showcasing familiar local architectures. Local takes place in Minnesota, Oregon, Veremont, Arizona, Canada, New York City among others, and in each of these cities it feels like the author and artist have been to the location. It's a great book and an enjoyable read.
