The Georgia Straight recommends Clyde Fans

“Graphic novels to make you a holiday superhero” / The Georgia Straight / John Lucas / December 4, 2019

Seth’s magnum opus, some 20 years in the making, gives epic scale to what is essentially a small, simple story of two brothers and the very different paths they chose after their father walked out and stuck them with the family fan business. As I wrote back in April: “Simon is reclusive and philosophical, Abe is brash and garrulous, and each is miserable in his own unique way.” Told through Seth’s singularly striking midcentury-inspired art and enriched by his poetically observational style of storytelling, Clyde Fans is a moving examination of the ways our choices in life can either trap us or set us free.
