    1. David Schaafsma on said:

      I first read Closser's second work, the more darkly surreal and experimental Black Rat, then went back to this first volume of his work, a collection of 72 daily newspaper-style comic strips, sepia-toned, looking like they were found in a box in somebody's basement. These would appear to be an homage to the age of early comics including Harold Gray's Orphan Annie, since the hollow eyes are reminiscent of that style, but this is also Katzenjammer kids and so many other comics from the early days.

      This may be improperly labeled as a juvenile graphic novel. It employs a vintage approach obviously, but that style enhances the decidedly dark storyline and the result is an appealing mix of innocence and dread. Totally awesome.

      Very cool! This book is done in a retro-vintage style that works very well. Closser's style is sort of a cross between Roy Crane and Harold Gray by way of Tony Millionaire. The title pretty much sums up the book. Little Tommy gets lost and has adventures. Will he ever be reunited with his parents? Not in this book, certainly. There are possible nods to other classic comic strips (Little Nemo In Slumberland, Gasoline Alley) along the way. The story is melodramatic, sure, but never quite crosses t [...]

      With deceptively simple imagery, using simple language that recalls the dialect of the Missouri side of the Ozarks, this story of an abducted boy has the same emotional stakes as something out of Dickens. I really can't wait to read Book Two.

    5. Adrean Clark on said:

      Captures the vintage adventuring feel of early comic strips like Little Orphan Annie. I thoroughly enjoyed following the adventures of the titular hero. The way the comic strips are padded 2 to a page feels like it could have been more substantial but still a good read.
