Patience by Daniel Clowes

The most anticipated graphic novel of 2016: from the creator of Ghost World.Patience is a psychedelic science-fiction love story, veering with uncanny precision from violent destruction to deeply personal tenderness in a way that is both quintessentially “Clowesian” and utterly unique in the author’s body of work. This 180-page, full-color original graphic novel affords Clowes the opportunity to draw some of the most exuberant and breathtaking pages of his life, and to tell his most suspenseful, surprising and affecting story yet.

entertaining page turner; not condescending.

Love, time travel, and inescapable mortality. Although completely unrealistic, this book is as realistic as any could possibly be. The settings and actions in time are absurd, but I've never seen true, raw love explained and expressed so purely. Following the inexplicable death of his wife, Patience, Jack spends years obsessing over finding and punishing her murderer. Given the opportunity to hop through time and space, Jack travels through Patience's history, skulking in the shadows in a vain attempt to somehow stop her murder from happening. As can be expected when someone tries to mess with time, Jack ends up paying for his actions and seeing more than he bargains for. The art style is vibrant, futuristic, clean, and sometimes nauseating. I've never read anything by Clowes before, but this was an instant favorite. Although he creates Jack as a character who rarely shows much emotion after his wife's death, his actions speak loudly of the love lost along with his partner. This is a beautiful and depressing story that I must now compare all other love stories to.
