Rusty’s Comic Reading List 2016 | January 3, 2016

Wrenchies_Cover
My first comic GN read this year is one I have had on order for a while but has been hard to get it.  Thankfully Comet Comics came through and got my a copy as 2015 wrapped up!

(I happen to know that they got another copy as well, so if this sounds like a book you would like, rush on down and pick it up!)

The Wrenchies is a bizarre book. On one level it seems to be about a gang of youth trying to get by in some sort of post-apocoplyptic wasteland.

Except when it isn’t.

Sometimes it is about a weird kid who likes to dress up in a super-hero costume.

Sometimes it is about two brothers who find a scary man in a cave.

Keep it mind that this isn’t an anthology. It is all one story.

Personally, I think that this book isn’t about any of those things, but rather it is about mental illness and a very disturbed young man. I think of it as a bit of a cross between Joe the Barbarian and Life of Pi.

But maybe you will get something different out of it.

Recommended.
