The Underwater Welderby Jeff Lemire
Pressure. As an underwater welder on an oilrig off the coast of Nova Scotia, Jack Joseph is used to the immense pressures of deep-sea work. Nothing, however, could prepare him for the pressures of impending fatherhood. As Jack dives deeper and deeper, he seems to pull further and further away from his young wife, and their unborn son. But then, something happens deep on the ocean floor. Jack has a strange and mind-bending encounter that will change the course of his life forever. ... Equal parts blue-collar character study and mind-bending science fiction epic, The Underwater Welder is a 250-page graphic novel that explores fathers and sons, birth and death, memory and truth, and treasures we all bury deep down inside.

This was an awesome graphic novel. I loved the artwork as well as the story. The story flips back and forth between past and present and is wonderfully woven.
Nicely done all the way around. Very human story...old story but never gets old. The veracity of the story works on multiple levels. More intense than Essex County. The black & white drawings are good to superb. Story-telling is excellent. Recommended.
