Volume one of Matt Kindt's series about a trailer park "kingdom" in the American west, grasslands. I read half of this in single issues and now read the whole thing.

The story and art allow for occasional dips into magical realism in an effective way to illuminate the obsessions or delus...

This outlaw saga of an off-the-grid sovereign rural community facing off against a corrupt sheriff of an adjacent community has the look and feel of a Jeff LeMire take on a Jason Aaron crime story. The watercolors soften the blow of what might otherwise be a grittily bleak and naturalistic tale,...
