    “Wilson” is possibly Clowes’ best work, and that’s saying something. If anyone is curious, I did a review of it too, at my site, but the basic gist is:

    a) It’s really good.
    b) It’s Dan Clowes, so of course it’s good
    c) But it’s even really good for Clowes.

    So, y’know, if’n you don’t wanna bother clickin’ that link.

    Seriously, though, Clowes is just amazing.

    Sounds like Harvey Pekar redux

    I read Wilson earlier today, by myself, in a mostly empty Starbucks, and it was one of the most depressing experiences in the last year or so. (It was just edged out by a Passover Seder in a hospital room.) A little too close to home, perhaps.

    Umm, am I the only one who thinks that that guy looks like Kevin Smith in the first frame?

    This is surreal. My name is Wilson, and that guy and his dog look just like me and my dog except I’m not bald. Am I awake right now?

    Also applicable to the final frame, as usual: “christ, what an asshole!”

    It’s about a lonely, unemployed, self-loathing, passive-aggressive sad-sack who goes through life making himself and the people around him miserable.

    And it’s about time.
