Jeff Lemire is one of the finest craftsmen of literary graphic novels working today, and the Essex County trilogy is his masterpiece. A bit of Southern Gothic for rural Canada, Essex County is a triptych on guilt and grief, and the ways places lay claim to the people who inhabit them. Smart, complex, and full of heart, this is a must-read for serious graphic novel fans, or any fan of well-told stories.
