Details

In his first graphic novel Seth pays homage to the wit and sophistication of New Yorker cartoons. While trying to understand his dissatisfaction with the present, Seth discovers the life and work of Kalo, a forgotten gag cartoonist from the 1940s. But his obsession blinds him to the needs of his lover and the quiet desperation of his family. Wry self-reflection and moody colours characterize Seth's style in this tale about learning lessons from nostalgia. His playful and sophisticated experiment with memoir provoked a furious debate among cartoon historians and archivists about the existence of Kalo, and prompted a Details feature about Seth's 'hoax.'
