Gary Groth draws a sad and haunting tale of family dysfunction. When aging parents announce their divorce their adult children try to make sense of their roles in this fractured family.

Really good story about a family and their dynamics. There were some crude moments but I thought they fit into the story. I really like how the author would put these very minute details into the story. The drawings were also really good.

Amazingly good. Reading it felt like watching a really good indie movie.

A frog tells the story of a young disaffected twenty-something alienated from himself and his family. He attends the last family vacation with his parents, older siblings, young niece and todler nephew. On this vacation he experiences the end of a life long love -- his parents announce their divorce -- and what appears to be the beginning of a romantic relationship with a young beach comber. The angst greatly outweighs the profundity but the tale is compelling and fast moving. Despite the sad outline the drawings are curious and the story is revealed with some suspense. The reading made up an enjoyable afternoon real life.
