The Follies of Richard Wadsworth Among B&N Best of June

“The Best Comics & Graphic Novels of June 2019” / Barnes & Noble Blog / Ross Johnson / May 29, 2019

Nick Maandag’s darkly satirical collection of stories follows several characters who find themselves in deeply awkward and uncomfortable situations, usually as a result of their own questionable morals. “Night School” sees a fire Chief attending to a fire alarm during a class and refusing to leave; “The Follies of Richard Wadsworth” finds the title philosophy professor coming up with an absurd business plan while high at a student’s party; and “The Disciple” follows sexual shenanigans at a coed Buddhist monastery. If the comedy of awkward silences and cringeworthy behavior is your thing, Maandag delivers.
