Local - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal

Originally uploaded by ABMann
Two things about Brian Wood:
1. He writes compelling characters.
2. He completes a story poorly.

I really enjoyed this series overall but the last issue felt like a
cop out. Some cheap intespection via ghostly apparition rather than
direct character interaction with people from her past. I think of he
steerched another issue, he could have wrapped it better.

That said, every detail about the character's journey through various
locations by way of vignettes is enjoyable. Engrossing, even.

I wonder if he hadn't planned the end until late in the game. I can
see ways to better weave parts from the last issue through the
previous to better build the denoument.

Still. I'll read it again. :)

I'm curious about the comic, but I can't do it. I swore vows to hate hipster culture with a vengeance and I'm still a bit sore over how poorly Northlanders has been going.
