Nope - haven't seen it. But if someone wants to read something really
good, then pick up for about $20.00 the hard bound copy of "LOCAL" which
is not for kids and truly EXCELLENT to read.
I dare anyone to read it and not walk away without a feeling of awe at
what the comics medium can deliver.
BTW - it was written in Brooklyn, but that is besides the point. And
since Chanukah is this week, other recommendations include Planetary, a
scifi thriller...best of the decade.
