Jeff Lemire's Essex County

Essex County by Jeff Lemire Set in an imaginary county in Canada this tale spans generations. Themes of isolation, emotional distance, loss are explored as the mysterious links the characters have to one another are slowly revealed. A great read with beautifully expressive art!
Essex County, Jeff Lemire, 2009. Along with bold, flat colors shown in other examples, I also love scratchy, weathered looks in some art, such as Lemire's scratchy style of inking.
