Silly Daddy: The Long Goodbyeby Joe Chiappetta
Surrealism, beforeit was associated with melting clocks and absurdist imagery, was an attempt to explore the subconscious in art. In Silly Daddy: The Long Goodbye, Joe Chiappetta combines this exploration of the subconscious with the primitive sensibilities of an outsider artist. The Long Goodbye is an autobiographical collection of important (if sometimes banal) accounts of young, inexperienced parenthood, the disintegration of Chiappetta's marriage, and his ever-deepening love and appreciation for his daughter. This graphic novel is spiritual in the most unpretentious way: truisms are never preached or presented as such, but through his stories, through the thoughts he shares with the reader, Chiappetta creates a sense of pathos, hope, and bittersweet love.
