    Borb, story of a severely alcoholic homeless man

    Jason Little's comic about a downtrodden urban Candide whose misfortunes pile up at an alarming rate

    Borb (available for pre-order on Amazon), by Jason Little, is the story of a severely alcoholic homeless man, a downtrodden urban Candide whose misfortunes pile up at an alarming rate. The narrative is presented as a series of daily newspaper strips as the author pays homage to the depression-era imagery of Harold Gray (Little Orphan Annie) and Frank King (Gasoline Alley) and the long and complex tradition of the comic strip slapstick vagabond archetype. At once hilarious, horrifying, and full of heart, Borb depicts the real horrors specific to present-day urban homelessness.
